I love THEATRE PRODUCTS, but I found this show disappointing.
There were two outfits that I kind of liked, the others I thought were rather boring.
Even the location for their show, their Harajuku store, was off.
It came across as amateurish for a brand of their stature.
Especially because this year is actually their tenth anniversary.
It is all so different from previous collections like A/W 2011 and A/W 2010
What happened? Is it because of the difficult economy?
Is it because designer Tayuka Nakanishi (one of the two owners) is pregnant?
I hope they soon rediscover their creativity and power!
Or is it just me? What do you think?
Inspired by the stunningly creative street fashion that exploded on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka in the late 1990’s, photo-journalist Kjeld Duits launched JAPANESE STREETS in 2002. This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion.
