I first met Abdul Abasi and Greg Rosborough of Abasi Rosborough several years ago at Colibri, the textile and garment dyeing studio in New York while they were working on their first collection. It is rare in New York to see a brand that produces menswear that transcends the usual tropes of streetwear or “classic with a twist.” What I saw in their work from day one is real design – thoughtful, deliberate, painstaking – especially evident in the way they approached tailoring by making it relevant to the way men dress today. I continued to follow their impressive work each season.
Two weeks ago I met with Takahira Miyashita, the Japanese fashion designer of the mens brand TAKAHIRAMIYASHITATheSoloist. Miyashita’s original brand Number (N)ine made a mark on men’s fashion during the past decade when menswear was at its height in terms of reinterpreting youth culture.
