Through the ability of Fujiwara Hiroshi, the discontinued archive is reprinted and upgraded
FRAGMENT DESIGN, which has been loved by Hiroshi Fujiwara himself for many years and regularly releases a collaboration, release the sixth collaboration with the British JOHN SMEDLEY. The collaboration will be released on October 28, 2022. SEQUEL also joined together to form a three-party collaboration lineup this time.
The blueprint this time is Fujiwara Hiroshi's personal favorite: JOHN SMEDLEY's high-count cotton crewneck sweater made by sea island cotton. This single product, which is originally discontinued as the JOHN SMEDLEY Archive, has been reprinted and upgraded by Hiroshi Fujiwara, and it also reflects Hiroshi’s flavor.
In terms of details, the threaded edges of the neckline and the size details of the neckline have been fine-tuned, and they are also quite temperamental when used alone. In terms of design, the simple and low-key Clean Design is full of cloth, making it stand out from the regular JOHN SMEDLEY. We can see this from the matching collar and cuffs, SEQUEL embroidery on the chest, and the personal label embroidered on the back that can be handwritten.
The special version of the Logo that appeared in this collaboration is also specially selected from the Archive Logo of JOHN SMEDLEY, and the rarity is really extraordinary.
