What is glamb?
“Grunge for Luxury”
That’s the tagline for Japanese luxury brand glamb. Established in 2003 by Kan Furuya, this brand actually started out in Vancouver, Canada, before it was more throughly established in Japan. Since then, glamb has become one of Japan’s most popular fashion brands due to their unique “grunge” and “streetwear” style aesthetic, which has gained them fans not just in the country, but also worldwide.
Aside from their yearly collections, glamb is also perhaps most known for their collaborations especially their pop culture and anime collaborations. You can find a few examples of their ongoing collaborations below.

In the past, they’ve even created collections for icons from the West like Stanley Kubrick and The Rolling Stones.
