On Our Radar: Horiyoshi The Third Scarf-------
Horiyoshi III is to the art of tattooing what Karl Lagerfeld is to couture: a living legend. Put the Japanese irezumi expert’s name on a line of clothing, and you aren’t going to get another Ed Hardy knockoff. Can you picture this pink peony-print silk and cashmere scarf in a Christian Audigier store? We didn’t think so. Horiyoshi draws all of the designs on his sweaters, T-shirts, and accessories, not unlike the way he works freehand on his tattoo subjects. The line is made in Japan in limited quantities, which means this scarf isn’t quite as rare a Horiyoshi tattoo, but it’s close.
Horiyoshi the Third scarf, about $350 at Alan Bilzerian, Tomas Maier, and Savannah. Visit www.horiyoshi-thethird.com for more information.
