Editor’s Notes: If you're into patchwork, bandana prints, and flannels, this might just be heaven – Needles and MIYAGIHIDETAKA have teamed up for a collaborative capsule collection.
The range combines MIYAGIHIDETAKA's signature paisley motifs in a handful of colors with Needles' classic 7 Cut Rebuild shirt and Ribbon Shirt, creating pieces that are a visual overload for the eyes – in the best way possible.
Needles' classic sweatsuits have also gotten the paisley treatment. The pants and jacket feature a patchwork design using mutli-colored paisley motifs and are finished up with stripes down the legs and arms, as well as the label's butterfly logo.
Both Needles and MIYAGIHIDETAKA have become popular brands beyond Japan, gaining a massive international presence, collaborating with some of the biggest brands worldwide. Just this year, Needles has teamed up with Dr. Martens, AWGE, and Wrangler, and MIYAGIHIDETAKA has previously partnered with Highsnobiety on an exclusive capsule collection.
The five-piece capsule collection is releasing exclusively at Nepenthes Tokyo, as well as at IMA:ZINE, on November 20th. Prices range between ¥29,700 ($260) and ¥96,800 ($610).
