Japan’s population pushes nearly 127 million and as such offers an eclectic mix of old-fashioned manners, modern living, street food comparable to their most delicate dishes, banana-shaped iPhone cases and, needless to say, fashion worth a double take.
The second edition of Clutch Collection was once again set up and hosted by Atsushi Matsushima, Editor in Chief of CLUTCH magazine, one of Japan’s leading men’s heritage style publications. Just like last year, the annual event was held at Oosanbashi Hall in the heart of Yokohama and counted both foreign and Japanese buyers amongst attendees.
Vintage dealers showed up to present their rarest wares, many of which they opted to wear, while brands like Haversack, Yuketen, Stevenson Overall, The Real McCoy’s and Evisu by Yamane showcased their Spring/Summer 2016 collections.
As is typical of Japanese fashion, heritage and vintage pieces could be seen alongside modern streetwear staples like Nike kicks and Chucks.
Without a doubt, all of the customized antique jewelry and one-of-a-kind hats were the highlights of this year’s show. With another successful iteration under their belt, we look forward to seeing what CC Show has in store for us in the future.
