FLIGHT JACKET TYPE II
After leaving influential Japanese cult label Number (N)ine in 2009, designer Takahiro Miyashita wasted no time in founding his next venture, an eponymous label called TAKAHIROMIYASHITA The Soloist. As the name suggests, the brand’s output represents a completely unfettered execution of Miyashita’s personal style and creative vision.
The Soloist moniker proves to be an especially apt one, as the rock subculture influences of Miyashita’s previous work are infused with the sophistication of virtuoso tailoring, intricate attention to detail, and an innovative, progressive design sensibility.
Whatever images of classic style that the words "flight jacket" are conjuring up, forget them. Inhabiting a space between avant garde design and actual, in-flight emergency equipment, the Flight Jacket Type II takes the safety orange, utilitarian text branded, polyethylene construction as the Autumn/Winter collection's Mask and Personal Effects bags, and outfits an entire outerwear piece with them.
