Number (N)ine: AW05 Rabbit Fur Vest
Highly regarded as Number (N)ine's most notable collection during its run, Autumn/Winter 2005 collection 'The High Streets' proved to the world that the punk spirit and the intricacies of high fashion can fuse into one. With the name taken from designer Takahiro Miyashita's band, 'The High Streets' finds inspiration from the grunge aesthetic, the fashion style of Kurt Cobain, and Native American clothing. By fusing all elements into each article of clothing, the collection in its entirety proves that one simply cannot be kept under one category.
An extreme rarity even amongst archival collectors, the fur vests produced for Number (N)ine's AW05 collection retailed for approximately $3500 USD in Japan alone and are constructed entirely of real fur. This particular vest is created with rabbit fur, with the silhouette taking the form of a formal vest. A masterful combination of the Kurt Cobain aesthetic, Native American clothing, and a high-brow attitude.
