Japanese grunge imprint TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist. has returned with two iterations of its Helmets in technical print polyester Outlast® fabric. The fabric is designed to absorb excess heat and further stores it to lower skin temperature within hot and humid conditions, then releases that stored heat in colder conditions.
The navy iteration dons a photo print with artwork by photographer Charles Peterson, whose name is further imprinted on the various straps emblazoned on the helmet. The black iteration utilizes an allover star, moon, and music note print, donning various sayings that are in-line with the brand’s grunge and punk aesthetic. Leather toggles mark the straps of both versions, with ribbon ties near the collar for modular capabilities. In terms of overall construction, the helmet utilizes a drafted-ear design with a mesh-hood lining.
Take a look at the helmets above, and if you’re interested in picking up either of the made-in-Japan headpieces, head over to HAVEN’s web store where they are retailing for $747 USD for the black iteration and $898 USD for the navy.
