One of Japan’s best kept secrets, this countercultural outfit gained prominence through their politically charged affront to the fabrications of the mass media. The more intimate string to Nishiyama’s bow – one that is scarcely found outside of his home country – FPAR epitomises what it means to garner a truly cult following.
Reputed for bold outpourings in the form of slogan-emblazoned graphic tees, the muted colour scheme of the brand’s street-ready garb appropriately fuses military fatigue aesthetics with their inherently combative outlook, enlisting legions of adoring fans in the process.
This latest drop continues the brand’s output of highly wearable wardrobe staples, replete with purposeful protestations printed to the front and back of tees, sweats and hoodies. Unravel the abbreviation and you have ‘Forty Percents Against Rights’ – a statement of intent if ever there was one.
The 1993 Work Shirt embodies a crisp silhouette with printed typography, and if there was any doubt over whether this label means business, the utilitarian detailing and workwear styling leave little doubt.
Still not convinced? Show your allegiance to the FPARMY through a confluence of accessories that merge the sporting and the military, all perfectly embodying the brand’s philosophy through thought-provoking typography.
