Beyond the Asian and Western eclectic, the elements of this collection are expressed using VOLCOM's high-grade denim, mil-spec level ripstop, and custom tie-dyeing. This ‘worlds collide’ concept of Yin-Yang is used as a metaphor, while denim jackets and military shirts have a reversible design that allows for more coordination. Kung-fu pants, Chinese shirts and Japanese farmer’s working clothes “Noragi” are all based on the philosophy “EMBRACE THE STRANGE” that VOLCOM has been advocating for many years.

Prior to joining Volcom, Kazu was an original member of OriginalFake (KAWS and Medicom Toy) so his foundation in design stemmed from street style and brands that emerged from 90s hip hop and punk culture in Japan. “Fashion in Tokyo has so many free expressions through music, art, anime, manga…and they cross over,” Kazu explains of the “mixture” in the city. Through that mixture, he was inspired to design the “Yin-Yang” Capsule – the first series of the Tokyo True collection.
