A lot of musicians in Japan aren’t content just making music and occasionally performing live. Many delve into related activities like modeling, acting, and becoming one of Japan’s many talking heads on TV. Some, however, have delved into the world of fashion design. Reo Sano is one of these style-minded individuals. Hailing from GENERATIONS, Sano’s stepping off the stage for his next endeavor. Delving into the world of fashion, Reo Sano has teamed up with HUMAN MADE on a line of shirts and accessories that are coming exclusively to the famous Laforet in Harajuku for a limited time.
Reo Sano and HUMAN MADE have cooked up an entire assortment of cute goods with animal themes. This little dolphin friend seems to have made it on more individual pieces in the line than any other design. However, there’s also a Sasquatch-Bigfoot looking Popsicle and a Polar Bear who carrying the dolphin around after a hard day of swimming the ocean seas. I really like the visuals in the HUMAN MADE x Reo Sano collection; the bordering on pastel color palette gives the line a soft look that comes off as stylish without being edgy.
Hosted at ‘STORE by NIGO’ in Laforet, if you happen to be in Harajuku in the near future, you’ll have lots of options if you’re interested in this colelction. T-Shirts, bags, hats, and even a Gatchapon machine; whether you want to go all out or subtley rep Reo Sano you have choices. For Laforet, this collection is actually rather affordable with nothing costing more than 7,000 yen. Laforet often carries clothes that break the 100,000 yen barrier so I’m impressed with the relatively low pricing.
The HUMAN MADE x Reo Sano from GENERATIONS collaboration hits Laforet August 10 and will only be available till August 18.
