HYSTERIC GLAMOUR has unveiled a brand new piece from its Spring/Summer 2020 lineup — a souvenir jacket and Hawaiian shirt emblazoned with artful depictions of Raijin and Fujin, Japanese gods of weather. This release follows a collaborative capsule with WIND AND SEA seen back in November.
The specific print was originally painted by Korin Ogata, a prominent Japanese painter in the 17th century best known for his opulent byōbu folding screens, like Irises and Red and White Plum Blossoms, as well as his detailed paintings over ceramics made by his brother Kenzan — Ogata was one of the pioneers of the school of Rinpa, a form of Japanese painting developed in 1800s Kyoto. Set atop a sleek black foundation, the souvenir jacket and Hawaiian shirt is glossed with Fujin at the front and Raijin at the back. The jacket comes with standard lapels, silver-toned zippers and an elastic hemline for a sightly fitted look. In contrast, the summery button-up boasts dark brown bamboo buttons and a semi-boxy cut for a breezy relaxed fit.
HYSTERIC GLAMOUR’s souvenir jacket and Hawaiian shirt are currently available on the label’s website for $550 USD and $326 USD, respectively.
