Creator Series #002 – Wacko Maria
For Creator Series #001, we converted Suite 501 into a pop-up studio for Guy Lawrence of British electronic duo Disclosure to spend the week making music in the tropical surroundings of Katamama.
This time round, we hosted Tokyo-based imprint Wacko Maria to discover more about the thought process behind the fashion collaboration with our sister brand, Potato Head.
Since forming 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 Potato Head’s design aesthetic.
The limited-edition Wacko Maria x Potato Head aloha shirts come in three hand-illustrated designs – ’Bali Collage Dancer’ ‘Mystic Island’ and ‘Bali Tropics,’ and are now available to purchase online via the Potato Head shop.
Filmed in The Katamama Suite during the Wacko Maria team’s visit to Bali for the product launch at Potato Head Beach Club, series #002 centres around an interview with founder Atsuhiko Mori and his daughter Yurara, the artist of the ‘Mystic Island’ motif.
Take a look at the interview – plus exclusive footage from the Bali launch party headlined by Hunee and Killer Tunes Broadcast on Saturday 20 January – below.
