Kimino Street Wear

'Zillion' Baseball Caps by David Guarino

— October 27, 2008 — Fashion
David Guarino's Zillion caps are the epitome of East Meets West fusion. The hybridized pop culture accessories combine the ubiquitous North American baseball cap with the intricacy of Japanese kimono fabric.

For those not familiar with them, kimonos are traditional Japanese robes, often made of silk.

"French designer David Guarino revives old traditions with a stylish twist. These featured designs are available as a limited edition - vintage kimono fabrics in colorful or rigidly minimal patterns, Design Boom says. "One size fits all with adjustable stripe."

We've actually seen western clothes reinterpreted through the influence of the kimono before; last time was in the form of men's ties made of the recycled robes.
Trend Themes
1. East Meets West Fusion - There is an opportunity for designers to create products that combine elements of different cultures to create unique and innovative designs.
2. Reviving Old Traditions - There is a market for products that incorporate traditional elements in a modern and stylish way, appealing to those who appreciate both heritage and innovation.
3. Limited Edition Collectibles - Creating limited edition products using unique fabrics or materials can create a sense of exclusivity and desirability among consumers.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion and Apparel - Incorporating elements from different cultures in fashion creates opportunities for designers and brands to offer unique and culturally diverse products.
2. Textile and Fabric - Using traditional fabrics like Japanese kimono fabric in non-traditional ways opens up possibilities for designers to create innovative and visually striking products.
3. Collectibles and Memorabilia - The use of limited edition collectibles, especially with unique materials, can create a niche market for collectors and enthusiasts looking for exclusive and valuable items.
