Rolandolutions

Sep 22, 2013

Hooray, it's officially the first day of autumn! For those in the northern hemisphere, that means jacket weather is here. I sadly have to wait a little longer since I'm in the land of humidity, but that's not going to stop me from writing about my favorite jacket in my favorite season.

The Roland Jacket is definitely the most iconic piece from Atelier Boz. Its simple and sleek design makes it versatile to work in many styles including aristocrat, ouji, and lolita fashion. Boz always has them in stock and every year they make all sorts of different versions. I can't get enough of them, so I tracked down all of the "evolutions" starting with the original solid black Roland Jacket.

Maybe this should be renamed to "The Rolando Challenge" for avid collectors. These Rolands should be added to Lolibrary soon. I finally joined about a month ago after meaning to join for years, so you might see my username occasionally. Ouji clothing isn't archived as frequently, so the more contributors, the merrier!

  1. I love this! Seeing them all like this is amazing! The limited 4th anniversary pair are seriously amazing.

    Maybe it was a different jacket that they usually do that I'm thinking of, but didn't they make this in chiffon this summer or the last?

    1. My love of this jackets burns like no other!
      Would you happen to be thinking about this one? http://ameblo.jp/bozsinjuku/entry-11512041947.html
      It's super similar, but not quite a Roland. If it's not, then I don't know xD I didn't run see any chiffon jackets while rummaging the catalog.

  3. Thank you for putting this up! I didn't know the Shinjuku 4th Anniversary is called 'Astrid' before.

    N'Way, just think I should add something 'Suvarutsu' is actually 'Schwarz'. Yes. The Japanese and their way of katanization everything so we're gloriously confused. ;)
