Denim cutwork T-shirt, ¥50,600


Tokyo brand 45R thinks up and creates items that are yet to exist. The concept, which it calls “nai monozukuri,” requires the brand to master many arts and techniques, as it makes everything from scratch. One of its specialties is indigo dyeing, which it uses in denim items like this T-shirt with gorgeous cutwork sleeves. The fabric, soft and pleasant against the skin, retains the dry touch of authentic denim and becomes more beautifully nuanced with time.
