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.
An exceptionally interesting piece, the Tugihagi Kesa cardigan is entirely hand knit, featuring indigo threads, quilted sleeves, and highly textured panels of differently woven yarns. The hand knit is uneven, giving a pronounced 3D texture to the entire body. Multiple different natural fibers are used in producing the yarns for this cardigan, utilizing wool, hemp, and cotton to produce a uniquely soft and strong fabric.
It's cut with an extremely wide, relaxed body. The fit is almost regal, with big roomy sleeves, dropped shoulders, and a slouchy drape. Ties at the front and side give you multiple ways to close it up - cinch it at the hip for a more trim, asymmetrical fit, or tie it at the front for a more casual, open vibe. Two bucket pockets sit at the waist for you to stuff your hands or most relevant goods into, but you don't have to use them if you don't want to.
The simple design and humble material selection stand in contrast to the very stately and bourgeois fit, creating something that feels much more connected to daily life. It's a garment that's equally in-place on a morning stroll or at a fancy dinner party.
