Japanese label NEIGHBORHOOD brings a new technical helmet for Spring/Summer 2013: the OWL VISOR/FCL-HELMET. Fashioned in the style of antique motorcycle silhouettes, this helmet takes a stylish approach to a traditionally utilitarian design. On the exterior, the OWL VISOR / FCL-HELMET takes a gold base, overlaid with a simple black cross. On the interior is a plush material, collaged with black and white animation design. A unique chinstrap leaves comfortable room for the ears, reducing weight on the head while securing the jaw in place. Look for the helmet on NEIGHBORHOOD’s web shop.
Japanese brand Neighborhood is back this season with a new website and along with that also presents for the first time an official digital collection lookbook for its Fall/Winter 2012 Collection. Highlighting stand out pieces from its new collection, a lookbook is always a great way of not only focussing on specific product, but more importantly the overall look and style of a brand and the way the brand imagines their clothing to be combined.
Neighborhood presents a nice range of solid outerwear for the new design and once again impresses with an incredible amount of detail on each one of their collection pieces. The accessories range is also great, including from more regular pieces, such as caps and bags, to more unique pieces, such as biker helmets.
This fabulously aged Zippo in olive drab is a convincing replica of the original naval Zippo lighter produced in 1941. Especially made for popular Japanese fashion streetwear brand NEIGHBORHOOD, the distressed lighter features 100% brass construction, a custom “NH” anchor decal on its front, anchor motif on the side, and a stenciled carpe diem message across the back. Made in the USA, this highly limited Zippo is now available at End Clothing for £145 (approximately $234 USD).
