CRAFT: Japan’s Cult Clothing

One of Japan’s best kept secrets, Kapital was founded thirty years ago by designer Toshikiyo Hirata and has steadily gained a global following of denim devotees. Taking it’s name from Japan’s ‘Denim Capital’ Kojima, Kapital started life as a denim brand, borrowing production techniques from vintage American workwear. Today, a string of Kapital stores across Japan house large collections of carefully crafted mens and womenswear, where walking through the door is as much an experience as wearing the clothes themselves. Kapital Kountry is one of unexpected design mash-ups – where Americana meets Japanese tradition, bohemia is reinvented for denim-heads and every piece of clothing is designed with complete originality and uncompromising attention to detail.

Be sure to seek out the nearest store, and don’t forget to pick up the latest lookbook – for a little piece of Kapital on your coffee table.
