Brand: Kaptain Sunshine
Key Pieces: Shinsuke Kojima’s homage to vintage Americana finds minimalist expression in a deconstructed olive pea coat and a loose-fitting, gingham check two-piece set.
Editor's Notes: With his latest collection, Kojima circles back to field workwear with a collection grounded in earthy hues that echo the sun-drenched ranges of the American Midwest. Kaptain Sunshine’s latest lookbook is set in a range of natural environments, reminiscent of vintage catalogs. Dramatic landscapes serve as a backdrop for a refined and unaffected collection of down parkas, knitted cardigans, trench coats, as well as a clutch of tailored jackets and trousers.
Although the collection keeps a relatively close proximity to its Americana color palette, there are notable departures. The cream and brown gingham check trousers are a prime example, as is the down puffer jacket in sea green.
Next to the collection’s heritage backbone, more luxurious pieces can also be found woven in. Notably, the ultra-comfy, cream knitted cardigan and slightly cropped Harrington jacket. Keep an eye on kaptainsunshine.jp and namu.com for the launch of the FW19 collection.
