Japanese imprint Kaptain Sunshine readies a disparate array of hot weather goods for Spring/Summer 2018. Taking cues from retro European style, the label offers a host of long, relaxed shorts and breezy layers.
While Fall/Winter 2017 saw the label continuing to mine its preferred vein of workwear-inspired style, Spring/Summer 2018 represents a slight shift from tradition. The clothes are still inspired by rugged, hard-wearing gear, but transition to a sleeker range more akin with vintage European items. Work jackets, knit beanies, loose shorts, extended shirting and slouchy harringtons grant a variety of silhouettes while organic cottons and breathable linens make layering feasible despite the hot summer sun. Meanwhile, an unrestrained color palette further expands the range’s versatility, upending potentially staid items with playful oranges and rich blue shades.
Shop the range as it arrives at stockists like COVERCHORD later this year. On the other side of the Japanese fashion spectrum, Uniqlo‘s affordable GU imprint is partnering with Kim Jones to reissue items from his old eponymous label.
