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.
An expanded version of the standard TAKAHIROMIYASHITA The Soloist personal effects bag, featuring quilted nylon construction, and a DIY patch-style, sewn panel with poetic verse is a combination of designer flash and drifting wanderlust. So, like, The Eagles or Fleetwood Mac, but it carries your stuff.
