Japanese Grandpa Wears High-Fashion Clothes From Supreme, Louis Vuitton, Burberry
When you hear the term “influencer” or “hypebeast icon”, you’ll most likely conjure up an image of pretty young things living the atas life.
How about a Japanese grandpa for a change?
Mr Kudo made his debut on 6 May, with a “Coming Soon” teaser photo dressed in, well, not your typical grandpa robes, that’s for sure.
Within a month, he attracted a 98,000-strong following on Instagram. That’s cray cray.
Dressed and photographed by his grandson
According to Buzzfeed, Mr Kudo has his grandson Naoya to thank for this newfound fame and fortune.
Naoya returned home for the Golden Week holidays in Japan. He had so much free time that he decided to dress his grandpa in some of his luxury clothes for fun.
The next thing he knew, pictures of his cool-looking grandpa went viral AF.
A hypebeast outfit for every occasion
Mr Kudo’s got a hypebeast outfit for whatever the need. In the library, to match the tones of the books, he dons a Loewe light brown top and, as a mark of sophistication, a simple checkered pants.
Out gardening, the 84-year-old rakes the soil with pure class — a full Cosmic Wonder suit, a green satin tie, and a round clean-cut hat.
When not reading or gardening, Mr Kudo spends some time by the beach. But never without a smooth, oriental black and white outfit, complete with black Gucci loafers.
They say sharing is caring. In this case, sharing just turned grandpa Kudo into an overnight hypebeast sensation.
So go ahead and introduce your grandpa and grandma to your collection of exotic clothes. As Mr Kudo has shown, style defies age.
