To commemorate their second issue, SPADE teamed up with http://the-soloist.net/”>TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloIst and http://undercoverism.com/”>UNDERCOVER for a collaboration. As the main feature of the issue is on http://freshnessmag.com/tag/takahiro-miyashita/”>Takahiro Miyashita and his brand, a special capsule collection was produced. http://freshnessmag.com/tag/undercover/”>UNDERCOVER was also invited due to http://blog.honeyee.com/jtakahashi/”>Jun Takahashi being a good friend of Miyashita, as evidenced in the recent http://freshnessmag.com/2012/01/17/undercover-openstrings-springsummer-2012-collection-video/”>openstrings video from UNDERCOVER where Miyashita was invited to play in the video.
The collection uses 14 white garments as blank canvases, printing monochromatic photos on top of it. These rare photos of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love were taken by acclaimed Japanese photographer http://kuboken.net/”>Kenji Kubo. Apart from the capsule collection, there is one t-shirt made for SPADE and one t-shirt made in conjunction with http://freshnessmag.com/tag/undercover/”>UNDERCOVER. The total of 16 pieces are currently available as pre-order at http://eyescream.jp/shop/”>EYESCREAM online shop and the delivery is scheduled for late April to May.
