TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. SS23 Collection

We would like to present to you the S/S 2023 collection of TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist, titled “GRAY.”

In this collection, inspired, again, by one of his heroes, Kurt Cobain, the cult Japanese designer Takahiro Miyashita continues his experiments in back-to-front and inside-out tailoring and gender neutral clothing, turning imperfection into an art form. The tromp-l’oeil effect of the first part of the collection is created by hand painting on medical gowns – after all, Cobain spent a lot of time in hospitals, and we can attest through an in-person experience that the back-to-front tailoring is gravity-defying in terms of design and continues to prove that Miyashita remains a decidedly singular talent in a sea of grayness that defines contemporary fashion.

TakahiroMiyashitaTheSoloist Opens a Pop-Up Store in New York

Takahiro Miyashita of the Japanese menswear brand TheSoloist has always had affinity for New York. The only outpost for his first label, Number (N)ine, outside of Japan was here in TriBeCa. Much of it has to do with Al Albayan, who has been Miyashita’s right hand since the early N(N) days. Together, they have cooked up something for New York once again. RE:AL is TheSoloist is a pop-up shop, again in TriBeCa that opened last weekend and will run through July. The idea was to open a version of an airport gift shop. Miyashita is fond of traveling and not fond of diffusion lines, so doing something quite different but still familiar seemed like a fitting idea.
