After unveiling its project with P.A.M. last month, NEIGHBORHOOD has returned with another collaboration, this time calling in Japanese photographer Osamu Nagahama for an expansive SS20 lineup. Nagahama has been known for his dramatic tones and compositions, mostly recognized for published works like Angel of Hell and My blues road. This particular release comes with a photobook titled Cotton Fields, with an accompanying essay by Brucemen.
The assemblage sees a range of casual staples, spanning T-shirts, button-ups, hoodies and long-sleeves, emblazoned with still images by Nagahama. One standout piece is a white button-up shirt displaying the words “CONSUME” and “CONFORM.” The former word is placed at the front of the piece, just above a darkened image of a moving train, while the back sees an image of a group of police holding rifles and shotguns under the word “CONFORM.” As a finishing touch, the shirt comes with branded cream-colored buttons and a semi-loose fit.
Another highlight is a black hoodie with a contrasting graphic of a race car burning its tires during a turn. “SUBMIT///” is placed above the print, next to Nagahama’s signature, while the back of the hoodie boasts an image of a man’s shadow behind a fire — “SLEEP///” appears on top of the image. Other garments like the black and white graphic tees, heather gray long-sleeve and the photobook Cotton Fields round up the expansive capsule.
The Osamu Nagahama x NEIGHBORHOOD SS20 capsule is currently available at NEIGHBORHOOD’s website, ranging from $80 – $242 USD.
