The launch installation of TAIGA TAKAHASHI that we announced the other day. It will be held at the same time as the start at our store. Originally, other stores in Japan started at the beginning of July, but we will delay it by more than a month and start from this timing. As announced the other day, it will be held for a limited time from August 14th (Sat) to 22nd (Sun). However, this is not the only time TAIGA TAKAHASHI clothes will be available. However, we do not stock a lot of TAIGA TAKAHASHI clothes, so as soon as we run out, we will stop handling them at our store for the debut season. So, today I would like to introduce the TAIGA TAKAHASHI collection. It is a collection that has the potential to become archaeological objects of the future, even though they are relics of the past. Normally, fabric is made using threads that already exist, but the stage before the fabric is the thread. Mr. Takahashi, a designer and an "archaeologist", wanted to create something unique from that "thread", such as original thread fabrics and original metal parts attached to clothes other than zippers. A lot of clothes packed in a very rich one. One of the symbols of the brand is the dyeing technique that has been used since ancient times in Japan. Natural dyeing that can produce very deep shades by dyeing with non-chemical substances that exist in nature. However, there was a time when the term “natural dyeing” did not exist in the past, and today it has become a word that includes the element of “rarity” that was born with the advent of chemical dyes. At TAIGA TAKAHASHI, it's amazing because of its "rarity". I'm not doing it just because I'm doing it, but I'm doing it to pass on the techniques that exist in Japan through TAIGA TAKAHASHI's clothes 100 years from now. One of them is the "mud dyeing" that exists in Amami Oshima, Kagoshima Prefecture. I wonder if it was a tech tree? After the plant is boiled and soaked in it, it is dyed with the "mud" that sinks in the rice paddy. and washed away in the river. By repeating this, it is possible to create a "unique black" that only "mud dyeing" can create. What's more, the captivating colors show their true value not only when they are brand new, but also after many years of use. This is unique to Japan, which has a long history of wabi-sabi. A beautiful dyeing technique unique to Japan, where old things are good, "not only the color but also the work". There are also some clothes made with this mud dye. The rest is "plant dyeing". The color will change depending on what kind of plant you use. Mud-dyed and plant-dyed colors are good at the beginning, but it is often said that the color change is beautiful as you use it. That is also an essential element of TAIGA TAKAHASHI clothes. Lot.603 Sweat Shirt material _ ORGANIC COTTON 100% color_DOUBLE MUD DYED BROWN size_38(M) This is the mud-dyed sweatshirt that I mentioned earlier. I'm hesitant to say it because it's a word that seems to have run out, but it's "100% organic cotton", "loop-knit", and "round body" undyed sweatshirt with garment dye. It has a T-shaped shape with no shoulder slope. the front too back too. The neck has a double-sided V gusset. No matter how you look at it, it's based on a 1940s American sweatshirt. It's hard at first because it's product dyed, but once you start wearing it, I think good things are waiting for you. This is a sweatshirt type, but there is also a pullover type Hooded Sweat Shirt. Lot.402 CC41 Coat material _ ORGANIC COTTON 100% color_DOUBLE MUD DYED BROWN size_38(M),40(L) This is also a coat based on a 1940s British-made garment-dyed mud-dyed coat. It is a single raglan sleeve that is unique to British classical coats, but it is not just a thick arm that is often seen in this kind of thing, but it is a splendid shape that the arm shape is effective toward the cuff. The front body is designed to be small, while the back body is designed to be large, which is quite good. The fabric is also 100% organic cotton, but the designer has a left twill fabric that reproduces the fabric used by the American military during World War I in the 1910s in TAIGA TAKAHASHI's style. Of course, the loom that weaves the fabric is also a shuttle loom with a selvedge. This coat is also made of stiff fabric like the sweatshirt I mentioned earlier, but this one seems to have a clearer change. It's brand new and already has a little color unevenness, but that makes me look forward to a change. The outer material is 100% cotton, but the lining has a strange blend. Lot.101 Open Collar Shirt material _ ORGANIC COTTON 100% color_NATURAL DYED LOGWOOD GRAY size_15(M),16(L) This