Richardson's Collaboration With Mysterious Japanese Label UNUSED Flips Punk Staples

Richardson‘s move to Japan has inspired a few partnerships with some of the country’s most in-demand labels, the latest of which is anonymous design collective UNUSED. Despite being one of Japan’s most popular local labels (and high-profile support from A$AP Rocky), UNUSED’s designer remains unknown — of course, their tastes are well-known across the country, and mesh well with Richardson’s sleazy aesthetic.

The duo have joined for a collection that channels their mutual love for punk subcultures, blending tartan plaid, bondage detailing and furry mohair sweaters into a cohesive cold weather offering. Baggy bomber jackets and matching pants feature weighty wool and two styles of the all-over pattern — each sourced from the Abraham Moon and Sons mill — while the cardigans opt for either monochrome branding or statement color-blocking. These are styled atop another UNUSED staple, weighty Kindermann Engineered Corduroy trousers that offer a few extra pockets for additional storage. Rounding out the selection is a set of cozy branded socks.

Richardson most recently partnered with The Spike NYC for co-branded layering pieces.
