There are a couple buzzwords we are all used to in the fashion world: couture, ready-to-wear, statement, and trend. How about Japanese fiber technology?
Yup, that was a new one for us too. Joey Rodolfo, big-deal Seattle apparel designer (yup, that's on his business card) is out with a new line inspired by Japanese fiber technology. BUKI is functionality and comfort at its finest, for both women and men and made to hold up in all sorts of different conditions.
The high-tech fabric literally reacts to your body temperature and cools you off or heats you up depending on your current temperature situation. Just to eliminate any confusion, this is totally different than dri-fit clothes. As soon as you perspire, BUKI dries on the inside and quickly dissolves on the outside (a perfect fit for the perpetual sweater). The line is sleek, modern and smart. I want it all!
For the most part, the collection consists of basics so you can build your wardrobe from them. Lots of white, light blue, gray (both heather and dark) and black. My FAV is the ex-boyfriend shirt (all the names are catchy and I love that). Scroll through the gallery, but seriously the pics don't do the line justice. The fabric is to die for, so soft and comfy! Prices range from $149-$400, you can shop online starting this fall.
