ARCHIVE STYLING Vol.29
Archive Fashion Newly Defined by Stylist Shotaro Yamaguchi
The category of items we call ‘Archive items’ can be enjoyed in two distinct ways. The first buying and wearing items that have been carefully selected and survived the passing of time to become known as ‘archive items’. The second is that because of course not all items are guaranteed to become archive items, you can develop your own sense of beauty by selecting just those items which have kept their value throughout the years. Perhaps in several decades, items like the shirts by the brand NAMACHEKO which started only in 2017, or the leather vest from the 2014/S collection by COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS, or even the sweat pants by PALACE will have found their own position as archive items. When you look at items one by one from such a standpoint, fashion as a whole and matching your outfit on a day to day basis will become much more enjoyable.
