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.
Fun fact: the traditional Japanese sailor suit and gakuran school uniforms first adopted during the Meiji era were derived from European military uniforms. Human Made's military mask, a traditional military cap with a removable, wrap-around face mask is a worthy addition to this historical lineage. Although, it's probably a bit too cutting edge to pass muster as an actual uniform.