is based on a 1950s USA open collar shirt. Gray left twill dyed with logwood. It's Aya from 2/1. By the way, the coat I mentioned earlier is the left twill of the 3/1 twill. Even with the same organic cotton twill weave, the design changes depending on the clothes. Also, this is a fabric dye, not a product dye. Open collar with two-hole buttons and both chest pockets with flaps. By the way, the button is a shell button made by a brand that is not generally distributed. The back yoke has side gathers rather than side pleats. Rounded cuffs with no edge stitching, and a continuous sword rag opening piping treatment on the same ground. Like the collar, the stitches are not exposed, so the chest pocket flap looks like it's floating. The pocket body and the flap are separate parts. The cuffs also have gathers. If you look at it like this, it's a very finely crafted shirt. A shell button with a soft and warm glow. Based on shirts from the 50's, Aloha shirts are at their peak these days. However, the buttons are thicker and larger than Hawaiian shirts. It goes very well with the logwood coloring. Selvage is placed on the end of the facing where the edge of the fabric comes. I don't know much about photos. Overall, the sewing of this shirt is a narrow winding seam. I remember that there were many such shirts in the 1950s. But the width of the winding stitch is also great, but the pitch is amazing. Dramatically thin and delicate winding sewing specifications. The same fine pitch for the sleeves. Since it is an open collar shirt, there is no base collar, but it has a mysterious design with stitches on the base collar as if it were a moon waist. I've never seen a part like this on old clothes, so it's a strange specification. this. This shirt is available in undyed ivory as well as this logwood gray. This shirt is designed to be slightly larger than other TAIGA TAKAHASHI clothes. Lot.302 DB Sack Suits material _ ORGANIC COTTON 100% color _ NATURAL DYED WALNUT BEIGE size_38(M) And this is a really old-looking jacket. I haven't seen an old style sack suit like this in a long time. A belt is sewn on to shape the waist, and a total of 4 tucks and large action pleats on the center back. The shoulder line between the front and back is also shifted backwards. Round pleated pockets at peak lapels. This jacket is based on a 1920s American sack suit. Like the CC41 Coat, the fabric is a 3/1 left twill dyed with vegetable dyes. The button is also a nut button that has been dyed with plants to match the body fabric. Partly because it's dyed with plants, this coloring gives it a unique withered mood. It's new, but it looks like it's been around for a long time. It's also called a sack suit. The cuffs are also old style, which is rarely seen in recent years. The waist pocket is also a round type with action pleats. Half lining jacket with unlined back. For that reason, the back processing is done properly, and the piping is working at full capacity. All of TAIGA TAKAHASHI's clothes have something in common, but they go into great detail right down to the back. See the real thing and check it out. Lot.701 Denim jacket material _ ORGANIC COTTON 100% color_RAW INDIGO size_36(S),38(M),40(L) A denim jacket based on store brand items from the 1940s, not the classic Levi's. Instead of the denim that you can find anywhere, we use left-hand twill denim that was originally created with the brand's own design of yarn and aiming for a balance that creates unevenness from the spinning that creates the yarn. Because the denim warp and weft yarns that make up the fabric are not well-balanced, the appearance of the weft yarns is unique from the front, rather than a sticky impression, and it is clearly different from the atmosphere of modern denim. can be detected instantly. And the leather patch attached to the inside is made of horse leather that has been mud-dyed in Amami Oshima. If anything, it's close to Levi's 2nd if you compare it to the royal road, but the stitching of the pleats in the center and the snap button on the front are completely different. Snap button cuffs. This distinctive snap is reminiscent of the Art Deco era. This snap button is also original production. Basically, we make all of the accessories one by one, but by making all of those things ourselves, we can create 100% clothes that the brand is aiming for. This kind of detail is often not possible for brands that make replicas. Also, yes. It looks like one color, but the stitching is actually orange and yellow. These days, I don't really use different colors for sewing threads, but by changing the color of the stitches depending on