Quiksilver has for the first time invited a creator to produce a collaborative capsule collection. They chose influential Japanese designer Takashi Kumagai, who is best known for his work for Porter. For Quiksilver the designer put together an interesting collection, which is both modern and colorful, but also references classic American workwear. The line is inspired by the 70s, 80s and of course surfwear. Colorful M-65 jackets, woven shirts, shorts and denim workwear pieces come together in this collaborative capsule collection. We like a lot the colorful pieces and the workwear pieces, but are less impressed with the shirts of the collection. Also the mix of different styles seems a little strange, at least to us.
The Quiksilver x Takashi Kumagai Collection is now available from colette.
Detailed images of all pieces follow after the jump.
