Needles is Japanese design maven Keizo Shimizu’s almost avant garde take on vintage and utilitarian clothing. Repurposing is taken to an extreme, as vintage garments and fabrics are fashioned into entirely new garments, blending a classic aesthetic with a progressive, contemporary sensibility.
It's about time somebody came along to breath new life into the varsity jacket. The addition of leopard print accents to the classic base, in addition to being supremely stylish, is an ideal signifier that getting too close to this jacket will absolutely not lead to any anecdotes about quarter century old high school football games.
