New/Old. When I went to Japan for the first time, one thing that stood out to me in particular was the harmony of things old & new together in the modern day - From the architecture & the use of calculators to the upholding of traditions and values ffrom an older time, the coexistence of old & new fascinated me.
The badge cap is a representation of this very idea. The vintage style badge upon the main panel of a clean black cap come together in harmony to provide a brand new entity. The restoration of such items gives them an extension of life, like the idea of maintaining original architecture with a renovated infrastructure (as seen across Japan & it’s multitude of prefectures).
Old becomes new in the blink of an eye with a shift of perspective.
