Creator Series #002 - Wacko Maria

For Creator Series #001, we converted Suite 501 of our sister hotel Katamama into a pop-up studio for Guy Lawrence of Disclosure to make music overlooking the ocean. 

 

This time round, we touch base with cult Japanese streetwear brand Wacko Maria to find out more about the inspiration behind the Wacko Maria x Potato Head aloha shirts, launched in January with special events in Bali, Jakarta and Hong Kong.

Since the brand’s inception in 1995, Wacko Maria have built up a niche following from their base in Tokyo to cities all over the world. Their collections are often inspired by music, twisting classic styles in a modern way – an approach that has synergy with what we do at Potato Head.

After the launch event at Potato Head Beach Club, we sat down with the Wacko Maria team to learn more about what drives their creative process.

 

Filmed in The Katamama Suite, Series #002 centres around an interview with founder Atsuhiko Mori and his daughter Yurara, who hand-illustrated the ‘Mystic Island’ motif for the Wacko Maria x Potato Head shirts.

Check out Creator Series #002 – including exclusive footage from the Bali product launch party headlined by Hunee and Killer Tunes Broadcast on Saturday 20 January—below.
