4. Black Series – Kazuki Karaishi
“This is what happens when you drag the tech-infused Black Series, kicking and screaming through Ura-Harajuku. Here we meet Kazuki Karaishi, a design fiend that’s made his way through the netherworld of Fragment and VISVIM. Part 2 of his capsule collection sees the Mountain Light getting a rework, resulting in one of our favourite pieces to date.
It’s the little brother of the Mountain Jacket, with a pattern that allows for greater modification to the front. Here, Karaishi adds multiple cargo pockets, with all the Mil-Spec straps and clips you’d expect. Such a simple change creates an intimidating yet calculated silhouette, finished in the timeless olive/black colourway with tonal logo.”
