The history WACKO MARIA began in 2005. Two former football players – a goalkeeper Nobuhiro Mori and forward Keiji Ishizuka retired fairly early from the big game and opened their own music bar ROCK STEADY. A little down the road followed their brand WACKO MARIA. A brand which was nurtured on the party mood, laid-back lounge and the unmistakable allure of the Latin American culture. When asked what inspired his as a clothes designer, Ishizuka answered: “Friends, films, music, wine, women". And one can hardly think of a better summary of the philosophy of this brand.
