“Spring Has Come” at THE PARK·ING GINZA

After initially opening their doors in March of 2016, Hiroshi Fujiwara's THE PARK·ING GINZA concept shop has thrived underneath the bustling streets of Tokyo in the Ginza district. Now that spring is approaching again; the store has slightly remodeled the space. Keeping the framework of architect Nobuo Araki in place and sprucing up the overall aesthetic. The placement of artificial grass throughout the walkways and creating an indoor field allows the store to be much more welcoming than its local competitors. And, the overall idea of the space adds a great juxtaposition between the vibrant city above and the reticent space two floors below. As always, you can find a great mix of brands there from Denim by Vanquish & fragment, WTAPS, FPAR, Allege & a full line-up of PARK·ING Ginza pieces. Images: Eyescream

Kapital · “Khaki” Collection

The guys over at Kapital, in Okayama, Japan have recently released an exclusive "Khaki" collection for spring.  The collection features pieces of clothing inspired by archival military wear and classic work-wear, reminiscent of the 1950's American and British working class.  Military-spec materials like nano-mesh, rayon and linen blends and cotton make this collection stand out.  Pairing that with the classic and unique Japanese type of designing and you get a very diverse selection of clothes, which is what we're typically used to seeing with Kapitals designs.  The campaign will be releasing over the next month, so check out their web-store now to purchase the first couple of drops.

The denim crazed guys over at KAPITAL have managed to take a traditional process of reinforcing clothing,  and apply it to modern Indigo fabric.  Sashiko is a stitching process where little stabs in the fabric are made to produce a much more durable fabric (Indigo, in this case).  The end result creates the most tenacious of fabrics, hence the name Century Denim, KAPITAL assures you that the pants will be in your family for awhile.  The color variations in the denim are from a special Indigo dye, which incorporates a blend of other dyes, resulting in a deep color that will take decades to even begin wearing.
