In the early spring of 2020, In the form of an exclusive capsule to be held at Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo by way of the label’s shop-in-shop at the retailer. Daiki Suzuki, the head designer of Engineered Garments, asked me personally to create the graphic tees, hoodies, and Art posters for this capsule show. It was available at its dedicated space inside Isetan Shinjuku.
The short film titled "CITY NO END" was also released, accompanying the capsule.
