Needles have always sought to expand the notion of streetwear by looking to the past. The Japanese label’s new collection builds on their recent fascination with street styles from 1960’s Britain, namely the stylistic codes of the Mods and Rockers subcultures. With a touch of 70s-inspired psychedelia, Needles bring these influences into the contemporary streetwear landscape with a self-assurance that has become instantly recognisable.
In recent years, the Rebuild by Needles collection has gained significant attention. Implementing a variety of methods, each style in the collection uses recycling processes to play with notions of addition, replacement, necessity, and modification. Though employing a familiar deconstructive gesture, the Rebuild by Needles series explodes the myth that deconstruction is synonymous with minimalism, with different checked patterns clashing in a flurry of maximalist joy.
The Needles Rebuild by Needles 7 Cuts Shirt is the marquee piece of the label’s Rebuild collection, with each garment a unique garment constructed from cross-section pieces of seven flannel shirts. This Needles Rebuild by Needles 7 Cuts Shirt (4) is size XL.
