Number (N)ine Autumn/Winter 2009 Collection

This is Takahiro Miyashita’s final menswear collection for Number (N)ine. This is Number (N)ine at it’s utmost splendor. It is really a legendary ending.

Yesterday I was able to brave the dreary Manhattan weather–fitting in retrospect–to visit the very last sample sale for the brand. Along both walls of the narrow boutique-turned-repository were cramped clothing racks clogged with bits and pieces from Miyashita’s past collections. It was mini purchasable retrospective. Although I only came away with a handful of pieces, it was gratifying just to be able to handle the coats, cloaks, and jackets that I’ve only gawked at through a computer screen during my time in Hawaii. I can’t explain it but there’s really something special about the reimagined Americana that the Japanese–Daiki, Junya, Rei, etc.–come up with; it’s all very magical. Takahiro’s contributions to that with Number (N)ine will be missed though the output of his new line, I’m sure, will garner just as much praise.
