With the “Papillon” (French for “butterfly”) logo, Needles have found their enduring, if unlikely, symbol. Whereas other labels with animal logos choose to animate them as characters, the Needles Papillon remains elusive, maintaining the mysticism and allure associated with butterflies. This season’s collection contains a number of garments adorned with the Papillon, putting the label’s chosen silhouettes into flight.
Needles eccentricity as a label is not a result of them creating outlandish designs, but something that only becomes apparent between the different pieces in their collections. The Needles Women’s D.N. Coverall Jacket takes the classic European worker’s jacket and imprints it with the Japanese label’s elusive mark.
Constructed from off-white 8oz herringbone cotton, this jacket features a rounded collar, three patch pockets on the front, a straight hem, vertical back yoke, front button closure, buttoned cuffs, and, most importantly, the Needles Papillon stencilled on the chest patch pocket.
Made in Japan from 100% cotton.
