The latest drop from the Hiroshi Fujiwara-led AK457 Burton line sees a capsule that pays homage to the snowy mountains of Seki Mountain (an onsen resort in Niigata Prefecture), and Hakkōda Mountain (Aomori Prefecture).
The capsule lends itself to more simple graphics as the Seki version has “NG457” in the front denoting Niigata while the emoji for onsen is present at the back with a Fragment lightning bolt logo. The Hakkōda version has “AM457” in the front while a snow-covered mountain vector is matched with a Fragment logo.
Co-created with Burton team rider Takeuchi Masanori, the collection will by exclusive to the Burton flagship in Tokyo, Nagoya, as well as on the Burton JP online store. For those interested in pricing, the hoodie and T-shirt will retail for ¥7,900 JPY and ¥4,900 JPY (approximately $70 USD and $45 USD), respectively.
