Creep by Hiroshi Awai clothing line features traditional tailoring and a cozy quality.
Toronto-based director and designer Hiroshi Awai rendered this macho line for Creep clothing. Creep originated in Japan, created by Hiroshi's brother, and bled into American culture with Hiroshi's migration. The menswear is inspired by Japanese design and functional American work wear. Japanese clothing tends to focus on appearance, while American apparel has a deeper basis in functionality and wearability. Fisherman caps and chunky work boots bring out an endearing masculinity. With basic fabrics, modern structuring and quirky detailing, the line is rugged and outdoor-ready.
Hiroshi Awai is a young independent with a sturdy vision for the future of men's streetwear.
