Founded in 1995 and designed by Keizo Shimizu, CEO of NEPENTHES.
Needles was launched as a brand to project Shimizu's vision of over 30 years of experience in visiting and introducing products from around the world. In 2010, a new label - REBUILD by NEEDLES - was added to the collection, focusing on the concept of clothing that was once mass-produced and left aimless, being rebuilt.More
With his experience at Nepenthes, Shimizu undertakes his design work with a retailer's perspective, to assemble customer-facing collections with a multitude of styles, while maintaining a sense of calculated selection. This stylistic mosaic offers diverse fabric assemblages that defy the rigidity and regressiveness of American menswear, adding a softness to Needles' cross-cultural collage.Less
