Take an impromptu survey of the current men’s fashion market in Japan, one name will most likely appear – Tomohiro Konno of NEXUSVII. A graduate of the prestigious Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo, Konno not only supervises the daily operation of NEXUSVII, but still finds time to be a design consultant for Stussy Japan and OriginalFake. The demand for the young designer is such because Konno’s intrinsic understanding of fabrics, especially new ones, and their applications. One example is this light down jacket for NEXUSVII’ fall/winter collection. While the form is somewhat of a standard in comparison to others on the market, Konno was able to applied Rip Stop Denim, not the typical rip stop nylon, to the jacket’s outershell. The jacket is not only more resilient than most, its appearance is quite exceptional as well. NEXUSVII Rip-Stop Denim Down Jacket is currently available at retailer nano universe locations across Japan.
