Amsterdam has been stunting as always, and it’s pretty cool to see some younger cats trying to get theirs as well.

Its all really a no degrees of separation thing, so come follow me now:

In the above image you see rapper Donnie wearing a pin by brand new XXX-label NIPPON. Donnie just dropped his new single featuring my long time spirit animal and fellow Walter Van Beirendonck-admirer, Vjèze Fur. Vjèze Fur is playing a significant part in the brand new 100% Halal and Vice-produced feature film “Prins”, which also stars KNOTORYUS favourite Vincent van de Waal. Vincent van de Waal is Patta’s creative director, so obviously, a small Prins x Patta capsule collection had to happen. Patta has been working for the longest time with stylist and seriously interesting -his IG here– human being Bonne Reijn who just released a gorgeous new (not targeted to a specific gender) Bonne Suits collection. This past weekend Bonne co-produced an expo for his friend artist Floor Van Het Nederend and for this occasion they collaborated on two super dope new pins with #b****youguessed it : NIPPON.nippon_pins2Nippon_pins_leidscheplein_0005_Layer-1

NIPPON reached out to KNOTORYUS and we fired back some questions :

KNOTORYUS : Who is NIPPON?

“We’re Juan and Rory. When we met we were both wearing pins. Thus NIPPON was born.”

KNOTORYUS : Whose boobs did you use for inspiration?

“We kept it general. They’re based on pretty breasts of course. Instagram freaked out as soon as we posted our first photo. #FREETHENIPPLE”

KNOTORYUS : How big is your own pin-collection.

“Not that big, I haven’t been collecting them that long. The most special one might be the Dragonball Mr. Popo pin I bought in Japan about a month ago.”

KNOTORYUS : For people who have seriously been missing out, but I guess you have to understand the Dutch language on a lot-t-t-t-t of different levels to fully appreciate this kid, could you explain who Donnie is?

“Donnie is a very sweet boy who loves to rap and lives for designer clothes. He is great at wearing and saying expensive things. He will be releasing an album with Bas Bron from De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig and together with Vjèze Fur he did the soundtrack for the movie ‘Prins’.”

KNOTORYUS : Who do you want to see wearing NIPPON?

Rihanna, because Rihanna. But seriously : everyone. Pins are dope.

“To commemorate the release of ‘Prins‘, Patta has collaborated with Prins to deliver a limited edition Patta x Prins capsule collection. This mini collection consists of a t-shirt, polo shirt, cord crewneck sweater and a waist bag. The lookbook features the collection’s items modeled by the co-stars and is photographed at the film’s various locations.”

“After having worked as a stylist from a young age, Bonne Reijn (Amsterdam, 1990) noticed something missing in the variety of clothing available to us. He felt compelled to create something that would be oblivious to any occasion, sex, age, or social expectation, something that would be a key piece in anyone’s life and wardrobe, suitable for informal and formal occasions, and with long lasting quality. In early 2014 Bonne designed a batch of black and white two-pieced suits, and labeled them “BONNE”. Brand and working relation PATTA enabled him to impart on a third party for production. Today these suits are for sale in red, blue, black and white. Sizes are made to fit all men and women, from XXS to XL.”

BONNE suits are €170, buy HERE
