Kapital, the denim and American inspired clothing label from Japan has been around since 1984 but it wasn’t until the release of their epic catalogs did the rest of the world take notice. The locations that each catalog featured was as much a part of the brand as the clothing. From urban settings in Rio de Janeiro and Paris to rural landscapes in Lapland and Santo Domingo, New Mexico. This year marks the ten year anniversary between designer Kiro Hirata and photographer, Eric Kvatek.
We got a bit of insight into the collaboration last year when Hsiang Chin Moe tagged along to document the making of Kapital’s Spring 2014 collection. It not only gave us a behind the scenes look into how the shoot came together but the special friendship between the two creative forces.
The only way you were able to see it was through a handful of intimate screenings held around the world. But starting today, it’s available for everyone. The worldwide release of Kapital World is now on view on their website.
