Last month, KAPTAIN SUNSHINE unveiled its breezy subtropical Spring/Summer 2020 lookbook, highlighting a bevy of workwear garments and smart layering. This time around, the Japanese label has given an English twist to its bespoke garments, collaborating with Barbour for waxed paraffin parkas in light khaki and black.
First up is a three-quarter length mountain parka that comes with a semi-boxy fit. It sees a raised collar and a small hood, complemented by a central gold-toned zipper with Barbour’s signature round pull, which can be used even with thick gloves on. The zipper can be concealed with an overlapping flap that comes with black snap buttons. Adjustable cinching appears at the waist, next to angular welt pockets. Rounding up the features, a small zipper compartment is placed at the upper left side of the back, complete with double snap-button vents at the hem. The cropped parka is the shorter counterpart to the aforementioned mountain silhouette. The jacket boasts large chest pockets with duo snap buttons and an inner lining that sees a breathable mesh layer as well as waist pouches. Other nuanced details like vintage-style single-stitched seams and branded engraving on the buttons offer a refined touch to the heritage piece.
The Barbour x KAPTAIN SUNSHINE Parkas are currently available at the Journal Standard’s website, ranging from $551 — $581 USD. Scroll below for a glimpse at another collaboration with Porter that KAPTAIN SUNSHINE has included in this season’s slate.
