KAPITAL‘s bandana layering pieces are at the forefront of the summer’s bandana print trend, demonstrating the Japanese brand’s skill at reimagining bold patterns within its own distinct worldview. The recent bandana-printed baseball caps are even more accessible than its outerwear, transforming a heat-beating staple into a seasonal statement piece. Available in five colors — red, blue, purple, green and black — the bold headgear is a playful subversion of some famous baseball cap companies, replacing the branding sticker on the brim with Kapital’s signature smiley face imagery. Contrasting sections of bandana-printed cotton are layered into each six panel design, complete with a flat brim stitched with another smiley face tag. Inside, the hat boasts a polyester lining and an adjustable velcro strap to allow for a customizable fit. The bandana-printed hats are currently available on KAPITAL’s site for ¥13,824 JPY (approximately $130 USD). . . . . kapital kyoto . 6/21(金)ONSALE . . . . #kapital #kyoto #kapitalkyoto #bandanna #bandannamuseum #patchwork #smile #smiley #cap #red #green #blue #denim #instagood #fashion #instafashion #eastmeetswest #okayama #newarrival #elephantbrand #...

Some parents have never been to camp before, while others are veterans. But of those who have some kind of experience with it, camp comes highly recommended. As one mom wrote for CafeMom: “It establishes independence — Sure, going into a new situation where they don’t know anyone can be a little bit scary at first, but kids need to learn to be comfortable being away from their parents.” Camp does other cool things for kids, too, like giving them routine, a mental break, and keeping them active. But with camp comes (dun dun dun) the packing. Now, packing for anything isn’t anyone’s favorite thing. Packing for a kid doing something that’s not entirely known is even harder.
