Kapital Spring/Summer 2017 Lookbook
Your favorite artisans, Kapital, have just unleashed their S/S17 lookbook, and as per usual, it’s a congenial mix of classic, awe-inspiring and untamed crazy, all shot by Eric Kvatek. Fashionistas, costume designers, and concept artists alike do collect their graphic novel-sized lookbooks for a reason: they’re unlike anything else. The Japanese label has the rare ability to take a deep dive down any fashion rabbit hole that tickles their fancy, regardless of how weird it may get, especially considering they have both the production and design bandwidth to churn out 100+ piece, full-range collections every season.
Never one to shy from a roomy silhouette, Kapital is really living for it at the moment with a range of oversized shirts that can comfortably house two (or honestly three). They continue to allow their Western inspirations and eastern heritage mingle freely, as seen in their loose overalls with knot buttons, US military pieces like bombers and khaki’s — but it’s Kapital, so those things are stretched and contorted into new forms, because why not — and the Native American iconography that’s printed, embroidered and otherwise applied onto just about anything and everything. Love it or hate it, kudos to them for taking it there.
