Vintage clothing store weber will be holding the exhibition ”大Tシャツ展” (Dai T-shirt Ten) at “TOKiON the STORE” in MIYASHITA PARK, Shibuya from June 17th to 30th. TOKION online store will also accept domestic and international orders outside of the business hours of the actual store (from 21:00 to 11:00 of the next day). In commemoration of this event, Hitoshi Ikeda from weber and renowned editor Kunichi Nomura will be holding an Instagram live event. Further details will be announced at a later date on weber’s official Instagram account(@weber71_).
Instead of having a single fixed location, weber is a nomadic vintage clothing store that sets up shop in different commercial facilities around Tokyo. Led by Ikeda, who has experience in the apparel sector, the team’s main focus is to do what they like most while collecting and selling vintage items such as movies, music, and art. They also participate in different collaborations with movie projects. The exhibition “大Tシャツ展“ (Dai T-shirt Ten) can be interpreted as the culmination of weber’s work, where T-shirts of all kinds will be on show, ranging from items worth a few thousand of yen to rare T-shirts reaching hundreds of thousands of yen in value.
For the first time in over a year, our exhibition lineup will be showcasing nearly a thousand T-shirts. Movie-themed T-shirts are especially more abundant than anywhere else, with their values recently skyrocketing in the vintage market, causing many brands and shops to sample and reprint them. The lineup includes classic masterpieces such as Taxi Driver, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and other popular films from the 90s such as Pulp Fiction and Trainspotting, which T-shirts are often reprinted, and films from the 21st century such as Spirited Away, 8 Mile, and Isle of Dogs.
In addition, weber has prepared a wide range of items such as T-shirts by photographer Bruce Weber (which the store’s name originated from), art, music, and corporate promotional products.
