Neighborhood was created in the early 90’s by Shinsuke Takizawa in Harajuku Tokyo. I love their overall kick-ass aesthetic. The branding is consistent, from their products to their stores and special releases. Their lines are inspired by the cultural references and stories that make me kick. They also branch out into very interesting projects, for example, SRL (Specimen Research Laboratory), a greenhouse and clothing line infused by the owner's fascination with exotic plants.
The PARK-ing was a conceptual retail experience, located in, well… a parking from the Sony building (see the PARK-ing post). This sweater, I brought as a souvenir, is made from a better quality fabric, as you would expect from a Japanese product. Simple design, and nice typographic details in the back.
This old hand painted advertisement gem was hiding behind a street billboard. It makes you want to see what’s behind all of them across the city.
