Following the recent more widely available capsule, a KURA CHIKA YOSHIDA Omotesando only exclusive is created through the partnership between LOOPWHEELER and PORTER. Originally consisting of bags, sweaters, and accessories in grey and navy tones; a black option of the textile is loopwheeled for the locational limited release of crewnecks and neck warmers. LOOPWHEELER’s highly sought after slow weave technique done with vintage looms has always intrigued me, as do many old world manufacturing processes; the result is a low tension knit with superior softness and the ability to retain its shape with minimal stretch after prolonged wear. Detailing elements come in the way of hidden zip side pocket on the sweater, while signature orange accents, brand tabs, and collaborative printed logos are seen throughout. Sparing no effort in attention to detail, one of the most interesting aspects of this ongoing collaboration is the “Porter” character created adorning a hoodie and carrying a branded suitcase as seen on the dust bag. Available starting January 13th only at the KURA CHIKA YOSHIDA Omotesando flagship store.
