Human Made sweatshirts go against the current flow of trends within fashion using a secret recipe that includes the right amount of craftsmanship and nostalgia. Human Made sweatshirts are based on '50s and '60s Americana workwear pieces through the process of deconstruction and the analysis of vintage garments from Nigo’s personal archive. The brand is what he describes as his attempt to selfishly create the clothes he felt like wearing. As an obsessive collector, Nigo’s warehouse includes an astonishing archive of vintage clothing that for him serves as the starting point. Human Made sweatshirts are part of the reinterpretation of pre-1960’s Americana clothing, specifically workwear.
Human Made sweatshirts have a more mature tone in comparison to those of his previous projects. The era represents lost technology and shines a light on the no longer existing machines capable of making the stitching and fabrics we love in old garments. They are all about the process, paying attention to detail, design, and construction. Quality is guaranteed as Human Made sweatshirts are produced by artisans in the famous Osaka Warehouse. The products created under this philosophy include utilitarian workwear Human Made sweatshirts and more. Aimed at a smaller audience, Human Made sweatshirts, take on a graphic approach channeling themes found in Nigo’s everyday life. The curry-up graphic found on many Human Made sweatshirts, for example, is a reference to his boutique dinner in Tokyo under the same name. Other motifs that have become synonymous with Human Made sweatshirts include the polar bear, duck, tiger, and trademark heart-logo. Nigo seems to be equally as good at collaborations, with names such as Adidas, Girls Don’t Cry, and KFC as just some on the brand's track record. Nigo’s creative journey has inspired many, including Virgil Abloh, who paid homage to his legacy by inviting him to collaborate on Louis Vuitton’s pre-fall 2020 collection titled: LV2. The collection channeled the mod-era dandy through Nigo’s lens and left hints to the different stages of his career throughout, inducing ice cream-melt details, and the slogan “Louis Made” in reference to the one appearing on many Human Made sweatshirts.
Known for its bold colors and returning graphics, Human Made sweatshirts are perfect for layering. Popular styles are the college-style pieces with raglan sleeves, navy-inspired half zips and the full zip camos, to name a few. Human Made is wildly popular every season and all Human Made sweatshirts come with trademark details such as a small heart logo embroidery on one of the sleeves
