Niche
Wild, funky, but wearable – Niche is a vibrant label founded in 2007 and spearheaded by Takumi Oomura, a Nepenthes design veteran. Having lived in Argentina for some time, Oomura-san pulls from inspirations that we have not yet seen, ranging from Gaucho (South American cowboys) culture to vintage militaria of the 60’s and 70’s. Not only is Niche unique in its style but its manufacturing as well – in a given season, Oomura-san can produce pieces in Japan, employ craftsmen in South America, and use deadstock fabric from the US. While we pride ourselves on minimalistic style, we look forward to offering Niche and a window into its eclectic world of Gonzo-esque prints, checks, and patchwork.
