nigo complex closets

Complex is back with another episode of Complex Closets. For the latest installment, host Joe La Puma ventures out to Japan to meet up with recent cover star Nigo to explore his rare collection of vintage clothing, pop-cultural artifacts, and a look at a million dollars worth of jewelry.

Nigo’s massive atelier houses 10,000 items of clothing—3,000 of which are covered in plastic garment bags and hung, by category, across six warehouse racks; the rest are stored in olive green Human Made-branded plastic crates, according to Complex. The placed is filled with rare pop culture items Pee-wee Herman’s original suit; Bing Crosby’s denim tuxedo; the first-ever Levi’s denim jacket, made over 100 years ago, and more.

If that wasn’t enough, the designer later gives Complex a closer look at his jewelry collection filled with Human Made logo chains made with rubies and white diamonds. All together, the collection is worth over a million dollars. Other notable pieces shown include a Vanson leather jacket, original designs by Undercover’s Jun Takahashi, and a guitar gifted from the Beastie Boys.
