[The second theme of the "outerwear that fits aloha" series is "Daruma"]
The illustration is a mix of Daruma dolls, which have been loved by many people since ancient times as a good-luck charm, and Shisa, the guardian god of Eanbe's Okinawa roots. This Vietnam jacket features embroidery that will make you feel positive and even bring you luck just by wearing it.
The embroidered artwork is by painter and artist "Frankie Suehi," who has collaborated with companies such as Google, Starbucks, and Instagram, as well as his own solo exhibitions, live painting, and a wide variety of other expressive methods.
On the front, the "Takasaki Daruma" face, whose eyebrows represent two animals, a "crane" and a "turtle" with a beard, is placed on the right breast, and the "Fuku" embroidered on the left breast of the "Fukurokuju" doll. On the back, the Daruma doll is based on the Okinawan Shisa motif, with a message font boldly applied.
[Thoughts put into "FALL 7 TIMES, GET UP WHENEVER"]
The font "FALL 7 TIMES, GET UP WHENEVER" expresses Frankie's interpretation of "Eanbe-ness. The sentence "Fall down seven times, get up whenever you want," rather than "fall down seven times, get up eight times," expresses the idea that in times like these, "no matter how many times you fall down, you can get up whenever you want, at your own good Eanbe timing.
