Varsity Jacket (2008) "My Own Private Portland"
From the collection (2008) "My Own Private Portland"
Portland's Ace Hotel forms the latest inspiration for Japanese brand Number (N)ine's 2008 Fall collection. In a movement made popular by the likes of Kurt Cobain through the Northwestern corridor, this collection designed by Takahiro Miyashita possess a distinct grunge tone.
The runway show titled "My Own Private Portland" commenced with a voicemail message and made-in Portland Pendleton wool blankets for guests. The blankets emblazoned with imagery of the iconic and historical significant Thompson elk statute represent a throw back to America's past as well as a good showing of direction for this collection.
