Fresh off its latest sweater collection with John Smedley, Hiroshi Fujiwara‘s fragment design has teamed with New Era for a monochromatic headwear capsule. Featuring fitted caps, dad hats, beanies and more, the offerings boast a wealth of fragment’s signature graphics, most — but not all — of which are applied tonally.
These familiar embellishments range from large lightning bolt and FRGMNT spell out graphics on low-profile hats and mesh truckers to a “fragmentdesign” hit on another dad hat and a varsity-style “FRG” graphic on the fitted hat. The knit beanie supplies a patch with technical text on its front, and a traditional work cap completes the offerings with a signature encircled lightning bolt hit on its side. The offerings continue New Era’s celebration of its 100th anniversary, following up a wealth of collaborations with entities like Palace, Yohji Yamamoto, Awake and Helmut Lang.
Only available in Asia, the fragment design x New Era headwear collection’s prices range from ¥5940 JPY (approximately $57 USD) for the knit beanie to ¥9900 JPY (approximately $95 USD) for the 5950 fitted hat.
