Wacko Maria

Founded in 2005 by former J-League soccer players Keiji Ishizuka and Atsuhiko Mori, Wacko Maria is one of Japan’s staple labels — often identified by its use of animal prints and bold artist collabs. With its "Paradise Tokyo" flagship store in Nakameguro, the brand focuses on hosting events for its community, collaborating with other Japanese imprints, and a stredy release of quality softgoods. Its collections often take references from the world of music, art and Japanese culture, and incorporate them into signature pieces like the Hawaiian shirt, souvenir jackets and home goods.
