“Today we received a letter (an actual letter, so you know it’s serious) from Number (N)ine. It started with this quote: “When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.” You guessed it: the Tokyo-based, Paris-showing men’s label launched 12 years ago by Takahiro Miya****a is closing. The fall ‘09 collection—portentously called A Closed Feeling—was the last. The letter went on to say “Over the last decade, Number (N)ine evolved, always forging ahead with a unique and potent vision, to emerge as one of the leading brands of Japan.” We agree with the sentiment. Number (N)ine will be (m)issed.”

Pretty confirmed. I kept the invite to the last show, now I guess I should get it framed..

I loved the last collection so much it feels like someone just died in my arms.

I guess that answers why the pieces presented in the collection were so elaborate they were guaranteed to be unaffordable.

Ugh, that's sad....it's established a small following even though it didn't get beyond the fringe. It is probably too "hipster"-oriented to reach a wider market, especially at such a price point.

I can't say I saw this coming... but this collection definitely gave off a very deep, very personal and very strong message- so much so that i don't feel surprised. it felt so somber even though he clearly put his all into it. I have to say if he's gonna go out - this was the way to do it. this collection was just so beautifully poetic; as if the man of this collection is wearing literally everything he has, on his sleeve (whole body), even down to his lonely hotel upholstery.
