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.

Hailing from the jean capital of Japan, Kojima, Kapital’s mastery of denim and menswear has ensured its stance as a formidable player within the menswear scene since its inception in 1984.

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 who have the opportunity to see and interact with them.

Pieces such as the ‘Ringoman Cargo Pants’ and ‘Ivy Western Shirt’ borrow heavily from the brands affinity for reimagined pieces from a time gone by, sat alongside for innovative designs in the form of the ‘IDG Fleecy Knit Sweat Pants’ and Kapital’s ever reliant ‘Katsuragi Napped Cotton Ring Coat,’ little doubt exists that the brand is perfectly suited to not only keeping you cozy through the colder months, but also ensuring that any, and all, fortunate enough to purchase one of their pieces will be turning heads out on the streets.

Nanamica FW18

Once again Up There is fortunate enough to have the fan favourite Japanese label ‘Nanamica’ grace our shop floor. Aiming to combine various casual, functional and fashionable elements, the Tokyo based brand certainly lives up to its own agenda, with a range destined to visually stun, but also ensure the upmost comfort and practicality for its wearer.

This season Nanamica has created a range of items which both challenges, and pays homage to, many traditional aesthetics, whilst consistently ensuring excellent craftsmanship throughout.

With traditional garments such as the ‘Alphadry Crew Jacket’ and ‘Alphadry Club Pants’ laying the foundation for Nanamica’s latest offering, the brand seeks to perfectly juxtapose the beautifully simplistic aesthetic offered through the more outlandish designs shown on pieces including — but not limited to — their ‘Vertical Stripe Pants’ and ‘OOAL Graphic Hood Parka.’

Nanamica FW18

However, the ever evolving brand would not be the renowned pillar of the fashion world that it is today without its constant desire to develop its garments beyond the expected. Enter the brands ‘Gore-Tex Soutien Collar Coat’ and ‘Gore-Tex Crusier Jacket,’ which in addition to being absolutely necessary items for any wardrobe, provide a completely impervious shield to rain, sleet and snow for its user, while allowing perspiration to pass through it from within.

Nanamica has perfectly positioned itself to be a critical wardrobe staple throughout these upcoming months, and certainly established itself as a range worth further exploring!

We are absolutely stoked to once again see Nanamica back in stock, and thrilled by their latest offerings!

Nanamica can both found online and in store at Level 1/15 McKillop Street.
