top 5 japanese brands you hate and why

Recommended Posts

Bingo, yeah, Bape is originaly based on Paul Frank, congratulations you figured out the key to the holy grail of streetwear, everything goes back to Paul Frank. Nigo has a bunker 3 kilometers under Tokyo with a complete mint collection of everything Paul Frank has ever done. If you go there now and say you have the key then you will be frozen in carbinate and be immortalised as part of Nigo`s collection and therefore as part of streetwear culture forever.

Nigo is a smart businessman then. copy a successful clothing line into your own image. every lazy person been doing that but i admire it when its done right, like the many jap levi repro companies. something makes it more unique when the japanese copy tho. as for bape, i never liked paul frank in the first place so why would i like bape?

Remember when dj honda had a retail store in Soho. I don't think anybody ever went there. Biggest complete waste of money.

Hey - I snapped up a 12" for $6 or something once ...

Just a question...

if you were Paul Frank, do you feel honored that you established a new fashion culture or disrespected that everyone is making money by twisting and repacking your ideas?

I'm still new when comes to streetwear, so forgive me if I asked a noobish question.

if interested here a link about Nigo

The only ones that I'd still consider wearing would probably be the border tee shirts by cdg play. The one with the red alien symbol on the chest. The rest is just too colorful and candy like. And the shirts too big for my small frame, with the usual patches with ordinary fabrics, its just doesnt look couture to me. Sorry, j:(

cdg homme plus hasnt been too colorful. i assume you've been looking at too much j.w.

cdg shirt and man has all kinds of colorways.

play (one with heart) is the lowest on the foodchain of the cdg house. i'd suggest re-evaluating liking that shit. only hongkongers and peasants wear that.

just trying to help....

thank you for the enlightenment, j san!

i'll try to see and try to understand it a bit better the next time around.

And what bout the collab with junya? is that shit any good?

I like julius, viridi anne. Those reminds me of the japanoism interpretation of rick owens and ann dem. There are some nice stuffs from n(n) but the rest are a bit played out too.

Also is undercoverism any good? I couldnt understand their direction.

n. hoolywood are just a cheaper japanese version of martin margiela.

no, bootlegs. I'm asking serious questions.

Yes, Margiela is more expensive than n. hoolywood. Next time, please do your research before saying something. It just shows that you have a low credibility.

So does your red bar of shame, as long as we're talking street cred here.

Argh. Both labels have various diffusion lines, so would everyone get on the same damn page.

It just shows that you have a low credibility.

Jesus, Aniki, would you please shut up.
