It’s been about six years since REVOLVER last put something out. Founded by KIRI and ARATA in 1998, REVOLVER was an iconic Japanese streetwear brand that held some significant influence on early Japanese streetwear, flourishing largely at the heart of the Ura-Harajuku years. After a long hiatus, the label has finally announced its return, presenting a concise lookbook modeled by Stockholm rapper and producer BLADEE.

Featured is an assemblage of casual staples like hoodies, long-sleeves, jackets, pants and accessories, emblazoned with special artwork by Cali Thornhill DeWitt and Kosuke Kawamura, alongside other garments with intricate patterns. One noteworthy piece is a black long-sleeve with a thinly outlined print of cobras. The motif comes in a dark purple hue, placed on both the front and back sides of the shirt. At the front, one snake appears just above the “REVOLVER” branding at the upper left chest; the back features two cobras printed in large across the yoke.

Another highlight is the monochromatic coach jacket made up of asymmetrical panels. The letters “RV” is embroidered in white over the left chest pocket, contrasted against the dark gray and black sections of the body — this garment comes with matching trousers that also see “RV” branding near the left pocket. Other pieces like a collaborative bag with nana-nana, a logo hoodie and a black bucket hat round up the assemblage.

Some items from REVOLVER’s new capsule will be pre-releasing at GR8’s physical store on January 22, while the full range will be available at ZOZOTOWN’s website on January 29.
