Japanese brand Kapital mixes Japanese textiles with a distinctly Western styling sensibility, using detailed craftsmanship and innovative treatments, coming out on top with appeal to a huge range of consumers and denim die-hards alike (have a look at their range of denim here). Titled “Surf Cowboys”, the new lookbook opens with an image of a denim patchwork mermaid and branches into a layered, colorful ensemble set, photographed by the sea. Creative knits and outerwear have a hand-made feel, complimenting separates that blend into the lifestyles of the working, rugged man and the trendy, urban record collector just as seamlessly.
