On November 10th, Takihyo Co., Ltd., a textile trading company founded in 1751 (Headquarters: Nishi-ku, Nagoya, Representative Director, President and CEO: Kazuo Taki), launched a new original men’s brand from New York, “ “Little planet.” I did.
With a tagline of “non-pro technology,” Minor Planet is not an athlete who climbs Everest or runs a full marathon in under two hours, but he enjoys running in Brooklyn in the early morning and surfing small waves in the Rockaways. This is a brand that offers sustainable and classic designs for all sports lovers living in the city.
Jason Levine, former men’s designer for iconic New York brand Rag & Bone, co-directed and worked with us to create the brand.
The first collection includes T-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants and other items that are easy to incorporate not only into sportswear but also into fashion.
To commemorate the brand’s debut, a pre-launch event was held at Nepenthes in New York on November 10, and in Japan, a pop-up event was held at PORTER OMOTESANDO and a debut event at Pilgrim Surf + Supply stores in Shibuya and Kyoto. .
In the future, we will begin to expand widely in New York and Japan.

■About the minor planet
Minor Planet is a sports brand specializing in “mindfulness”, the core concept of yoga.
Mindfulness is the practice of bringing your mind into the present moment by focusing on your physical state and current thoughts.
We express the philosophy of yoga, which allows you to become deeply aware of your body through stretching and breathing exercises, and is expected to have an effect in keeping your mind and body at peace, through clothing and objects that can be used in other sports and daily life.
