Blue Owl is excited to welcome Attachment to our ever-growing collection of labels.

Attachment began in 1999 under the direction of designer Kazuyuki Kumagai. A pupil of the esteemed Japanese designer Issey Miyake, Kumagai founded his own label to focus on streetwear inspired by military and biker garments. The brand was quickly renowned for their staples - leather jackets, tees, and denim. Their focus on high quality, in-house fabrics, and subtle design choices made the brand stand out from its contemporaries.

In 2007 Kumagai began his signature label, "Kazuyuku Kumagai Attachment", often abbreviated to KKA. This branch was originally designed to be shown in Paris, and incorporated more fashion-forward silhouettes and high-end detailing. The two labels are considered two sides of the same brand, with Attachment focusing on classic tailoring, and KKA on experimental fabrics and unique design.

Both KKA and Attachment celebrate a long history of creating clothing that has timeless style, but unique construction. After 17 years at the head of his own label Kumagai has refined his process, creating collections that are iterative, and focus on fabrics and textures that reflect the progression of his designs.

In his own words, Kumagai wants to design something that is minimal, but builds character through the use of original fabrics. Tailored cuts with detailed stitching continue to define the brand. Our inaugural season features a well-rounded assortment of jackets, coats, tees, and accessories from the Attachment label.
