THE SOLOIST Spring / Summer 2011 Lookbook
When Number (N)ine, Japanese cult favorite went away after Fall 2009, my friends and I were extremely saddened by the news. Number (N)ine WAS Japanese avante garde menswear at its best.
Takahiro Miyashita, the designer behind the line, rumored to have some disease (not validated), is now back with his latest line- The Soloist. I personally think the time off was definitely good for him as this Spring / Summer 2011 is pretty amazing.
Whereas his previous line was about rock n' roll and music influences, The Soloist represents a much more mature and subdued Takahiro Miyashita. The colors and cuts are quieter...but nonetheless still avante garde and couture-like. Amazing.
