Achievement
For 2018, Shinsuke Takizawa and his Japanese streetwear label NEIGHBORHOOD focused heavily on footwear and accessories, with extensive collaborative efforts alongside BBC, fragment design, Chaco, Dr. Martens, Old Joe Brand, Anti Social Social Club, Leatherman and more. Multiple accessory and apparel projects brought more of the brand’s monochromatic aesthetic (an ode to the burgeoning Ura-Harajuku movement of which Takizawa was integral to), while his adoration of the outdoors is exemplified by a dual-branded release with lifestyle brand Helinox and Outdoor Products. Lastly, long-standing collaborations, like with Porter and adidas solidifies NEIGHBORHOOD’s connection to industry leads, while still presenting strong in-line collections that harness the brand’s continuing ethos of underground motorcycle/Americana influence.
