Japanese design visionary Takahiro Miyashita originally rose to prominence as the founder of avant-garde cult label Number (N)ine. Parting ways with the brand in 2009, Miyashita went on to introduce a fashion project that would more accurately reflect his personal style: TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist.
Having granted himself the freedom to pursue his unique vision unhindered, he has continued as the brand’s sole designer since its launch in 2010. Accordingly, a new sense of sophistication has modulated the youthful rock n’ roll rebellion that characterized his former brand. Taking cues from musicians and Western Americana, Miyashita’s multilayered, somber-hued collections often feature contrasting proportions, asymmetric styling, and ever-evolving conceptual themes. Close-fitting jackets and trousers are tailored to an intentionally dandified degree, while military-inspired outerwear and accessories bring grounded balance and utilitarian appeal to refined wardrobe staples.
