Needles is the brainchild of Keizo Shimizu, a household name in Japan, but little known stateside, even as his brand has grown in notoriety. Shimizu is also the founder of Nepenthes, the multi-brand powerhouse that Engineered Garments, among others, is a part of. Needles’ distinct point of view is so diverse it encompasses both interpretations of technical outdoor gear and remade patchwork vintage clothing. All of it is done with an eye for innovative construction techniques and underlying sophistication that shines through every piece, no matter how diverse they appear on the surface.
