More from Tokyo

Here’s some more pictures from my trip to Tokyo a couple weeks ago. It was my first trip of the season out there to see Neighborhood, White Mountaineering and Undercover.

Went to the White Mountaineering press office to meet up with Thomas to see the new AW12/13 collection.

Thomas, his WM hoodie he’s wearing is crazy looking! You can see him in the latest WM runway show as he doubles for one of their models as well.

Patterns, Patterns, Patterns!

Up next Undercover, this set of Jackets are unreal! Every single one is a must for any Undercover fan.

Next season’s knit’s are really well done as well. Check out the F-U-C-K knit pattern, bonkers!

Ordering stuff from a color card! Not easy!

“The Avant-garde Eats Shits and Likes It” …..Hahaha!

Had some time to walk around and decided to cut through the gates of Harajuku…..BAD IDEA! Like a zoo!

I went to Nigo’s ‘Curry Up’ joint for the first time.  Pretty damn good, more of a Indian style curry as opposed to Japanese style curry.

Ran into Tomohiro, Yusuke and the NEXUSVII crew on the way out. Guy on the ground was hilarious.

Neighborhood HQ

A day after the grand opening of the new shop I flew out to Tokyo direct from Toronto for a few quick exhibitions. In and out in 3 days! Up first was the Neighborhood exhibition. They just moved their headquarters to a new 4 story building in Shibuya. According to Shin they’ve been eagerly awaiting the completion of this building for almost 4 years. Damn! By far the nicest showroom in all of Tokyo. Here’s a small look inside…

It’s huge! Feels like a underground concrete bunker…

Kostas everywhere!

Neighborhood always does something crazy every season. Embroidered naked mermaid on the inside cuffs this time around….Crazy!

This is Shinsuke’s atelier that is setup on the top floor of the entire building. He’s got a ton of motorcycle memorabilia everywhere.

Yu Oka and Shinsuke

HAVEN Toronto Grand Opening Recap

Last Friday we held the grand opening party for the new HAVEN Toronto shop. Being from the West Coast the city of Toronto welcomed us with open arms, and it showed in the amazing turn out we had. Big ups to everyone who came through, the word has spread quickly and the response from the city has been overwhelming. We can’t even begin to express our sincere appreciation. Huge thanks goes out to the fine folks at Sapporo and Blue Giovello for sponsoring the event, as well as DJ Big Jacks and DJ Mattice for killing it all night long. Also not to be forgotten, the fellas at Inqmind for the coverage and showing love through out the whole process.
