Indigo-obsessed Japanese company OKURA has debuted the latest selection of looks from its in-house label, Blue Blue Japan. Informed by the brand’s playfully revised denim, the collection blends timeless staples with handsewn sashiko detailing and even some sportswear-minded goods, like a kangaroo-pocket anorak.

Rich cool hues add a layer of depth to the clothes, which play off of wardrobe staples. Bomber jackets and blazers are all infected with the label’s iconic indigo dye, along with trousers and ties. An asymmetric leather jacket adds some edge to the otherwise accessible gear, while a rich paisley coat updates ’70s-style with a trim fit and streamlined lapels. Inner layers include liner jackets, tonal sweaters and shibori-dyed shirts. Knitwear also appears in the form of thick scarves and weighty beanies, while other headwear includes fur-trimmed caps and wide-brimmed hats. Standout pieces, of course, are the eye-grabbing sashiko-stitch yukata jackets, offering a mix of patchwork boro and washed-out blue shades.

Shop the goods later this year as they hit stockists, like Unionmade Goods. Elsewhere, fellow Japanese denim enthusiasts FDMTL teamed up with Dickies on a range of mismatched and patched coveralls and trousers.
