After presenting its expansive Spring/Summer 2020 lookbook last month, WACKO MARIA has unveiled its latest statement piece from its seasonal lineup. The label has a penchant for crafting vivid Hawaiian shirts, and the new piece is a good example. Emblazoned with a rich collage of red and monochromatic prints, the shirt depicts a variety of posters from the Japanese yakuza film series Battles Without Honor and Humanity by Kinji Fukasaku from 1973.

The button-up comes in a trio of colorways: one subtly tinted in blue; one, in yellow and another, kept clean in white. A good majority of the shirt is dominated by black and white shades, accented by striking red contrasts. The kanji characters displayed as the film series’ titles come in red across all the imagined posters, except for one. The standout graphic shows a yellow tiger-head motif against lush sunset gradients, while a thinly etched portrait of one of the protagonists from the series is placed at the lower half of the poster. Besides all the bold imagery, the Hawaiian shirt comes with a semi-boxy fit, notched lapels and white buttons, finishing off the piece with a refined look that feels semi-formal.

The WACKO MARIA Battles Without Honor and Humanity Hawaiian Shirts will be available at the label’s website on March 20 for $326 USD.
