Missing Since Thursday Releases Japanese Film-Inspired Apparel
The “Kakihara” drop transforms the world of director Takashi Miike into violent, colorful designs.
With designs that mix punk and hip-hop style influences, Missing Since Thursday has dropped new apparel that pay homage to director Takashi Miike. Released last week on the brand’s website, the Kakihara collection uses bold graphics to reference legendary films like “Ichi the Killer.”
Co-signed by City Morgue, a horror-loving hip-hop group from New York, Missing Since Thursday offers designs that speak to a wide range of style identities. When finding inspiration in Miike’s films, the brand was drawn to Kakihara, a Yakuza-enforcer character with a strong sense of style and individuality. Across long sleeve T-shirts and sweatpants, Kakihara’s face has been blown up and layered with a bright, red overlay.
Shared on Missing Since Thursday’s Instagram account, the Kakihara apparel has been shot by Bobby Banks, then collaged into a violent array of colors. The models also stand in front of racing-inspired garments from a past Missing From Thursday release. With prices ranging from $80 to $130 USD, the Kakihara collection is now available at Missing Since Thursday’s website.
