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.
No, outward displays of Takahiro Miyashita's outre impulses here. The Soloist's take on the classic Varsity Jacket opts for minimalist chic and updated performance technology, as the familiar form is rendered in ultra soft wool, with the traditional leather moving from the sleeves to a subtle trimming of the front slash pockets. An insulated, quilted lining offers functionality to go along with this sophisticated update of the collegiate staple.
