Kapital Fall/Winter 2018 Delivery II

Hailing from the jean capital of Japan, Kojima, Kapitals' mastery of denim and menswear has ensured its stance as a formidable player within the menswear scene since its inception in 1984. The label reimagines mid-century Americana, utilising heritage production techniques to create designs which invoke an authentic workwear feel.

It is the brands unique approach to reimagining a time which has since passed us by, which so uniquely allows it to bring an eclectic aesthetic, and modern feel, to their meticulously crafted range of menswear.

With durability, and a want to be worn, at the surface of everything the brand produces, it is inevitable that pieces from the brands latest offerings will capture the attention of all — a mission they have successfully accomplished. Bestowing upon us an exquisite range of outerwear, alongside a head-turning tote bag, Kapital has left little doubt surrounding its ability to capture the attention of any, and all, fortunate enough to see their products.

Paying homage to the ancient indigenous people of Japan, Kapital makes an immediate splash this season with a pair of ‘Attus Kakashi Shirts’, both featuring the traditional AINU patch. This offering has landed on the Up There shelves in both a 10oz variety, proudly displaying a red Ainu patch, upon the beautifully curated Indigo Japanese Denim. The piece is also offered in an 8oz version, which features an overdyed AINU patch.

With reimagined notions of authentic workwear guiding the Kapital image, ‘The Lining Deck Jacket - Indigo’ represents the brands take on the traditional deck jacket. Featuring a soft feel 8oz denim, a purposefully irregular button pattern, and a number of playful touches, the jacket is completed by an ultra cozy quilted lining, and interior pocket.

Never one to dismiss accessories, Kapital rounds out this seasons collection with their renowned ‘Canvas Milk Bag - Black’. Providing the perfect combination of unique styling, durability, and practicality, for those searching for the bag to last a life time, the brands most recent foray into the luggage category has certainly caused a commotion, and left us here at Up There very envious of those fortunate enough to purchase it.

Kapital can be both found online and in store at Level 1/15 McKillop Street. For all of the finer details of their latest arrivals, continue reading after the jump.

The ‘Up There Special’ 105 Standard denim is available in store and online now alongside the rest of orSlow’s denim selections. For all of the finer details, continue reading after the jump...

After Kapital’s successful introduction to Up There last season, we’re delighted to walk you through our newest delivery from the Japanese stalwart. We welcome back probably the most popular Kapital jacket the Ring Coat, yes the one Drake wears, in Black and Khaki Katsuragi Cotton. Worn over the top of a popular classic, the Katmandu Patchwork Shirt in Indigo.

Kapital’s style portfolio is vast, which is exciting for us, it means that as we grow with the brand we will be able to introduce our customers to new styles and silhouettes each season.

Two new silhouettes for us this season are the Denim Ringoman Coverall One Wash and the Broad Cloth Anorak Shirt. The Denim Ringoman Coverall is made out of a 12 oz. indigo denim and features some very unique asymmetrical front pockets along with a slanted back pocket. Worn underneath the Coverall is the Broad Cloth Anorak Shirt which also features large pouch pockets on the chest. Inspired by vintage workwear, this shirt is made from a cotton broad cloth and has an exceptionally soft hand feel.

Rounding out the clothing selection we also have the Gauze Bonzu Hiyoku Shirt and the Jersey Crew Pocket Tee in Indigo which will fade and patina with wear. With any Kapital order it is always a must to order some of their Bandanas and Scarves. This season we ordered the Big Fringe Bandana Stole Paisley in Navy, the Selvedge Bandana with Chief print in Navy and Black and also the Bloom print in Navy and Black.
