A brand concept "Post Japonism" by designer Shunta Nakajima that aims to create “brown clothing” that evokes the spirit of the Japanese people. ALMOSTBLACK = “Brown” is a deep indigo that looks black. In the Heian period, “Kachie” were clothes that were dyed with indigo then beaten with a mortar to give it a luster. In the Kamakura period (1185-1333), Samurai loved it as a talisman of good luck as it was associated with "winning" - the "brown robe" worn by military officers was called "brown". In the Edo period, it was called "kachin-iro", and in the Meiji period, it was called "gunkachi-iro" because military uniforms were navy blue.
