fragment and its founder, Hiroshi Fujiwara are some of the most recognized names in street culture; although better known as an artist than established designer, he’s created a cult following by bringing streetwear to Japan. Combining a high-end sensibility and signature edge, Fujiwara is regarded of creating the Japanese aesthetic many have come to appreciate.
Following last season’s hugely successful collaboration sold at a pop-up in Japan that apparently sold out the day it was launched, Louis Vuitton & fragments come together again to release a line-up that’s part of the Fall-Winter 2017 Pre-Collection for men. After debuting in Asia last month, the capsule finally makes its way stateside – exclusively available at a New York City pop-up shop in SoHo. It will have a wider release at Louis Vuitton stores worldwide but expect locations and stock to be SUPER LIMITED. If you’re in NY, the pop-up is at 122 Greene Street until June 30!
Staples include a varsity jacket, scout shirt and matching shorts, accessories like bags and wallets emblazoned with Louis Vuitton’s monogram rendered in a charcoal grey and black, with slight hits of iridescent hardware and fragment design’s trademark lighting icon.
The bags & bear have my name written all over them – how about you guys?
