However, not everything is as pretty as it looks. In the very beginning, Homma was in short of fashion-education and he worked at Yohji Yamamoto.
Out of the blue, during the Tokyo Fashion Show, mastermind Japan was presented to the public. We are not sure if this was anticipated or not, but his pieces just did not sell.
After attending SEHM exhibition in Paris, he was received with open arms. A circumstance that made him believe in everything he always stood for. He did just the right thing, harden and stiffen the brand’s natural posture and viewpoint.
Nevertheless, in 2013, Masaaki Homma decided to pause mastermind‘s season drops, however continuing to work in collaboration with brands that include Dover Street Market, adidas Originals, Stussy, Vans, G-Shock, BAPE and many others.
mastermind Japan currently has flagship stores in Tokyo, Osaka, and other Japanese cities.

Taking such project to a new audience and highlighting Japan’s fondness for all Americana styles, such piece displayed in the pictures offers an elegant iteration of a classic sportswear piece – the Varsity Jacket.
