Stepping from out of the shadows of his behemoth Bathing Ape empire, Nigo has been scaling things back lately with his intimate Human Made label recently opening its first Cold Coffee store in Shibuya. Inspired by his love of American vintage workwear, the Human Made collection is hand curated from pieces within Nigo's own private collection, with garments hand furnished for an authentic take on the craftsmanship of yesteryear. Classic Americana doesn't get much more iconic than the Chuck Taylor, which Nigo appropriates with the addition of military inspired side-entry zippers and a Vibram sole for modern creature comfort. Out March 10, thanks to Nigo and Eyescream for the preview.
