Based solely on American pop culture from the 1960s and '70s, designer Nobuhiko Kitamura creates each piece of Hysteric Glamour with US pop culture references that influenced him as a child. From comic books, porno, cars, and artists, since 1984 Kitamura has created clothing that is quintessential rock 'n roll, and he fulfilled every role required to build it into the large chain store that it is today. Hysteric Glamour has recently expanded into a full line of apparel, and it remains as sought-after as the original t-shirts.
