Fans of Takahiro Miyashita were crushed when it was announced that he was shutting down his beloved NUMBER (N)INE brand in 2009. But Miyashita was back as soon as AW10 with The Soloist, a collection that offered incredibly complex pieces in muted colors. Miyashita claims that the unisex clothes are really just designs that he wants to wear. "My lifestyle and my spirit are the key elements,” he told an interviewer about the launch of The Soloist. For fans of the designer, that's perfectly fine.
