Menswear Designer – Daisuke Obana / N. Hoolywood

While looking through the runway magazines at the Kinokuniya bookstore in Japantown, I discovered one of my new favorite designers, Daisuke Obana under the name, N. Hoolywood. His creativity and vision is amazing. One of the coolest things I found on his website is his old-timey mugshot recreations. Like I mentioned in a previous post, the criminals of the past had much better style than modern criminals. Check out his website here.

His “Police Picture” slideshow can be viewed at

I also found a bio (which explains the Hoolywood/Hollywood name) here.
