Following a masterful Fall/Winter 2020 presentation, TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. opened its new flagship store, “TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist.FUKUOKA,” in Fukuoka City, Japan, this past Wednesday, February 5, alongside the in-store release of its Spring/Summer 2020 collection dubbed “duet.” And to celebrate, the Japanese fashion label released a number of flagship exclusives.
The spotlighted item: a limited-edition hand-painted LS T-shirt in collaboration with Levi Pata, a California-based artist who is based in Kyoto and who previously collaborated with the Takahiro Miyashita-helmed brand for its Fall/Winter 2019 collection. The design of the LS T-Shirt sees bold words written all over, such as “BLACK HOLE SUN,” “EVERYBODY HURTS,” “CUT YOUR HAIR,” and “SEVEN NATION ARMY.”
In addition, one-of-a-kind repurposed clothings were amongst the releases, including bomber jackets reconstructed from Aztec-printed vintage quilts, leopard pattern Mexican parkas with Aztec accents, and a patchwork shirt-hoodie made up of different plaid shirts. Three “dictionary hoodies” in black were also part of the exclusives, defining the words “Blue eyed soul,” “Shoegazer,” and “Alternative Rock.”
