Meet the perfect, trendy jacket for your kiddo! The Senpai Bomber Jacket is like a cousin pattern to the Ichigo Bomber Jacket but has added features that include a boxier, roomier fit (not just for heavy-weight knits but even wovens too!) and is also slightly shorter as well. Plus, there are options like an optional full lining for warm-wear, collegiate style numbers and letters appliqué templates for the jacket back, chest and/or sleeve, welt pockets and chest and/or sleeve pockets, and finally, an option for a hood with drawstring (which can be combined with the neckband or not). You can go crazy and make it exciting or whatever a simple staple piece that goes with everything!
The Senpai is going to be a part of the third PR&P Pattern Designer Capsule Collaboration! For this collection, we chose a Streetwear theme! Streetwear is basically the center of the planet to me when it comes to design. I love how challenging and edgy it can get! What we, as individuals, find artistic and what we choose to wear is such an incredible opportunity to showcase who we are. My girls and I mainly gain inspiration from the street-styles of places like Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei. There is a plethora of gorgeous, thought-provoking fashion over there, it really blows me away!
"KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD" is the slogan where we live and it 100% is who we are as a family. We are on a constant quest for cool wall art and murals! One of my favorite parts of this city is that there are countless jaw-dropping murals around here and that is constantly going up. If I had to pick a favorite artist team though, it would, hands down be the guys behind rather severe. It's bizarre, playful, colorful… it makes you think "what the heck is going on here?" and I love that! Another runner up for me is the botjoy murals that ask questions like "How do you stay curious?" and "What brings YOU joy?"! I have used both in the past for photoshoot backgrounds and I'm definitely going to be using them in the future!
I hope you all enjoy the Senpai and the rest of the incredibly versatile patterns in the collection!
