NIPOALOHA

http://nipoaloha.com

NIPOALOHA was founded in Tokyo in 2014 by Shinichi Hasegawa.  It is a menswear clothing project paying tribute to the nostalgic Aloha shirt that is surely in our collective memory.  The origin of the Aloha shirt is historically a garment made from vintage Japanese kimonos by Japanese immigrants who started to live in Hawaii. 

 

NIPOALOHA respectfully took the form and vibe of the humble Aloha shirt and re-made them using a traditional dyeing technique from Kyoto.  Using this traditional technique of silk printing, NIPOALOHA is able to apply a myriad of colors onto silk jacquard to make a single shirt. It is a time consuming delicate process that can only be done by artisans in Kyoto.  This premium silk jacquard has become the base fabric used as well as the brand’s identity and DNA. 

 

From the FW20 season, NIPOALOHA will release one new style to their repertoire of Aloha shirts.  That will be the Sukajan, aka the souvenir bomber jacket, a mixture of Japanese and American cultures from the 1960s.
