A Japanese favorite, Kapital launches into Fall/Winter 13 with the release of their latest seasonal catalogue, Indigenous, which presents the latest assortment of handcrafted denims.

Kapital fans will be happy to hear about the release of the Kojima-based brand’s release of their 38th catalogue. Paying tribute to the indigenous people around, the latest lookbook is full of globe-trotting influences from traditional Japanese fabrics, Americana classics and the eccentric layering the Japanese label is known for.

The book is photographed once again by long-time partner Eric Kvatek, who shot the photos in the stunning woodland landscapes of New Zealand. Meanwhile, Kapital designer Kiro Hirata provides the perfect wardrobe to complement the location.

This time around the brand introduces a range of eclectic prints and patterns along with a rich and earthy palette of color to complement the usual indigo hues. Some beautiful textures are added to the mix this season with fur pelts, folky knits and of course boro and sashiko accents throughout.

The book is only available at Kapital outlets, but you can check out a selection of the images on the brand’s website and through Eric’s personal blog.
