Kapital Spring/Summer 2019

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.

This season's knitwear is their most detailed to date, their three dimensional sweater is meticulously knit together with motifs of the Ainu people and their surrounding habitats. Continuing the coziness, Kapital give us their Fleecy Knit Zip Hooded Parka. Constructed using a 100% cotton sweat fabric and has been aged to resemble a vintage product With finite sashiko drawstrings and subtle washed indigo overdye.

Kapital Spring/Summer 2019

Kapital reimagine the classic tracksuit this season blending Japan's beloved souvenier 'Sukajan' style motifs amidst the embroidered tape that runs along the arms of the track jacket and legs of the track pants.

Moving on to this season's outerwear, we see three of Kapital's signature pieces return with the Katsuragi Cotton Ring Coat in Khaki, and Ringoman Coverall Jacket in Washed Denim. The trifecta includes a strikingly detailed sashiko print, and boro transfered Kamakura Jacket which of course can be worn almost a million different ways as seen here... 

Rounding out this season's selections we've got the newest addition to the range with the relaxed cropped cozy goodness of the Shimokita Pant in Black and Khaki.
