Kaptain Sunshine

Kaptain Sunshine

Launched in 2013 and based in Tokyo, Kaptain Sunshine is designer Shinsuke Kojima’s homage to vintage Americana, with each season riffing on variations of field and naval workwear. Kojima-san draws from a rich, archival knowledge of heritage clothing, but executes in a way that is strikingly modern. He pays tribute to original outdoor and nautical influences, but uses volume, cut, and fabric to produce his own refreshing take.

Perhaps influenced from his days in publishing, Kojima-san creates lookbooks to situate the clothes in natural environments in ways reminiscent to vintage catalogs, whether in the woods or by the seaside. In this way, Kaptain Sunshine treads the fine line between tradition and modernity beautifully.
