MURIBUSHI 2019 Collection reflects PACE™ Brazilian Okinawan Menswear
MURIBUSHI is an Okinawan word that means SUBARU.
SUBARU is a Japanese word that means to join.
Collection's name came from the book MURIBUSHI, which depicts the coming of Okinawa immigrants (Island belonging to Japan) to Brazil.
Got find in a stack of books at Felipe Matayoshi's uncle's house.
The collection has strong roots in the memories of how Matayoshi family members dressed when they gathered at a dinner table, their hobbies, and how they behaved.
The pieces are translated to the present time with classic design, like tailoring pants, cropped jackets and work jackets but with avant-garde trims.
Accessories that make us easy on a daily basis are equipped with the highest quality technical fabrics.
With this juxtaposition in mind, the collection becomes complete from headwear to footwear, classic modeling with contemporary rereading.
