One of Colin Kaepernick’s favorite streetwear brand threw a party for a “Tokyo-centric” short film series during New York Fashion Week.
FACTO, a three-year-old brand that’s notable for its handcrafted Italian footwear that merges streetwear and timeless sophistication, held the fete September 18 at the Vandal nightclub.
The celebratory release party was hosted by FACTO, a streetwear brand by designer Victor Hsu. The film mirrors Hsu’s early upbringing as a Tokyo transplant who relocated to New York.
It’s not an everyday occasion when a Brand that’s often found at retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, and Kith hosts a shin-dig in honor of a film.
The Manhattan release of the indie short film series that centers on the influential effects of Japan’s creative culture on adult life brought an element of retrospect to Fashion Week.
The film is second in a series of shorts that depict that shows characters adapting to life’s roadblocks, set against a backdrop of Japanese culture.
According to Hsu, every bit of Tokyo’s eccentric people, environments and inimitable culture has sculpted FACTO’s essence.
