Yoshi's Crafted World

Kento Yoshioka, we've introduced him to his footage before - first in this fantastic Tightbooth online edit (which is most certainly worth rewatching), then recently here, in Ricardo Napoli's full-length "Ciao". Well now, he just dropped another brand new part, straight to the Internet this time, for his own brand: Kento Hardware, that doubles up as a clothing brand the imagery of which matches the visuals in this clip. The filming can be a bit weird, and so can the tricks (nollie double body varial?), but the young (he's rumored to be just twenty) entrepreneur's creativity, eye for non-spots, street sweat, raw black and white and overall vision can be recognized, singlehandedly synthetizing every Instagram trend there ever was into a modern style that isn't without being reminiscent of some of the most renowned Japanese pioneers. And all that, on Maison Shake Junzi griptape. Quite punchy.
