In 1994, Shinsuke Takizawa started the brand Neighborhood in
Harajuku, Tokyo. A pioneer of the Ura-Hara movement and one of the
most influential streetwear figures in Japan.
Takizawa manages to effortlessly create a unique blend of the
rebellious spirit found in motorcycle culture, classical
militaristic aesthetics and vintage American workwear.
The concept of "basic clothing" is created by digesting unique
interpretations of elements from outdoor and traditional
Suggesting this lifestyle is the base for all products and
projects of which Neighborhood is involved with, and will always
live in the themes for the seasons.
With consistent collaborations and a growing list of outside
ventures, the heritage enthusiast continues to build on the
American staples that have influenced the Neighborhood brand.
