Though a relative late-comer to the bustling fashion scene of Tokyo’s Harajuku neighborhood, WHIZ Limited‘s LUMP Tokyo storefront quickly established itself among labels such as NEIGHBORHOOD, BAPE, Final Home, and others. This is largely thanks to its WHIZ Limited’s creative director Hiroaki Shitano, who successfully fused different design influences to the collection. Ahead of celebrating the store’s 10th anniversary, fellow designer Masaaki Homma and his brand mastermind JAPAN helped to design a collaborative varsity jacket. Much like the sportswear silhouettes both designers preferred, the varsity jacket is classic fare with Melton Wool body and premium leather sleeves. Embroidered on the front are both WHIZ and LUMP ensigns while promiantly on the jacket’s back is the iconic skull and crossbones label of mastermind JAPAN. Lined with insulation, the jacket comes in an all-black variant as well one with black body with sleeves in contrast white. Priced at ¥79,800 JPY (or $870 USD), both will be available starting this Saturday, February 9th, as exclusive LUMP Tokyo in Harajuku.
