  • FW09 Number (N)ine Charles Peterson “Touch Me I’m Sick’ Mosh Pit Blazer

     

    Takahiro Miyashita, a high school burnout turned Japanese fashion designer, abruptly halted main label production in 2009. A depleting physical and mental state pushed the young creative to unwillingly resign from his emerging brand. Miyahsita went on to finalize two works—a capsule and full collection, before stepping away. However, unbeknownst to his current audience, the capsule collection would go down as a quintessential staple in the Number (N)ine umbrella.

    Working alongside American photographer Charles Peterson, Takahiro Miyashita assembled a collection like never before. Both infatuated with the allure of punk rock, Peterson documented the grunge scene using abstract methods to portray rebellious youth culture. Largely credited for his iconic stills of mosh-pits, crowd surfing and defiant ideology throughout the 90’s, the photos meshed brilliantly with Number (N)ine’s aesthetic. The creatives worked to captivate this movement in a physical form.

     

    Implementing a photo taken at Kitsap Court during Endfest ‘91, starring Mark Arm’s; Mudhoney, Peterson’s images of the chaotic moshpit truly encapsulated the emerging grunge scene. As a result, the designer crafted an assortment of wearable extremities as a nod to his roots in punk rock. Each of which feature the renown mosh pit photography, the blazer exhibited has since projected shockwaves through the archival community.

     

    Featuring a full interweaved graphic, silk liner and eye slit pockets, this blazer is a testament to modern design. Tailored to seamlessly harmonize as one photo, the printing method is a work of art in itself. Takahiro Miyashita alters every detail, printing atop each button in order to preserve the graphic and harmonize with the gorgeous taper, shoulder and precisely cut collar. Missing a singular button on the left cuff, this item is in pristine condition with no other signs of wear, tagged as a size large. A piece that will go down as a representation of Takahiro Miyashita himself, retailing at a staggering $12,600.
