Despite all his successes, his regarded vision of aesthetics, or his intricate ties within Japanese street fashion, WTAPS‘ fearless leader Tetsu Nishiyama is exceedingly modest. This admirable quality manifests itself in his latest interview with HAVEN Shop. Having been deeply entrenched, albeit instrumental in Japanese fashion, the interview takes readers through how a copy machine started Nishiyama’s became a vehicle for creativity, his close relationship with A Bathing Ape’s NIGO, his complete rejection of trends, and how a flagship store is necessarily more than a retail point for a brand. Read the full scale of Tetsu Nishiyama’s intriguing, inspirational views on HAVEN Shop’s blog.

WDSG recently released a new collection "WDSG Limited Edition 2013 Experimental Series" to arouse the awareness of the public to treasure the society we live in and be less wasteful on resources. Their design concept for the series is "Deconstruction", and indeed the key to this series is not just about decomposing of the materials but more so about "forming and deforming; deconstruction and reconstruction"
They have gathered military bags and vintage leather jackets from World War II, deconstructing them and rearranged the materials according to color and texture. All hardware such as buttons were touched up manually by hand in order to create the best vintage and rust effect.
As the original materials are not easy to gather and very limited in supply, we have produced items 7 sets of each style only including tailor vest, blazer, overall, railroad coat, trench coat & scarf. They are all numbered from 01 to 07 and thus it is a very unique and prestige collection.
Following from the last episode which explored the food truck industry, Subculture Club presents a behind-the-scenes mini-doc on the astronomical culture of coffee drinking. It’s said that 2000 hours of work is dedicated to delivering a cup of coffee from harvest to finish, which explains the passion felt by the coffee aficionados here in delivering the last step with tentative care, before handing over the sentimental brew to their customers. Here, we visit proud coffee roasters on the West coast who pair their sensibility with technical methods in roasting, in addition to getting some insight on why coffee matters to those at the likes of Handsome Coffee, LAMILL Coffee and Blue Bottle Coffee Co., who take great pride in delivering their craft to those visiting the sanctuary.
