BPMW has been playing home to some of Japan’s coolest under the radar brands. For the past week, Cav Empt & HEADPORTER have be camping out in our showroom and although their stint here is done, we decided to blow up their spot a little.
Cav Empt, also known as C.E. is a majorly cool street wear label introduced by Sk8thing, the graphic king behind iconic images featured on A Bathing Ape, HUMAN MADE, BBC & Ice Cream Clothing. Between Sk8thing and Toby Feltwell, the ex Cheif of Staff at NOWHERE Co. Ltd., the two come together to create a high meets low feel. The brand works heavily off their supreme ability to understand the importance of exclusivity–one of the reasons that BPMW only houses the label for a short one week per season. Exclusivity aside, this shit is crazy cool, and we think you should be in the know.
HEADPORTER, established in 1998, designs and creates some dope original quality products. All pieces in the label are manufactured by Yoshida Kaban–the owner of the classic “PORTER” brand, and we can personally attest to the unreal clothing and bags the brand puts out.
