Everything you need to know about this must-have jacket
It’s official, we’re crazy over bomber jackets and this Japanese inspiration is certainly no exception. Sukajan Jackets (also known as the souvenir jacket of Japan) combine the baseball jacket with high shine and classic Japanese detail – and they’re giving us some serious design inspiration.
About the look
The style originated in Japan, post-WWII as souvenir jackets for American soldiers to commemorate their time overseas. It was all about customisation and detail: the heavy embroidery, and bright hand-crafted designs stitched into delicate silk.
Designs were thought out with meaning, and the most popular included the dragon, koi fish and florals. Take a style cue from any celebrity to see that these designs are still favourites today.
The look became a huge trend for Japanese students in the 60s and is now making its way into pop culture, high-end fashion and street wear. Wear with a confident attitude and you’ve got the look down pack.
