Nigo needs no introduction, but the latest project involving the Bathing Ape founder and all-around streetwear maven is not exactly what most people might expect from this fashion legend. The new brand, Human Made, is a joint venture between Nigo and enigmatic graphic artist Sk8thing and combines exacting construction standards, impeccable historical accuracy, courtesy of vintage reproduction experts Warehouse, and lighthearted graphic contributions from Sk8thing. By doing so, Human Made is credited as an earnest homage and unique twist on wardrobe staples.
Human Made goes for broke in the tactical chic department. An olive drab, nylon waist bag with nylon tape utility webbing and an array of pockets and compartments leave the wearer looking like they, and their gear, arrived on the scene in a BAPE camo painted Mi-24 Hind helicopter. (That doesn't exist by the way, don't try to search for one.)
