Kris Van Assche isn't the only one on the out and out -- it's just been reported that Japanese label Number (N)ine is done for and both its stores will be closing. Takahiro Miyashita's Fall '09 collection will be the last for the brand that's been around for almost 12 years. It was an earnest collection and all the models wore dark veils over their faces. No doubt they didn't want to see this coming.
