Where the runway meets the street

The news has been doing the rounds over the weekend, but we felt we should start the week with this news for posterity. Number (N)ine’s recently displayed AW09 collection – which was called ‘a closed feeling’ – will be their last. Hint Magazine received a letter from the company stating that “When you’re finished changing, you’re finished”. Whether founding member Takahiro Miyashita will start up another company remains to be seen, but this seems to be one designer closure that has nothing to do with the economy.
