Los Angeles, CA- February 08, 2019- Iconic Japanese denim brand Kapital collaborates with Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob and Rita Marley on a new collection, Talkin’ Blues, inspired by Bob Marley’s iconic denim style, that will be exclusively available at H. Lorenzo in the US. The collection incorporates classic Marley iconography and motifs with Kapital’s tattoo-inspired embroidery and patchwork on selvedge denim workwear.
Following their first meeting in Spring 2018, KAPITAL’s designer KIRO Hirata and ZION ROOTSWEAR’s designer Cedella Marley found common ground in their storied familial background in denim, and their desire to innovate the industry for the next generation. While Cedella built her own reputation as a musician and a designer with a passion for denim, she inherited her father’s legacy and continues to grow her father’s philosophy and family roots. Similarly, KIRO Hirata, joined his father’s Japanese denim company CAPITAL in 2002 where he serves as a designer of his own brand, KAPITAL KOUNTRY, preserving the roots of the denim company while building his own path and reputation for innovative remake-denim. After several meetings, the duo became so inspired by the power of the other’s culture and legacy, they wanted to express this inspiration through a collaborative denim collection.
