Teaming up with the fam over at SDA, the oldest of the Osaka 5 brand group know a thing or two about developing innovative indigo threads. Upon first experiencing this “Noragi Sashiko” fabric in person last Fall, we knew this would find its way into the OD+ catalogue at some point, it was just a matter of how and when.
Having already designed & developed a brand new silhouette in-house of a Bomber flight jacket for OD+SDA for Fall 2020, the brunt of the work was already completed. We felt like the fit of the jacket was dialed in just as we wanted, after being tried, tested & loved on the previous ODSDA005 jacket.
Traditionally in Japan, cotton fabrics were considered an indispensable commodity. Kimonos were not always seen as simply a statement, they were reserved for special occasions. Historically, Kimono were worn everyday through harsh Winters and scorching Summers. As such, clothing was re-used repeatedly and never thrown away. Even when completely worn out, fabrics were carefully stitched and patched back together, commonly known as "boro".
Following our design ethos that makes an OD+ piece unique, we wanted to have something special tucked into the jacket just for the wearer/owner to enjoy.
We toyed around with indigo discharge fabrics, linen & canvas to use as possible lining material for the jacket, but eventually came across a few vintage Sukajan (Souvenir Jackets) during the design process, and the rest is history. Cue the finest jacket liner we've had come through the doors. We took a Rayon heavy fabric that is usually reserved for Souvenir Jackets (or Sukajan), and had the entire inner of the jacket lined with the subtle, yet supreme, inlay. Applying a 70% Rayon / 30% Cotton textile to line the entire jacket & pockets, a color best described as Blood Red was selected to line this piece. The Zipper pull tabs were custom produced for this piece from a natural cowhide leather.
