2015 model has arrived. They are not released in Japan, yet. They are going to be sold at Mens’ section of Isetan, on 7th floor from Golden Week (2015 May 2nd – 6th) in Japan -The popular design with pineapple pattern. Original shirts were produced from DUKE KAHANAMOKU BY CISCO in early 1950’s. This is the reproduction of the one of the earliest vintage aloha shirts.
This is my 5th times to make a reproduction of Pineapple, however, this one is completely different from other ones. I produced color patterns that are different than cannot be found in original colors.
This time, I wanted to make shirts with white as a base color. However, I did not want it to be too simple by using a monochromatic color, so used off white as a base color. I sparkled them up with pale yellow, shocking blue and red. The contrast of the colors are creating a refreshing impression of the shirts. This was my original color pattern.
