Colors of the Japan Fashion Week: Black, Grey and Tan

Apr 13 2010: Three colors stood out during the Japan Fashion Week: black, grey and tan

Kjeld Duits: @kagitsune: I am glad that I added the photos with color accents! Of course, there were shows with lots of bright colors. Especially red stood out. But these three colors were the only ones seen in pretty much all shows.
kagitsune: You forgot to mention the bright orange accents! ^^ I honestly got a little sad when I saw that the headline-worthy colors were neutrals, but once I saw the pops of color dispersed in the photos, my faith in Japan Fashion Week was renewed. xD Lovely photos, of course! Those GUTS guys were incredible. Definitely need to watch them from now on.
Kjeld Duits: Thanks, Nia. I love your gravatar!

Traditional Japanese Colors - Pinks and Reds

Apr 05 2010: The resurgent popularity of kimono has given traditional Japanese colors new life. They are absolutely magnificent. Here is a list

Kjeld Duits: Nipponaisuki: Akaneiro is one of my favorites, too. I love that kind of deep color.
Nipponaisuki: These colors are yummy! Been using Japanese colors in my artwork for a long time…the reds are so great for using with a Hanko…thankyou for the posts!! I think my favorite is Akaneiro
Kjeld Duits: @ojisanbaka: It is usually translated as madder red. See a brief description here. I found this page with info about Akane: ‘Akane’ (Rubia argyi) belongs to Rubiaceae (Madder family). It is a perennial herb that is native to Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu of Japan, Korean Peninsula and China.

Traditional Japanese Colors - Modern Trad

Mar 15 2010: The resurgent popularity of kimono has given traditional Japanese colors new life. This is the second article in a series in which I explore some of these colors and their modern interpretations

Kjeld Duits: @kagitsune: I love the fashion of the 40s! I especially love the “restrained luxury” of the war years.
kagitsune: @Kjeld: Wow, that’s awesome! I’ve been on a real 1940’s kick… we’ll see what comes of it! ^^
Kjeld Duits: @kagitsune: I am totally with you on the mixing of (and learning from) different eras. I used to mix clothes from the 20’s (think pinstripe suits, straw hats, gaiters) with modern stuff and the results were always quite surprising.
