Part of the Fashionable Selby book, delving into the space of global fashion-y folk including Dries Van Noten and Nicola Formichetti, here we get a peek into the life and designs of the Blackmeans crew. Founders and hardcore punks Yujiro Komatsu, Takatomo Ariga, and Masatomo Ariga keep that DIY spirit alive with their handmade takes on old leathers, mixing and matching new elements, chopping off sleeves and getting stud happy for their loyal band of followers/customers. Having recently popped up at Opening Ceremony as well as displaying their wares at the Leather Japan exhibition in NYC, find out more about this dedicated gang in the below film.
