Marie (マリエ) after @DieselBlackGold SS13
I love how loose, soft, and comfortable her outfit yet has a little bost from her booties. The pink is adorable and girly too. I really like how her outfit’s structure holds up. She’s an actress/model/blogger and also studying fashion at Parsons. I believe this is her fashion blog, “My Tiny Dancers” this is her food blog, there’s a page you can click to with her updates/news/etc. I don’t fully understand because it is Japanese : ) Also please let me know if she Twitter/Japanese Twitter/a way to send this to her. Thank you! Arigato!
Naoko in Soho
I love this style! I love jumpers, blue, stripes. She is a buyer for Japanese fashion companies. How fitting I post this outfit with her little American bag right before July 4 (she bought it in Philadelphia).
Her jumper is by Land, her friend’s company. Her shoes are Arnold Palmers. Her earrings are Mashka. Cool, fashionable, comfortable. Japanese meets American style.
I knew I would bump into him soon
Wataru Bob Shimosato of An Unknown Quantity blog, one of my recent favorite discoveries
Keep an eye out for him and be honored if he shoots you! I think we’ll be seeing more of each other this upcoming season.
On the Subway II: Introducing Imi and Japanese Fashion
On the way home from work yesterday, I saw next to Imi. Imi is originally from Japan but moved to New York City when she was 22 (my age!) She was talking with her friend, they were so cute. Anyway, she was wearing this robe/dress that was so interested and I asked her about it! She used to work in fashion and owned a boutique in Soho in the 1980’s.
She got the piece (I guess it might be somewhat of a kimono) in Japan. Japanese fashion is very interested to me and much more forward than other fashion because they incorporate the traditional Kimono technique and ways of pleating so the fabrics last long. This technique was started by the amazing Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons. I don’t know much more about the technique but simply talking to people, seeing things, and feeling fabrics is the way I learn about fashion, art, cultures, and the world!
Thank you, Imi. I’m so glad I took the subway yesterday!
Hiraku on Varick Street, Tribeca
Caught Hiraku on a break from his English classes. I liked the purple of his sweater, his bracelets, and shoes. It was a pretty warm day. Japanese meets American style!
