Reception’s passion is found in capturing iconic locations that are important to communities all over the world, which is why it comes as no surprise that they showcase their exciting summer capsule collection paying tribute to Jazz, Blues, and Soul bar, which is also known to locals as 'JBS' in Shibuya - Tokyo. JBS has been a major part of the community over the last 18 years, and with an impressive collection of over 10,000 types of vinyl that cover everything from vintage to modern, along with inspiring aesthetics where you can grab a drink and vibe with locals, it is no wonder why it's a huge part of the community.
For this collection, they partnered with Tokyo-based artist, Mayumi Yamase, and there's no question why Reception was so inspired to create this collaboration which they have achieved so beautifully through pastel and soft colours inspired from the Jazz bar’s interior, combined with playful paintwork and creative lettering which seamlessly captures the essence of JBS. It certainly is a collection not to be missed!
