Masahiro first created the"Hyoma" figure around 1986. He was born from graffiti that he was writing at the time as a student. He states in a interview with YourFashionArchive that "I wrote on Hyoma’s face the energy of the moment the world changes. Because I am shy, I decided to write on his face to convey a message without words." He wanted to stray away from mainstream high fashion & to tell more of a story from his own subculture! The item showcased is a thick simple wristband with the iconic Hyoma baby face embroidered on front! Has a couple of small stains but barely noticeable.
