Wacko MariaTokyo, Japan
We've been a fan of this cult Tokyo label for a minute. The brand was created by two former J-League Football players and friends, Nobuhiro Mori & Keiji Ishizuka, and was born out of their first venture, the Rock Steady bar in Tokyo. The brand's main inspirations revolve around American culture, film, music, photography and girls. The quality is always premium, but it's their no fucks given attitude that really sets them apart.
They've even collaborated with some of the biggest names from the underground art world, including LA tattooist Tim Lehi, and Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama. Look out for their signature styling across classic pieces such as coach jacket, army shirts, and more featuring intricate graphic embroidery, bold text, and the signature Wacko Maria 'GUILTY PARTIES' type.
