Introducing Neighborhood to the Feature Roster
Introducing Neighborhood to the Feature roster.
Founded by Shinsuke Takizawa in 1994, Neighborhood is a Japanese streetwear brand with the mission to “Craft with Pride.” Neighborhood draws its inspiration from motorcycle apparel while combining punk culture and military-inspired workwear. Neighborhood is fueled by authentic Japanese culture mixed with a modern contemporary finish. Since its launch, Neighborhood has transformed the fashion industry and has become one of the leading brands in modern contemporary streetwear.
Takizawa was influenced at an early age by London’s punk rock subculture when he was an exchange student in the early 1980s. After returning to Japan, Takizawa joined “Major Force,” a hip-hop record label found in Japan. After 8 years of being in the record label industry and holding the lead role as a director, he resigned to launch his own streetwear brand, Neighborhood, that draws inspiration from all his past experiences from London to working in the hip hop industry.
Being one of the most influential Japanese brands to date, we are proud to present you with Neighborhood’s spring/summer delivery ranging from ready to wear, graphics and accessories.
