New Brand: Wacko Maria

Established by two former J-League footballers, Wacko Maria started life as a Tokyo-based record store with an in-house cocktail bar. Keiji Ishzuka and Atsuhiko Mori made their first Wacko Maria lines in 2005 and the brand quickly became a popular name in Japan.

The duo take inspiration from American art, film and music as well as ‘friends, wine and women’. Everything this vibrant pairing create has a sense of glamour and romance offering a fresh take on the classic streetwear silhouettes.

With a care-free attitude, high-end fabrics and Japanese craftsmanship, Wacko Maria is a real contender. It is a new brand to The Hip Store for the SS18 season and the opening delivery includes accessories, t-shirts, sweats, jackets and shirts.

Wacko Maria is online now and available from our Leeds store.
