Yoshiokubo recently unveiled its Spring/Summer 2014 collection. While the Japanese apparel label received some backlash last time for what was seen as an over-extension of the already well-received line, the designer chose to boldly produce something of keen personal interest, channeling inspiration from Spain’s Andalusian community. The line features a large selection of laid-back jackets, shorts and tees inspired by the region. One highlight of mention is the tailored jackets with a particularly bold treatment given to the sleeves whereupon a second layer of fabric has been added. Also unique to the collection is the original “Spanish Aloha” pattern developed just for the collection by Kubo himself that features flowers, olive trees and seagulls.
