TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist.: AW17 Sample Monster Parka
From his initial brand Number (N)ine that achieved cult status to his now ultra-niche brand, Japanese designer Takahiro Miyashita ceases to compromise quality in favor of profit. For his Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection ‘Alternative Tentacles,’ Miyashita drawed inspiration from underwater monsters (Ex. octopuses, squids, tentacles, …) and military silhouettes. The result is a cohesive selection of clothing that shrouds the wearer in mystique.
Taking on an abrasive attitude with no signs of weaknesses, the Monster Parka enwraps the individual in a cloak unlike any other. The piece features luxurious wool material with oversized pockets and extensive zippers. The wearer can enter the piece from the backside by unzipping upwards. Subtle details include leather lining, face mask attachable by velcro, and Soloist-branded zipper pulls. In addition the piece is a sample piece, produced prior to the official ready-to-wear collection thus generally unreleased to the general public. Tagged Size 46 but fits oversized.
