Number (N)ine SS/AW2003 Destroyed Grunge Sweater

375.00

2003’s “Touch Me I’m Sick” was a wry and morbid double-entendre, a reference to both the classic 1998 Mudhoney track, and to Takahiro’s declining physical state, which prevented him from undertaking the typically rigorous schedule required to produce two collections in a year. Presented atop a dimly-lit yet grandiose staircase furnished with an overwrought floral carpet that conjured memories of a once-grand hotel in decline, the looks were a open love letter to Seattle’s 90s grunge scene. Takahiro created exact reproductions of pieces worn by Kurt Cobain, including the tragic icon’s era-defining striped mohair sweater and velvet patched denim.

The body of this knit is more intricate than it perhaps appears at first glance. Though a cursory look may make it to be one of countless chunky grunge-era sweaters, the cable knit seams are meticulously criss-crossed and patched together, giving it an irregular texture and thickness throughout. 

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.
