By Nincompoop Capacity / Graphics by Made with Japan

Hashio from Nicompoop Capacity just sent us some pictures from their spring/summer lineup. Nincompoop is a indie street fashion brand based in Tokyo. If you would like to know more about these guys, you can read an interview HERE.

“Our theme from Spring/Summer is “27.” The reasons it’s 27 is because I will be 27 this year.

Also, Kurt Cobain, Jimmy Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Jim Morrison, Shannon Hoon, Jeff Buckley, and  Ozaki Yutaka all left this world at the same age of 27. I’m wondering if something will happen to me this year…. ” -Hashio

Nincompoop Capacityの春夏のテーマは『27』です。理由は単純に今年で27歳だから。

それと、カートコバーン、ジミーヘンドリクス、ジャニス・ジョプリン、ジム・モリソン、シャノン・フーン、ジェフ・バックリィ、尾崎豊が自分と同じ歳で死んでるので、27歳って何かあるのかな・・・って意味で27にしました。

インタビュー - NINCOMPOOP CAPACITY

npc_interview_top

While I was in Japan this fall, I met with Japanese designers and other cool people who have influence on youth-culture of Japan today. I interviewed these people with the goal to introduce their work while at the same time, to get a more personal view of them as individuals. I also asked them to share their thoughts on various topics about Japan. My heart was filled with appreciation as these people were kind enough to take time out of their super busy schedules to make it happen.

The first people I met was Hashio and Take from Nincompoop Capacity. Nincompoop Capacity is a underground U.K. punk influenced fashion brand from Tokyo, with their original store in Koenji and their newer second store in the backstreets of Harajuku. Nincompoop design and make the clothing for their brand themselves and sell a wide range of original, one-off remakes, and vintage clothing.

2010年の秋、日本でかっこいい事をしている人達、主にデザイナーやモデルさんをインタビューさせて頂きました。Made with Japanのインタビューの目的は世界に彼らの作品や仕事を紹介するだけでわなく、個人の考えやフィロソフィーの事を話すこと。その他、「日本」について様々なトピックを語ります。皆めちゃくちゃ忙しいスケジュールの中、インタビューさせて頂く時間を作ってくれました。一人一人に対しての感謝の気持ちと会えた喜びで胸がいっぱいになりました。本当にありがとう。

東京に着いた一週間目に会ってくれたのは高円寺と原宿でオリジナル作、リメーク作、古着をショップに並べている「Nincompoop Capacity」のオーナー兼デザイナー、はしおーさんとタケさんでした。Nincompoop CapacityはU.K.パンク乗りのストリートブランドです。
