Number (N)ine by Takahiro Miyashita AW02 Patchwork Long Sleeve. Aw02’s runway, titled “Nowhere Man”, was set in an edwardian themed viewing room assorted with dining chairs and tables. Models slowly sauntered along the catwalk wearing knits, muddy tones, felt hats, wool cardigans revolving around the ethos of The Beatles guitarist George Harrison. This is all a bit irrelevant though as these patchwork shirts weren’t featured on the runway. These shirts are all 1 of 1, constructed from a stack of shirts, pieced out and sewn together jointed by a silk braid piping. What we have here is a sz 4, rendering this item quite desirable amongst collectors as these run quite small and lanky.
7/10, mild holes, neck stretching is very common with these shirts. Size 4 fits M-L.

Issey Miyake Tee with graphics by Takashi Murakami. From the Issey Miyake Mens collection released in ~SS1999-2000 entitled “Smoothed Edges.” Within this collection Issey and Takashi experimented with pre-shrunken silhouettes, giving the graphics a visibly worn texture. Takashi’s infamous character motifs, such as the “Flower of Joy,” serve as the focal point of this collaboration. This is one of the earliest Murakami collaborations with any designer or artist making these tees rather difficult to find.8/10 condition. Fits a slim M
Stephen Sprouse “S” 88 Multicolor Border Knit Sweater. For this season and a few seasons onward before his bankruptcy, Sprouse utilized his “xerox on xerox” designs which look were a staple in the late 80s and early 90s before it peaked as a cliche in the mid 90s. Stephen Sprouse pioneered his version of the xerox design at the Andy Warhol factory by xeroxing models/figures and creating a collage resembling the look in the advert pictured here featuring the border knit sweater. The hodgepodge presentation of subjects photographed individually in different contexts, yet grouped together by their essence through a curator, with thick borders, filtered photo degradation and accentuated sharpness as a byproduct from xeroxing the same image consecutively were ubiquitous in 90s youth media.9/10 condition.
