45th Anniversary Celebration
Ocean & Town & Country : A 45-Year Tale
We aim to enrich your daily living by offering “feel-good” clothes.
This is the starting point for all we do:
a simple philosophy that drives our single-minded artisanal dedication.
Our history has also been a journey in search of new possibilities for indigo.
2022 marks the 45th anniversary of 45R, which was founded in a room in Daikanyama in 1977.
Your patronage has made this possible, and we are sincerely grateful.
For this truly once-in-a-lifetime anniversary,
we have chosen the theme “Ocean & Town & Country: A 45-Year Tale.”
Look forward to a selection of clothes that feel better than ever,
created more in the 45R spirit than ever before,
as we step into Chapter Two of our story.
We hope you will stay for the ride as our journey continues.
Now begins our 45-Year Tale.
Yoi, yoi—yoi, don!
Our 45-year story in seven photo-filled chapters—one for each of the seven seas. The 45R photo book 四十五有 (Yonju-go aru, suggesting both the name 45R and the declaration “Here Stands 45R”) documents our history and way of life over the past 45 years. On sale April 5, 2022.
Pre-orders accepted at 45R stores and our website from January 22 to February 28. All pre-ordered books will be signed by 45R president Shinji Takahashi and designer Yasumi Inoue, and will come with “Chapter 7: Root Society” as a special bonus volume.
