Yukio Mishima – Poet, actor, bohemian, samurai, aesthete, revolutionary, genius and maniac. We erect a memorial to this most ambivalent, most exciting person of younger Japan by making this shirt. His likeness on red ground is emblazoned on this snow-white shirt. Red as the blood that flowed on his pale hand, as Mishima ended his life in a final act by seppuku. This actor was, to put it in the words of Nietzsche, a “poet of his life” and sealed the last line with his own blood.
He was an aesthete- beyond the depths of party politics. He was driven, enlightened by the samurai's code of honor, by the question on ho, in this modern world, an honorable life and death are possible. His conclusion was equally fascinating as eerily: The beauty of a healthy body, whichDas Eigene behaupten und das Beste aus jeder Lage machen is sacrificed on a self-created battlefield, became his guiding star, which he wasn't losing sight of, even during highest social and financial success.
He could have had everything – but instead he went the whole hog. You only die once and you should enjoy it to the fullest. Neither surrender to nor run away from your own death, but rather make it to the final act of lifes symphony, the last brush stroke on lifes painting – in this Mishima anteceded us. Therefor he made this last stroke with blood. Long story short: As renowned actor and nobelprice indicating author, just for the heck of it building up a private army, raiding a military camp an calling the soldiers to conservative revolution for the tenno – That's darn edged and keen. And hence Mishima deserves a place in our phalanx!
