There are just some pieces in streetwear that will simply never go out of style. Denim jeans, a pair of sneakers, and, of course, the bomber jacket. Since the mid-20th century, the bomber has become a fashion favorite for many around the world. But this time around, Japanese streetwear label Koisea puts a very traditional spin on the classic!
Weaving Two Cultures Together
Since 2017, Koisea has made it their mission to dress people up in the “Sukajan.” But what exactly is this garment? It’s known as the Japanese Souvenir jacket and it’s been around since the post-World War II era. The piece consists of a typical American baseball jacket—the early version of the modern-day bomber—embroidered with traditional Japanese imagery. The result is nothing less than spectacular!
Intricate Craftsmanship in Streetwear
Perhaps the most notable about Koisea’s Sukajan is the craftsmanship. From the grandiose phoenixes and dragons to the painted cherry blossoms, these pieces show the intricacy of touch. And on very fine and delicate silk, no less! It’s a level of craftsmanship rarely seen in streetwear. Despite its casual appeal, the designs almost look couture-level!
An Entire Koisea Wardrobe
Though despite their strong focus on the Sukajan, Koisea also offers up other streetwear pieces for a complete wardrobe. Their black tees, similarly decorated in Japanese mythology graphics, look particularly eye-catching. As do the striking sweatshirts which bear the same intense designs. While they don’t offer any bottoms yet, it won’t be long before their customers clamor for it!
