Modeling at the Japan Fashion Week

When illustrator Brandon Reierson, better known by his pen name Lactose Intoler-Art, was watching the crowd in Tokyo’s Harajuku, a designer approached him. “Would you like to model?” he asked.

Petra: Yeah, they’re awesome! I think I’m going to steal the idea, and just sew something similar, with those dinosaur spikes at the sides.
Lactose Intoler-Art: Hi Petra, thanks! They are actually two separate pieces. The shorts are by a Japanese brand called VEVEROPPARUUU (ベベロッパル in Japanese), and I just layered them over a pair of basic skinny black jeans. I’m glad you like them!
Petra: I love your pants, Brandon. Mind telling me the brand? :D

Amber: I like the hard-soft nature of her look. All of the soft accents in the dress are balanced with harder elements like the black leather and patent bag. It gives Arisa a very feminine appearance that also carries a bit of an edge. It’s almost like picking up a white rose, and then you feel the thorns. The hair suits her perfectly, as well. _
Kjeld Duits: @shazz: Really. Especially when you take the materials in account that Arisa selected for her jacket and dress, leather and sheer.
shazz: jacket and dress? now that’s just pure genius you just have to be jealous (>_<)<3

The people of the Harajuku Fashion Walk organized the POP ‘N’ CUTE party on Feb 25. Kawaii fashion wrapped up in J-Rock and garnished with Harajuku art.

Kjeld Duits: @Roanne: Come and visit!
Roanne: From these photographs, the event looks like so much fun! :D I’m jealous.


Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection of Japanese fashion brand Theatre Products on April 6, 2012, in Tokyo.

Thursday April 12, 2012
Kjeld Duits: @MissMolly: There are actually two designers: Tayuka Nakanishi and Akira Takeuchi. Nakanishi is the main designer. I added links to their previous collections in the intro above the images. Have a look and let me know what you think. ^^
MissMolly: I’m not familiar with this designer’s previous works, but I quite liked this collection, though I have nothing to compare it to! haha It does have a fairly mature tone, but still seems fun. I’d wear it!
Kjeld Duits: @Maria: Thanks, Maria! I was wondering if I was the only one who was felt that this collection was less creative compared to previous ones. But I see that you feel the same way. I really hope that THEATRE PRODUCTS can rekindle their creativity.

Kjeld Duits: @Dörrie Banana: “in the very north of Germany, actually pretty close to the border to Denmark” — Oh, I love that area. Very beautiful. But I used to mostly visit Southern Germany, though. Crazy about the mountains and architecture from the Middle Ages!
Dörrie Banana: I live in the country side in the very north of Germany, actually pretty close to the border to Denmark. I can only agree with you, Berlin IS a great city. I’ve just experienced that once again. But I won’t stay in Germany much longer as I’m already making plans to go to Ireland for 6 months or so to work as an au pair. If you decide to visit Germany though or find the time, I’ll gladly welcome you at the airport, too ;-)
Kjeld Duits: @Dörrie Banana: Berlin is great. Would love to visit there again. Where do you live, Dörrie?
