As NIGO, the trailblazing streetwear designer behind A Bathing Ape, readies his newest venture, Human Made, to be sold overseas for the first time, NOWNESS accompanied him on a shopping trip to London's Vintage Showroom. During the course of the interview, Nigo reveals that the vintage-inspired Human Made brand will feature pre-1950 Americana, with everything based on pieces from his own collection. In stark contrast to the BAPE aesthetic, Nigo says he's been a vintage enthusiast since his teenage years, his first piece a Levi's Type 2 jacket purchased at age 15 that he owns to this day.
