WACKO MARIA was founded in 2005 built on inspiration from American culture consisting of music, film and art. WACKO MARIA’s signature style can be described as high-end streetwear with inspiration pulled from punk, surplus and religious imagery. “Paradise Tokyo” and “Guilty Parties” are two of the brands most recognizable phrases that pay homage to the Japanese district of Nakameguro. Their religious imagery graphics and iconic Hawaiian style button-up shirts, have become vastly popular in the streetwear culture and made them stand out from their streetwear counterparts.
