Jazz, Blues & Soul, or JBS, as it is known to fans and locals, houses an array of vintage and contemporary jazz vinyls. With more than 10,000 records lining the wall cabinet, music is sleeved and alphabetized by instrument. Open 7 days a week, owner Kobayashi-san works there alone serving coffees and teas during the day and beers and spirits in the evening while playing records.
JBS now acts as inspiration for Reception’s capsule collection. The capsule collection is created in partnership with Tokyo-based artist Mayumi Yamase. ‘JBS’ adorns tees in pastel colors lifted from the palette of the jazz bar. The slipmat, captured in baby blue and white watercolor, creates a blown-up polka-dot print that adorns bowling shirts and pants. The apparel collection in available now.
