Kiri Okuyama and Arata Iura started Revolver in 1998 with a vision of combining life experiences with their taste in music & clothing. Birthed out of the Harajuku scene in the late 90's Revolver was considered under the radar as far as brands go at the time.
Kiri's interest in fashion first started in Paris when he was only 17 years old. Seeing the different elements of street style & high fashion every day, he became inspired by the surroundings of Parisian life. Fast forward 3 years later, Kiri decided to decided to design some t-shirts for fun, which ended up selling incredibly well. So he ran with it. He knew he had the vision to be successful and started brainstorming his brand name.
Kiri had always been obsessed with the Beatles growing up and more specifically the album ‘Revolver'. Years later he became reconnected with the word after Rage Against the Machine’s release entitled ‘Revolver’. Unknowing to what the word actually means Kiri registered it as a trademark later realizing it didn't resemble the Beatles in the slightest. Ironically it worked with his brand ethos in the end as his brand was going to be slightly on the aggressive side.
Kiri's design process is all about taking the silhouettes/cuts of streetwear & coherently mixing them with the craftsmanship of high fastion garments without looking out of place. Overall such an underrated Japanese brand that has unfortunately been lost in the cracks in more recent years.
