《CAPTION

Why is Nepenthes' theme color purple? This is quite a mystery. I've known the owner, Mr. Shimizu, since before he started Nepenthes, when he was working as a manager and buyer at a bari-bari outdoor shop. Its roots can be traced back to today's Nepenthes, but the interior was woody and almost all of the products on display were American-made, similar to the ``POPEYE'' of the 1980s.

However, when I think back on those days, I feel like it wasn't a nostalgic America, but rather a hippie or Greyfurted feel.

If that happens, it will be connected to Jimi Hendrix's famous song ``Purple Haze'', and a relationship with ``Purple Haze'' may also be born.

Therefore, if you reconsider the purple hoodie with its trademark butterfly print as an item that is connected to the roots of Nepenthes, you may develop a new attachment to it.


《DETAIL

The bold butterfly print, which is also the brand's icon, catches the eye, but the fabric is actually thick and soft, made from 100% cotton, and is lined with French terry, which I personally love. Unlike the brushed lining, it is smooth and very comfortable to wear. Another point that I hate is the ``NEEDLES'' design, where the seams are inside out.
