EXCLUSIVE: RTA X MASTERMIND WORLD CAPSULE COLLECTION
Japanese fashion brand Mastermind World and L.A.-based RTA have teamed up for an all-black capsule collection of Tees, crewneck sweaters and jeans. Each piece is characterized by a mix of the two brands’ logos – Mastermind’s skull and bones and RTA’s cross – as well as the founding year of both labels.
“Ever since we were kids, Mastermind has always been a brand that Eli (Azran) and I looked up to for inspiration. When the opportunity came to meet Homma, we were very humbled to speak with such a creative and iconic designer,” says RTA co-founder David Rimokh. “Since our philosophies were in line, we decide to do a collaboration together and launch it exclusively around the world.”
RTA, or Road to Awe, was launched with the purpose of a creating a movement of like-minded individuals who share a belief that clothing should be used as a form of expression, albeit an effortless and chic one. The RTA girl is confident and while the clothing evolves, her ideas are never deterred.
Masaaki Homma founded high-end label Mastermind in 1997. Each piece is made in Japan and proudly displays it in the tags, along with a list of names of people that helped create the piece of clothing.
