Dazed Digital interviews Jun Takahashi and Nigo talk about their retail venture NOWHERE. Being the only UK stockist for A Bathing Ape, the pop up store was a serious hit around London bringing their brand's enthusiasts flock in to Dover Street Market's basement. The store also boasts LAST ORGY 2, the re-edition of first collection that the two Japanese fashion icons designed together. With some serious talks and chitchats, the two were also asked about how the success of their brands affected their position and some future works.

Dazed Digital: It’s been almost 15 years since you set up NOWHERE in Tokyo’s Harajuku area. What was the initial idea behind it?
Jun Takahashi: The idea was that by separating the small space of the store into two with wire netting, we wanted to express two totally different worlds of interests and of the way of thinking.
Nigo: I don’t think there was an idea. We were just doing what we felt like doing. I don’t think we needed to think about it that much.
