Editor’s Notes: Japanese streetwear heavy hitter WTAPS and Hiroshi Fujiwara’s label fragment design have teamed up for a small capsule collection available to cop exclusively at Fujiwara’s Toyko concept store THE CONVENI.
Drawing inspiration from toymaker Mattel’s classic strategy game Othello (aka Reversi), pieces boast either checkerboard detailing, a black and/or white colorway, and branding from both WTAPS and fragment. Of course, a board game-inspired collection wouldn’t be complete without an actual game, so the collab also includes a miniature transportable version Othello, with branded counters replacing the traditional discs.
The collection comprises T-shirts, sweaters, long-sleeved crew necks, and a wallet.
