Alpha Shadows


With 15 years at Nepenthes designing the Purple Label under his belt Takumi Oomura founded Niche. After filling his head with Argentine culture, he transferred this passion into his first collection in 2007. You’ll still clock these influences today, alongside references to the practicalness of vintage workwear and military attire. Expect to discover stubby chambrays, floral patterns and micro-corduroys crafted into easy fitting casual classics with discoverable details. Recent collections have pumped up the modernity via tab collar shirting, crew neck cardigans and furry ‘Peluche Delgado pants with Mokomoko texture’ – which in English, probably means ‘teddy bear trousers’.
