Tokyo-based Dover Street Market and Switch Publishing celebrates individuals they were inspired by with a capsule titled “People of the Year.” According to a description of offerings, the collection is meant to highlight “eight people from various fields who have been inspiring for their work and accomplishments.”
Designed by Dover Street Market and Comme des Garçons‘s creative lead Rei Kawakubo, the capsule includes jackets, button-down shirts, t-shirts and tote bags detailed with graphics inspired by Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki, Japanese-born tennis champ Naomi Osaka, Japanese manga artist Kotobuki Shiriagari, British rapper Stormzy, Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima, Japanese poet Shuntarō Tanikawa, American music creative Patti Smith and Japanese musician Ichiro Yamaguchi.
The capsule is highlighted by a white Nike Blazer High (style code: DA5383-100) paying tribute to Osaka. First teased in August, the $410 sneaker‘s upper is detailed with an all-over Comme des Garçon and Naomi Osaka print and is also detailed with Osaka’s signature and the words “Home is where the heart is.”
Ranging in price from $180 for Osaka’s t-shirt up to $810 for a black Yamaguchi coat, the capsule is now available on shop.doverstreetmarket.com.
