To celebrate the Chinese New Year we took our limited-edition "Year of the Monkey" MA-1 Flight Jacket to DC hotspot Maketto.
As part of their Chinese New Year celebration, we took over four display cases inside the store and decorated them to honor the Chinese New Year. They included our "Year of the Monkey" bomber along with the Slim Fit MA-1 Flight Jacket in various colors. The displays were complete with red banners with the "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" monkeys, traditional new years decorations as well as a tribal print backdrop that matches the inner sleeves of the CNY bomber. Each mannequin was wearing a traditional Chinese shirt. You can see photos of the displays below.
Located on H Street, Maketto is more of an experience than just a retailer. The location includes a restaurant with Taiwanese and Cambodian cuisine, a cafe, and a carefully curated boutique carrying everything from outwear to books. They celebrated Chinese New Year (officially Feb 8) throughout the weekend with Chinese dancers and monks as well as their Dim Sum Sundays.
