The guys at East London store Anthem have been waiting quite a while for their shipment of Kapital to arrive from Japan. Overseas deliveries can be cruel like that. All is right with the world now though, as some of the most extraordinary garments to land on these shores are now out on shelves – it seemed rude not to stop by and say hello. We’ve shown a lot of fan-love to Kapital in the past, seeing everything up close, it feels justified.

Detailing in the form of traditional Japanese Boro and tattoo inspired embroidery, silver concho buttons on heavyweight knitwear, incredible raw denim and patchwork faded indigo, a shawl collared coat that nearly brought on the vapors. A great mix of challenging and more staid garments, we could go off on one about the socks alone but we’ll let the images do the talking. Thanks to Anthem for the tour.
