Shortly after dropping its 60/40 Cross KAMAKURA Anorak, KAPITAL has returned with a new range of half-quilted bandana-print sweaters, dyed in five distinctive colorways. The silhouette was inspired by tiny bivouac shelters, an improvised camp often used by soldiers and mountaineers who would, traditionally, be sent out from the main camp to patrol for extra vigilance (bivouac is French and derives from the Swiss-German word beiwacht meaning watch or patrol).
Riffing off the outdoor concept, the sweaters feature backs that are made entirely of nylon detailed with chain-stitch quilting. At the front are rich bandana patterns that have been strewn together in various panels of faded dyes — the primary palettes include purple, teal, black and white. The silhouette boasts a slightly boxy cut with drop shoulders, while thick grey cotton ribbing appears at the hem, collars and cuffs. As a final note, the sweaters come with zipper pockets and small tags at the sides that read “KAPITAL JOURNEY PRODUCT” and “WALTZING MATLDA.”
KAPITAL’s half-quilted bandana sweaters are currently available at kapital-webshop.jp for $300 USD.
Elsewhere, GR8 has returned with a new FW19 editorial.
