Following a three-way collaboration earlier this year with Thinc Project, Ron Herman and DESCENDANT reconnect for another limited capsule. DESCENDANT, led by WTAPS founder Tetsu Nishiyama, first began working with California-born specialty store Ron Herman in 2015 and is now the only partner to develop exclusive lines with the retailer.
“When we create exclusive items, we often request what we want. In the sense of understanding and borrowing the brand’s power to be a partner, that’s how we make the items that suit Ron Herman’s customers. However, in the case of DESCENDANT, we have nothing to worry about, and it is the only brand we don’t need to place specific requests. Whatever Mr.Nishiyama creates, I know they are already suitable for Ron Herman to be sold at the store,” Ron Herman’s men’s director Yasuhiro Suzuki said in an interview.
Celebrating the 5th anniversary of Ron Herman’s Yokohama store is a black monochrome varsity jacket featuring leather sleeves and a white “D” logo applique incorporating DESCENDANT’s arrow motif. Interiors are dressed in diamond-stitched quilted nylon and branded fabric tags are secured on the side pockets and bottom hem. Additional pieces include heavy Turkish cotton hoodies and sweatpants featuring similar “D” logo branding and co-branded tags.
The DESCENDANT x Ron Herman hoodies and pants will be sold at DESCENDANT’s online store and dealers while the varsity jacket will be sold as a store-exclusive item at Ron Herman’s Yokohama store.
