Bridge & Burn x Kiriko | Capsule CollectionFeb 02, 2017
Bridge & Burn x Kiriko’s first collaboration showcases the innovation of Portland design and tradition of Japanese textiles.
Uniting classic American workwear and a minimalist Japanese aesthetic, the Bridge & Burn x Kiriko collaboration presents a unique, stylish collection of men’s and women’s apparel, featuring heritage Japanese textiles within a capsule collection of classic Northwest designs.
The Portland design partnership was hatched over a round of sake when Bridge & Burn founder, Erik Prowell and Kiriko’s creator, Katsu Tanaka asked each other this question: “What is the best of your brand?” The late-night revelry turned into an entirely new joint collection inspired by trademark Bridge & Burn apparel but incorporating more fashion-forward silhouettes and daring Japanese fabric and texture choices including: Mikawa heritage cotton; Sashi-ori, the fabric used in Kendo and Judo uniforms to act as woven armor; Kasuri-ori, a Japanese weave technique similar to Ikat; Indigo, the popular natural dye used in Japanese cottons; and Sashiko, a decorative stitch that literally translates to “tiny stabs”.
