The most dangerous thing you’ll step into all the day. For the A&P New York project we took our classic silhouette and sent it to Nobi Kashiwaga for treatment. Nobi started training Jiu-Jitsu in 2000 and received his Black Belt in 2009 from Fabio Clemente.
In 1995, Nobi Kashiwagi moved to New York City from Japan to study photography at Parsons School of Design where he graduated with a Bachelors in Fine Art. Nobi began his career at the acclaimed fashion-advertising agency AR New York. He has worked on many different projects across advertising, branding and design including, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Brioni, Asprey, Brooks Brothers, Jones New York, St. Regis Resort & Hotels and the Surry Hotel. He also worked on editorial page design for Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia. In 2011, he started his own studio and worked on accounts such as P&G prestige, Rizzolo Publications, Engineered Garments. In 2014, Nobi joined Vogue Conde Nast designing editorial pages with fashion editors each month.
We are excited to share this project in New York City for New York Jiu-Jitsu.
On October 2nd of 2016, Albino and Preto unveiled a limited edition kimono at Team Fabio Clemente. The gi, which borrows some stylistic points from the iconic blue and orange colors worn by the New York Knicks, was designed by Nobi Kashiwagi — a BJJ black belt and longtime student of Fabio Clemente. Stock was very limited and only available on a first come, first serve basis.
