NEIGHBORHOOD

We are proud to announce that we are now stocking NEIGHBORHOOD Technical Apparel at our NYC Flagship and Webstore. Conceived in 1994 by designer Shinsuke Takizawa, the brand was created with the concept of “basic clothing created by digesting unique interpretations of elements from motorcycles, military, outdoor, trad, etc. and also suggesting this lifestyle.” The brand was created in Harajuku, Tokyo, when Takizawa was involved in motorcycles and the surrounding counter culture. The collections offered consist of jackets, damage-modification processed denim, graphic tees and various accessories from incense sticks to small leather goods.

We also stock LUKER BY NEIGHBORHOOD, a sub-brand created in 2009 that features designs with a British influence. NEIGHBORHOOD and LUKER are both available now, in-store and online. Hit the jump for more images.
