This funky number is new to our collection, 100% cotton drill this bomber carries our Tupuārangi print on a handmade patch. This is a limited run item, due to stock availability. So get in quick!
Design: This collection is based on the star Tupuārangi (male), one of the stars in the Matariki Constellation. Tupuārangi is similar to Tupuānuku (the star of all cultivated and uncultivated food products) in terms of its connection to food and growth; however, in this instance he is associated with food that comes from the sky. Tupuārangi is linked to nga manu (birds).
For this collection we drew inspiration from the manu, the kererū, the kākā and the kāhu. We have also used the overall theme of Tupuārangi as a hunter of birds.
The main tohu (pattern) for Tupuārangi is the kākā pōria, which are small leg rings usually fashioned from bone or stone such as pounamu. This was so that the birds could become mōkai (pet) which were then used to help hunt more Kākā birds.
The patterns within the kākā pōria link to matariki by using elements of nine.
Style: This bomber jacket is longer in length, made from Cotton Drill and supplied by AS Colour. We have paired it with a pair of tights and heel boots in the photos.
Models: Our model Haylee is wearing a size LRG.
Sizing This jacket is classed as a mens (tāne) jacket so the sizing for wāhine (women) is quite relaxed as tāne sizing is normally slightly bigger than wāhine.
