Previously known as General Research, …Research has emerged as one of the most influential brands from Japan to manage the fine line between reproduction and contemporary product. Setsumasa Kobayashi and his colleagues Sasaki and Ishii fill in the dots in the brands title high up in the mountains that surround tokyo.. So far we have seen collections entitled Prisoner research, News Boy Research, Riding Research, Naval Research, Hunting Jacket research and of course the regular winter collections of Mountain Research. For quality of manufacture and design all of these lines are completely unrivalled, setting a global precedent for detail and aesthetic that is often copied but never bettered. Clothes are produced in very limited numbers and are collected by fanatics all over the world. Once they are gone they are never repeated, some are evolved further into the in season spin off line 'Other colours' It's a complete privilege for us to be able to bring these collections to our store, still the only place in the world outside of Japan where you can see them for real.
