Wacko Maria’s first delivery for SS18 includes this distinct capsule of patterned ’50s shorts sleeves, featuring the obscure photography works of Daidō Moriyama. Inspired by Andy Warhol and Jack Kerouac and a long list of other artistic contemporaries, Moriyama’s work was largely a commentary on the darker side of urban life in Japan. His signature style of presenting images in grainy, over exposed and out-of-focus ways later informed the direction of Provoke Magazine, which he was heavily involved in during the late ’60s. The capsule includes tees, sweatshirts and coach jackets, but the application on these SS button downs are the winners in my opinion. Launching at Wacko Maria on January 3rd 2018.
