WTAPS: how did it come about?
The secret behind the name WTAPS, pronounced "double taps," lies in a military shooting technique of firing two consecutive shots at the same target, reflecting Tetsu's appreciation of military attire, the protagonists of the designer's early collections overflowing with cargo pants, functional backpacks, and field jackets in earthy camouflage tones.
Street style soon became a presence in his collections starting in '98, which would propel him into the western streetwear scene to become WTAPS as we know it today, through collaborations with major brands like Big Ape and Supreme, with WTAPS screen printed tees and hoodies, to the iconic WTAPS x Vans collaboration, the true sneaker love story.
