The godfather of Harajuku–a Tokyo neighborhood that now lends its name to a distinct Japanese youth style–Fujiwara brings his inimitable aesthetic to his multiple collaborations–from Louis Vuitton to Nike to Beats headphones.

The Converse X Fragment collaboration launched February 16, 2017. Get the kicks here.
