What We Want This Week

Reception X JBS Tee

JBS, as it is know to devout fans and locals, houses an impressive array of vintage and contemporary jazz vinyls. With over 10,000 records lining the wall cabinet, music is sleeved and alphabetised by instrument and open 7 days a week, owner Kobayashi-san works there alone serving coffees & tees during the day, beers & spirits in the evening while playing records. His dedication is unique. It makes JBS the perfect inspiration for Reception’s capsule collection. The brand continue to explore iconic venues and eateries the world over – shining light on these subcultural bastions and immortalising then amongst clothing culture. The artisan quality of the capsule collection is created in partnership with Tokyo-based artist Mayumi Yamase. The ‘hands-on’ nature of vinyl records is mirrored in the gentle appliqué of painterly prints – ‘JBS’ adorns tees in soft pastel colours, lifted from the hushed palette of the jazz bar. £60.00, Available Reception-clothing.com
