Tokyo Fashion Week Favourites, So Far



What I love most about Tokyo Fashion Week is the fun. There are similarities to some of what we've previously seen in the major fashion weeks (I often think Libertine, Creatures of the Wind and Rachel Antonoff from New York would fit perfectly in the Tokyo lineup) but there's always that little extra of Japanese flavour, a bit more daring, fearlessness when it comes to colour (what's there to be afraid of, anyway? is my eternal question), and things we would simply never ever see at the big four (or anywhere else for that matter) - see the last collage for that.

Beautiful People used a shopping mall as their catwalk!


I could do without the blue lips at Nozomi Ishiguro but it wasn't enough to distract from the charming layered pastel-tinted outfits

Liz Lisa gives us what many associate with Japanese culture - an obsession with the candy cuteness of female childhood. She reminds me of Luisa Beccaria for 8 year-olds. (I think some of Liz Lisa's models aren't that much older!)

Not gonna lie...I really like the green parasol dotted with pink...flowers (?) in the last set. Pretty! Impractical on a day-to-day basis, but pretty. :)

Adore the first piece in the Sunao Kuwahara collection...it's like a Anna Sui/Eley Kishimoto hybrid!

Jennifer - I do love a pretty parasol myself! I am still committed to getting one, eventually!

Nic - Spot on, 'tis indeed!

Denise ♥

It's a fashionista's worst experience, even worse than looking oversize buddy, more degrading than wearing the same dress in another party -- it's the fear of symbolizing looking yesteryear fashion trend model.
