Bandana is lined with white silk with a print of the Lamborghini print Miyashita used in the early 00's. These bandanas are made in house in collaboration with Worn On LA as catalyst to our upcoming production facility set to start cutting & sewing later this quarter.$58
Number (N)ine’s “Mechanic” logo-type designed by Takashi Komatsu is idiosyncratic of the brand’s creator Takahiro Miyashita’s larger narrative. Logo-flips were one of the first graphical techniques he practiced when the brand first started in 1997, usually referencing the visual language of music genres that resonated with him at a younger age. The Mechanic logo-type first appeared during the S/S 2000 “Extra Heavy” collection, applied as patches on outerwear, inline fabric on pockets, and screen-printed on numerous garments. The mechanic design effortlessly characterized the Golden Age of Rock n’ Roll, and has continually resonated with members of streetwear culture, ensuring its place within the canon of staple graphics.65 of these bandanas are only available. 22" x 22"

Continuing the interview with Takahiro Miyashita, the focus shifts towards the stylist of Number (N)ine: Hirishi Noguchi. Long term N(N) stylist chimed in on Miyashita's outlook with the brand stating that "Miyashita wasn't partial to the brand since 2007". This occurred after his 2006 "Axl Rose" collection which Miyashita debuted as a "joke", but the audience's reaction was too stern for the designer, leaving him disappointed. He was expecting Miyashita to step down from Number (N)ine since fall of last year so it didn't come to a surprise when the announcement came 08 of January. Noguchi then knew that the following collections were purely out of the designer's creative aspirations with little interest in monetary return. The interview closed with Noguchi stating that he sat back, understood the path that Miyashita was taking and simply "watched him run".
