N.Hoolywood has an immediately recognizable look that uses retro pieces to create contemporary outfits. The designer, Daisuke Obana, started his career in fashion as a buyer of vintage and used clothing, earning the nickname Mister Hollywood when he traveled to LA while hunting down some vintage goods. The brand debuted in Tokyo in 2002 and immediately garnered attention from the international scene. Obana brought his brand to NYC several times in the past few years to critical acclaim, and the trajectory of the brand has not slowed down.
