Takahiro Miyashita’s announcement last year that he would close the doors on his hugely successful label Number (N)ine was met with a lot of rumour and a lot of dissapointment. The recent release of a collaboration with Converse led us to believe that as some rumours suggested it was merely a break for the Japanese designer. Whatever the case maybe, we’re happy to announce that Miyashita is teaming up with Kazuki Kuraishi and Levis to create a new diffusion line for the denim company. Similar in its process to Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Fenom line, we expect, but with the Number (N)ine man behind the label, Left Handed, we can expect a vintage american theme to the collection, when its launched today in Tokyo.
