Number (N)ine’s runway show for its Spring/Summer 2002 collection “The Modern Age” concluded with a presentation of Gotham-themed t-shirts. Used to solidify the collections ideology & references, Takahiro Miyashita pays homage to the American Beatnik culture of the mid-20th century. The Beatnik was a media stereotype prevalent throughout the late 1940s, 1950s to mid-1960s that displayed the more superficial aspects of the Beat Generation (the people born between 1928 and 1945) literary movement of the late 1940s and early to mid-1950s. Elements of the beatnik trope included pseudo-intellectualism, drug use, and a cartoonish depiction of real-life people along with the spiritual quest of Jack Kerouac's autobiographical fiction. Individuals of this sect were fascinated with literature, fine arts, and anti-consumerism/capitalism. Miyashita incorporated the Gotham motifs as an indirect reference to New York City – the most prominent location of this unique subculture.
Here we have an eye-catching t-shirt from Number (N)ine’s SS02 “The Modern Age” collection. This piece features a bold “I Love Gotham” graphic encapsulated by a gray glitter-print heart motif, all screen-printed on a high quality 100% cotton t-shirt. This piece is yet another example of Miyashita’s extensive ideology that goes into every single garment he produces.
