Kings of Indigo – Vintage patchwork & Japanese Indigo

For Kings of Indigo denim is their first love, it’s what keeps the brands blue blood pumping. KOI is always inspired by traditional design and production, but they also love innovation. The SS16 collection brings new fits, innovative printing techniques and quality fabrics, inspired by traditional wear.

Other items that stand out are the patch worked and padded kimono jackets, a ode to Japan.  The fabrics used for these items have loads of character. Some fabrics are hand dyed in natural indigo, with one, two and three dips. Also the brand have created several other prints this season, as a screen print based on a polka dot handkerchief from the 1800´s and Japanese indigo floral prints done with ecru and navy. Last but not least an indigo check fabric is produced inspired by a natural indigo fabric from the early 1900´s the Kings bought in Japan, a handloom masterpiece made with super irregular slubs. All these fabrics together create the beautiful pieces, each fabric telling their own story.
