Number (N)ine SS/AW2003 Destroyed Grunge Sweater


2003’s “Touch Me I’m Sick” was a wry and morbid double-entendre - a reference to both the 1998 Mudhoney track, and to Takahiro Miyashita’s weakened physical state, which prevented him from undertaking the 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 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.

This heavy weight cable knit features a relaxed, raglan shoulder cut with expert distressing that grows more mangled the closer you get to the hem. It’s a sterling reproduction of the types synonymous with the grunge scene, though it’s expert MIJ construction efficiently sets it apart from its thrift shop counterparts.
