Japan’s KAPITAL has displayed thoughtful appreciation for a wide array of disparate cultures, most recently blending ample nods to Jamaica into the label’s Spring/Summer 2019 lookbook. This yielded standout garments like the Kamehameha rayon jacket, and similarly inspires the “Navajoland” Hawaiian shirt.

Rayon is a manmade textile that can feel cheap or papery if poorly constructed — naturally, KAPITAL’s rayon is a shining example of fine craft, utilizing a richly-textured variant that serves as a standout example of the lightweight fabric. Atop the shirt is a painted image of various Navajo peoples, which isn’t KAPITAL’s first effort at memorializing native tribes. Offered in brilliant yellow or blue-tinged variations, the garment retains the same core imagery, simply repurposed with a different summer-ready palette.

The “Navajoland” Hawaiian shirts are available on KAPITAL’s web store for ¥28,944 JPY (approximately $265 USD).

For more seasonal patterned shirts, check out HAVEN’s SS19 WACKO MARIA editorial.
