While staying at the same job for years can mean security, a pension, and a sense of belonging, it can also mean spending every day watching Pat Sajak bully fat people into buying vowels that you never wanted to flip over in the first place, because you were supposed to be an actress! Sticking with it but nonetheless keeping it fresh, Neighborhood.
Celebrating 15 years of designing edgy but versatile streetwear, this Japanese designer continues in his tradition of melding outdoorsy, motorcycle, and military themes with a Spring/Summer collection of anniversary collaborative graphic tees, eclectic button downs, and light jackets. Bold cotton tees include the Pend, which dons two silkscreened gold chains adorned w/ crosses, keys, and St. Christopher pendants; a black tee featuring a bowler cap-wearing gent flushing himself down a toilet w/ the caption, "Goodbye Cruel World"; and the F**k Neighborhood, a white crewneck with square front graphic that figuratively gives the middle finger to the world by swearing at everything from parking meters and the phone company to landlords and girl scout cookies, excluding Samoas, of course, because they're delicious. Dressing it up above the waist, NTA unveils sweet button downs like the Flew Zip, a blue striped zip-up w/ a red/orange/blue patch of a man riding a horse that reads, "Holidays in the Sun"; the indigo denim, western-style D.C.P.U. work shirt replete with silver buttons, splattered paint, and multiple patches; and the Subversion, a blue striped long sleeve w/ faded graphics of Stalin and select words of wisdom like "Try Subversion" and "Never Trust a Hippie", despite the fact that they're delicious.
Rounding out the collection are a diverse array of lightweight jackets like the Rust, a black zip-up w/ two front pockets that open on both sides, as well as accessories like blue and purple plaid scarves and the red 100%-poly mesh-backed trucker hat emblazoned w/the words, "Cycle Fury" -- which sounds like a movie you would've co-starred in with Harrison Ford if only you could escape this clicking wheel o' misery!
