Taking part in the Rakuten Tokyo Manner Week, storied Japanese leather specialist Blackmens recently made its runway debut. Showcasing its Fall/Winter 2022 collection, the punk-fueled label helmed by Yujiro Komatsu and Masatomo Ariga highlighted their developments made over the years.

Soundtracked by the minyo music and taiko drumming-inspired sonics of Turtle Island, the collection that made its way down the stage explored the matured outlook of Blackmeans.

Aside from its signature leather works and Hiroshima-made denim offerings are takes on tailoring, fleece styles and full scab garments that continue the labels punk roots. Leaning into its understanding of punk styling, Blackmeans developed its personal expression of the ubiquitous theme. Delivering an avant-garde angle that feels authentic and original through a distinct tinge of traditional Japanese flair. Rounding up the collection were boots and other footwear that expanded the label’s leather craftsmanship into a greater realm of functionality.

Take a look at Blackmeans FW22 collection above.
