Neighborhood ’2nd Series’ – November 2014 Drop

October 31st, 2014

The latest drop from heavyweight Japanese impresarios Neighborhood has arrived and, as usual, is a daring marriage of post-war Americana styling, a love for custom motorcycles and a strong nod to the founding principles of streetwear.

Celebrating its 20th year, NBDH’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, dubbed ‘2nd Series’, is typical of designer Shinsuke Takizawa vision of eschewing trends for clothing that ‘makes people’s lives fuller’.

November 2014′s drop sees Takizawa’s influences melded with an eye for contemporary military apparel with a strong zebra-print camouflage pattern adorning pieces such as the M-65 and Deck jackets as well as a set of lightweight overshirts. These pieces sit neatly alongside classic collegiate items such as the Varsity Jacket and a considered coach jacket in the form of the Sunoco Jacket.

The outerwear is complemented with an exceptional selection of tees, hoods and sweats which adds a solid backbone to the collection. These Neighborhood staples are enhanced with a selection of contemporary accessories such as the zebra camo print Ball Hat and the overdyed Market Tote Bag as well as a celebratory 20th anniversary magazine in collaboration with Japanese-publication GRIND Magazine.

WTAPS – ‘Youthful Dayz’ November 2014 Drop

October 30th, 2014

The latest drop from Japanese-imprint WTAPS has arrived at END. and, as you’d expect, the collection does not disappoint with its infectious mix of reappropriated military and Americana styles.

Now in its 29th season the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, dubbed ‘Youthful Dayz’, faithfully abides by their ever-present motto of ‘Placing things where they should be’, with each piece rarely straying away from their source of inspiration.

This is not to say that designer Tetsu Nishiyama has not stamped his marque across the collection, infact each piece is undoubtedly WTAPS whether it be the military flight jacket informed design of the MA-1 Jacket with authentic safety lining offset by classic branded decals or the rugged Americana-inspired shirting range, such as the Union 01 Shirt, which would look as in place in Rockies as it would in Regents Park.

The highlight and the backbone of the collection is undoubtedly the extensive range of tees and jersey that are constructed to Nishiyama’s exacting standards. Collection staples such as the Heraldry, Crossbones and Desert Storm tees are complemented by jersey pieces such the Hellweek and Design 01 efforts.

The November 2014 drop is rounded off with a plethora of precisely executed accessories such as heavy gauge socks, classic backpacks, intricate wallets, Scottish Yarn-constructed beanies and a collaborative effort with premier cap manufacturer Ebbets Field Flannels.
