“I was too close and didn’t think about that.”  said Tetsu Nishiyama, founder of WTAPS.


According to Tetsu, he was working with A BATHING APE, PORTER and NEIGHBORHOOD under the name BROTHER HOOD, the time when mobile phone hasn’t become popular yet. And as a personal organizer, he didn’t realize such as an collaboration. And he referred that the collaboration was about NEIGHBORHOOD, not WTAPS.
