Designer Ryo Ishikawa formed VANQUISH in 2004 with the goal “To embody masculine ideal.” Today, the brand is on the catwalks of Tokyo Fashion week and has had successful collaborations with Western brands such as PUMA, Converse, Nike and Hurley.
VANQUISH lets their great range of clothes do the talking. The style and fit of Japanese menswear can be quite different than western men’s fashion, making for a daunting cross-cultural purchasing decision. But VANQUISH is an easy “gateway fashion” to transition from Western to Japanese styles. Their oversized graphic and printed tees, animal and checked printed shirts, and Japanese-embellished bomber jackets go great with your pre-existing wardrobe or as a start for a whole new outfit. VANQUISH also has a wide range of men’s accessories such as belts, bracelets, rings, and sunglasses. The material of the clothes makes them great for everyday wear, using quality jersey cottons, soft denims, sports fleece, and leather.
As to be expected for a Shibuya 109 Men’s shop, the prices are mid- to high-range prices. Overall, VANQUISH is a great brand for men who like the simple and stylish without having to go through the hassle of figuring out what is currently “in” or “out.” VANQUISH is an easy brand to look good in. Check them out on your next shopping trip to Shibuya!
