Daily Paper & Alpha Industries Release MA-1 Space Bomber Jacket

Reimagining Zambian scientist Edward Nkoloso’s dream to go to space.

October 10th 2017

Military inspired brand Alpha Industries and Amsterdam-based clothing label Daily Paper team up with a new limited edition outerwear piece for the upcoming winter.

The Daily Paper x Alpha Industries partnership is built upon inspiration from Zambian scientist Edward Nkoloso’s 1960s dream to build Zambia’s first ever space program to visit the moon and send his so called ‘Afronaunts’ to Mars.

Despite his efforts to obtain funding from Western powers, his dream never became a reality. Nevertheless, Nkoloso gave his people hope to always chase your dreams no matter how big. The MA-1 bomber jacket seeks to explore Nkoloso’s dream coming to light by reimagining a unique iteration of the iconic MA-1 bomber jacket.

The Daily Paper x Alpha Industries MA-1 bomber jacket mixes the two brand’s trademark styles featuring colourful embroidery patches and a unique Daily Paper signature silver lining.

The MA-1 bomber jacket is now available on the Daily Paper webstore, as well as the brand’s flagship store in Amsterdam and selected retailers.
