Decade old Japanese brand which just opened their first flagship store in Tokyo featuring one of the country’s top baristas, Takayuki Ishitari. Founded in 2005 by two former football players – Nobuhiro Mori (goaltender) and Keiji Ishikuza (forward) - Wacko Maria started as a music bar named ROCK STEADY. Inspired by Latino American culture and "friends, films, music, wine, women."
Offering a distinct and individualistic twist on the Japanese craftsmanship meets casual, Western style, Wacko Maria pulls visual influences from an array of sources with a wilder background than the standard and staid “Ivy” look.The punk rock abandon meets Tokyo nightlife meets Hollywood underbelly melting pot of style makes Wacko Maria stand out as one of the premier brands in cutting edge, streetwear fashion today.
