Akashi Kama – How It All Began
Akashi Kama is founded by Japanese-American Alec Nakashima and is based in California. The foundation of this brand is established on Japanese-American cultural heritage and the brand’s clothes show its effect as well. The dual nationality founder desired to wear something that had both of his countries’ touch. An idea that hit him like a bolt of lightning; hence, Akashi-Kama came into existence.
The Aesthetic Apparel
The apparel is designed and made in California. Japanese material is used in the respected process. The company aims to bring out something unique and new for the buyers, as the brand is influenced by various cultures. Their products include Kama Mock Neck long sleeve shirts, crewnecks, hooded sweatshirts, and T-shirts. Among the amazing products, their Noragi Jacket is the most popular.
Talk Of the Town – The Haori Shirt and Noragi Jacket
Alec explored several designs and discovered a way to incorporate American streetwear into the Noragi jackets. This Noragi Jacket resembles a Kimono garment that has arm-holes and has strings that tie to hang loosely; unlike the traditional Japanese Kimono. This comfortable garment is made with the best quality material. These jackets are now the signature of Akashi Kama, which has proven dual heritage fashion to be a success in the United States and has become the talk of the town.
A variety of fashion magazines, including GQ, Valet Magazine, and Gear Patrol, have covered and highlighted the brand and its narrative.
By merging cultures in his artistic clothes, Nakashima believes that hebridges cultures. Fortunately, he has been successful in this purpose to a great extent as the Japanese American culture is elaborated through his products. This has been greatly appreciated by the customers.
The fashion industry is one of the oldest industries. However, today, just a few companies achieve success and can rise above the others. Only a handful have become globally famous and are still among the world’s best-selling products. There is no denying that Akashi-Kama is rising to be one of them. It hasn’t been long since the company was launched, but in such a short period of time it has proved to be one with staying power.
