After leaving influential Japanese cult label Number (N)ine in 2009, designer Takahiro Miyashita wasted no time in founding his next venture, an eponymous label called TAKAHIROMIYASHITA The Soloist. As the name suggests, the brand’s output represents a completely unfettered execution of Miyashita’s personal style and creative vision.
The Soloist moniker proves to be an especially apt one, as the rock subculture influences of Miyashita’s previous work are infused with the sophistication of virtuoso tailoring, intricate attention to detail, and an innovative, progressive design sensibility.
The wool beanie is a fixture in any winter wardrobe, but rarely does it possess qualities that would make it such a highlight. This is no ordinary knit beanie to pull on as an afterthought, but a traditional, structured wool hat, leather band and all, in the shape of a modern beanie. Beyond style, beyond luxury, all the way into the realm of wearable art.
