oki-ni | Nigel Cabourn Archive
We love oki-ni for being one of the best web-shops for men’s fashion, but we love even more what these Brit lads put out on display without a price tag on it.
oki-ni’s archive features are designed to offer a chance to explore labels and designer a little further than just their current collections; an opportunity to find out more about their history in product. Their latest addition to the archive page has gone live this week – but this time with a slight twist. Designer Nigel Cabourn is renowned for his meticulously researched reproduction pieces, often produced with remnants of vintage fabrics and finished with dead stock buttons and details.
oki-ni travelled to Newcastle to meet him at home and photograph the amazing archive of original vintage military clothing that provides endless inspiration for his label. We highly recommend you click your way to their website and get a unique glimpse at how history repeats. More info here.
