When one thinks of indigo-dyed garments, one of the few brands that come straight to mind is Blue Blue Japan. Season in and season out, the Japanese label is one of the greater champions of indigo dying and you’re guaranteed for at least a few interesting surprises in each collection.
This time around? Indigo-dyed nylon. Applying a traditional, centuries-old natural dying process to a contemporary, lightweight, and windproof technical fabric—something you would never associate with old world craftsmanship—is made all-the-better by a subtle unevenness thanks to overdyeing, and in my opinion, it makes the piece. The hooded jacket is partially lined, features a buttoned stand collar, a zip front, dual pockets at the chest and again at the hips, and an adjustable hemline.
If you’re into indigo and sportswear this may very well be the piece of your dreams. But act quick, BBJ stuff is always hard to track down.
Available for $660AUD (~$465USD) at Corlection.
