Kapital jeans

Shunji Ohasi from one of the most inspiring denim labels in the world, Kapital, is in Stockholm in association with the Swedish Fashion Institute.

The label is synonymous with avant garde prints & denim rooted in indigenous Japanese textile dyeing, embroidery, workwear best seen in their beautiful shops in Tokyo. 

Today he spoke about the "mottainai" ethos of his company, where nothing is wasted & all is re-used which in today's pressing ecological situation was a useful reminder. 

Of course some of the prints were amazing ;)

This looks really beautiful.

Would love to dive down and see this live...

Cast by British sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor in 2009, these 400 concrete statues off the coast of Isla Murejes near Cancun, Mexico and have now been integrated into marine life and coral vegetation. Easily viewed by snorkelers this will soon resemble a "lost" Atlantis...or just a spiritual garden. Genius.
