TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist.‘s Spring/Summer 2019 collection, which boasts the catchy title of “SONG #2 (temporary) Written by: (Oscar / Takahiro),” saw designer Takahiro Miyashita reuniting with famed grunge photographer Charles Peterson for more graphic goods. Miyashita and Peterson have worked together since Miyashita oversaw his high-concept NUMBER (N)INE label, but there’s no end to Miyashita’s earnest adoration of the Seattle music scene that Peterson so deftly captured on film.

Encompassing a wide array of layering pieces, the clothes are mostly executed in monochrome hues so as to emphasize Peterson’s atmospheric images. Waffle-knit long-sleeved shirts and turtlenecks sport various black-and-white photos along with text like The Grunge Years, a nod to the seminal Sub-Pop anthology album, and Screaming Life, the name of one of Soundgarden’s best-known LPs.

A substantial helmet jacket is the crown jewel of the release, every inch of the militaristic garment emblazoned with blown-up photos of Kurt Cobain. The blown-up motif carries over to a red holster bag, also featuring Kurt’s visage, while a pair of vibrant neckwarmers juxtapose Cobain’s image with that of his wife, Courtney Love.

Shop TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist.’s SS19 grunge goods at stockists like Idol Brooklyn and SSENSE. Keep up with Miyashita’s music taste via his @tkhrthesoloistmyst account below.
