Hirofumi Kiyonaga is a livewire in the realm of streetwear and sportswear. In 2016, the Japanese go-getter continued to keep busy with his SOPHNET. line, his Hiroshi Fujiwara-partnered label uniform experiment, as well as his fictitious soccer club F.C.R.B. This year, the iconic designer made the jaws of SOPH. stans drop in unison when he launched SOPHNET.’s online store in October and a brick-and-mortar location in the affluent Roppongi Hills district in Tokyo; F.C.R.B.’s collaboration with Coca-Cola on a series of lush kits; as well as joining forces with Gramicci and Woolrich for the 17th anniversary of his SOPHNET. brand’s Tokyo flagship.
Anyone who has their eyes set on technical sportswear garments should definitely keep tabs on Kiyonaga and his seemingly endless amount of projects and partnerships.
