Kapital is undoubtedly one of our most unique brands, as well as one of our favorites. From their iconic Ring Coats and Century Denim, to the scarves and bandannas we love so much, to their patchwork and Kountry pieces, and everything else they make, Kapital is a brand that has earned their reputation of style, brilliance, and just a hint of madness.
The down vest is one of those mainstay garments that doesn't get a second thought. Maybe you have one, maybe you don't. Either way, it's a piece deeply rooted in outdoor apparel history with iterations appearing over the years from the high-fashion down to the lowest echelons of mall shops.
Kiro Hirata dives deep on that well-worn template to create something unlike any other. Strips of insulation-filled nylon are woven (by hand, of course) to shape the outer shell of this vest, and sewn down to a rayon / cotton lining to stabilize the whole thing. The amount of labor to produce each one is staggering, along with the precision needed to hand-weave the shell into place.
Fits oversized. Dry clean only.
