Number (N)ine Hybrid Blazer - AW05 “The High Streets”
by Takahiro Miyashita
Number (N)ine’s Autumn Winter 2005 “The High Streets” collection projected a signal of shift for Takahiro Miyashita’s design career. Whereas up to this point, Miyashita derived most of his inspiration from Western, namely American, influence, he would soon opt for more grunge aesthetics. The shift in design philosophy is quite evident in “The High Streets,” as the consumer is witnessing a transformation of fabrics right before their eyes. Grunge, goth, and military undertones are all present within each of the garments. This specific “hybrid” jacket features a traditional blazer upper and a blue check flannel lower which are connected at the torso. The sleeves of the jacket are pulled from a heather gray hoodie, with the left arm featuring a vintage military cargo strap pocket. Together, these pieces come to form a complete garment which effortlessly exemplifies “The High Streets,” and its signaling of change.