the part, the appearance of the clothes can be completely changed. Selvage is everywhere on the inside of the back cover. It is a specification that is properly processed by folding the hem edge properly and putting it inside. This may be rare for denim jackets. Buckle back with servicing on the back. It's a denim jacket made by an archaeologist. Needle cinch, of course. Original specifications. The sleeves are pretty straight. This is rare for denim jackets, but in a photo the designer saw in an old document, there was a man wearing a denim jacket with an abnormally cut shoulder line. TAIGA TAKAHASHI's original pattern has been created to create a unique style in which the shoulders look unique and the fabric accumulates in the armholes. Therefore, although the sleeves are almost straight like a Japanese kimono, I aim to create a unique shoulder style by adding a curved upper body to the straight line. this. However, the miracle sleeve that the momentum is firmly secured. The way of thinking of such a pattern also appears to be the appearance of the mode. Also, another very peculiar thing is the winding seam of this two-piece sleeve. Usually, denim jackets are called two-piece sleeves, and the sleeves are formed with two parts to ensure the amount of exercise. So, at that time, I do the winding stitch, but due to the nature of the winding stitching method, one of the fabrics to be joined will always be in a high position, and the other will be in a low position. With that in mind, it's only natural for all the G jackets I've seen so far to have the seams on both ends of the thin two-sleeve part raised, and the other lowered. was. However, in this denim jacket, both ends of the smaller part of the two sleeves are in a low position. The first time I saw. Maybe vintage or something? This means that after sewing one side with a winding stitch, it is turned upside down and the other side is wound from the opposite direction. This is what we must aim for. It could be a valuable archaeological resource. 100 years later. There is no shrinkage because it is shrink-proof. Although it is rigid, it is relatively light ounce, so it is not bulky. However, it's not the "G-Jean style" light mood that is common these days, so I think it's more like a denim jacket that can be picked up by people who like original vintage. Lot.702 Denim Trousers material _ ORGANIC COTTON 100% color_RAW INDIGO size_30(S),32(M),34(L) These pants are made from the same original left twill denim. It also comes with a belt loop, but the exposed rivets with a cinch back, the unevenness of the denim, and the color scheme of the sewing thread give it a rather old-fashioned feel. Mud-dyed horse leather patch similar to denim jacket. It's not banzai. Exposed rivets on the back and front pocket openings. The quinch stitch on the side is longer than the COMOLI jeans introduced the other day, as it is based on an older version. Needle cinch, of course. and Offset center loop. The front top button is an original snap button, and of course there is a middle-high belt loop with a raised center. There is no V-station on the front, it is a zipper front, but there is a U-shaped closure at the end of the zipper. You can see that the specification is a mixture of various elements. It's still a brand new rigid, so it's that, but I'm sure it will bring a tremendous atmosphere to the point where you use it from here. This feeling has a lot of potential. As with the waist pocket of the denim jacket, the double-stitched corner of the pocket has an adjustment in the number of stitches to match the difference between the inside and outside of the double needle. I don't see this very often these days. It's pretty detailed. There are many types of jeans in the world, but these are jeans that you can really feel the meaning that TAIGA TAKAHASHI creates. The chain on the hem is alive and well on the white selvedge. You can also expect undulating puckering from here. Also, I think you'll see other variations such as T-shirts, vests, sweaters, trousers, and knit hats. And during the period, we will prepare novelties for the first 10 people who purchased. In addition, the current situation is that the coronavirus is raging again, so we will be very careful of infection and will hold the event after taking proper preventive measures. As always, in addition to wearing masks, ventilation, and disinfecting hands, we thoroughly disinfect credit card terminals and doorknobs that customers can touch, and operate in a state where we have removed as many anxiety factors as possible. I will. We are waiting for you to visit us on the 14th (Sat).
