Inspired by the Japanese phrase ‘siekatsusha,’ translating to ‘lifeist,’ Wtaps has consistently composed practical, ‘life-style’ garments since it was established by Tetsu Nishiyama in Tokyo, 1993. Wtaps is Nishiyama’s second business venture, as conceded in the brand name’s military reference; ‘Wtaps,’ meaning ‘double tap’: the outcome occurs with the second shot. This reference translates in the military-inspired designs of each garment, which emphasise durability, functionality and finesse. The brand’s slogan, ‘placing things where they should be,’ reiterates Wtaps’ commitment to precision, directed by Nishiyama’s perceptivity, energy and intuition.
