"xxxHolic" Jacket 

Vintage blue french worker jacket with zip, found at the Paris flea market, fully re embroidered by hand on the theme of japanese anime "xxxHolic" by studio Clamp.
3 pockets on th front (one with a zip), and one more inside (perfect for your mobile !).
"Shell" embroidery on the front is from the period, so is the small stain (due to age and use, can be cover by some sewing repair just by aking, but it's not really necessary that's why i have let it be this way but feel free to ask !).
Unique size, Unique piece !!!

See below for more information.

Work in progress

The term "Bosozoku" is used in japan to describe gangs of young bikers in 1970-1980s. "Boso" means "wild race", or  "reckless driving", and "Zoku" means "clan". This counter culture, strongly influenced by American culture, especially the Hells Angels, is associated to the tuning of vehicles and a specific dress code. 

We were struck by the Bosozoku gang's clothes while readind Fumiaki Fukuda's "One night carnival". The numerous inscriptions on the back of their jackets reminded us of our scholl books, school bags, and such calendars we had back when we were in secondary school. From small drawings to lyrics of your favorite songs, but also peace and love or anarchy signs, you find the little signs revealing your cultural interests (favorite bands, comic books character etc...)

We mixed together the Bosozoku style and our own tennage memories (mainly focusing on what we loved back then), having in mind TV shows such as Son of Anarchy or movies like Crows Zero. That's how we launched our Bosozoku collection. Vintage blue overalls turned jackets, impressive embroideries, unique pieces that require an average of 600 hours of work.
