Founder and Designer for Japanese label NEIGHBORHOOD.
Grew up with a passion for British punk, both music and style, revolving around the Sex Pistols and the Clash at the time. Then along with his great love for motorcycles. He has created a brand that reflects these passions, while not being stuck by just targeting one aspect or influence of the brand.
His attention to detail intrigued me, not with just the clothes he creates, but the way he has created his brands image, every lookbook and editorial, the website and photos displayed on it, every aspect, down to the smallest detail has been analysed.
Running a brand and being a photographer myself, these are things that I aim to achieve, to stay true to what I started with, to not sell out or let other opinions (money) persuade me.
Also this is not my photo.
