honoyo : Inspirational Stylish Fun

Apr 11 2014: Tokyo hat designer Honoyo Imai’s creations are stylish, fun, and very different…

Kjeld Duits: @Baterka: But I can understand your English. ^^
Baterka: Amazing! I really like how looking his way. (Search for school ,changes etc) Video was inspiring. :-) You can see that passion of creation. She is really charming! (Sorry for my terrible English :-))
Kjeld Duits: @Mathieu S.: Thanks, Mathieu. Yes, Honoyo is a very inspiring person. More artist than designer, I think. That attracts me to her hats even more. She gives you the opportunity to wear art in your daily life. I hope my readers will support her in a big way. Either by sharing this interview, or by purchasing one or more of her works. I really want her to succeed! She deserves it. ^^

Love a Lot!

Sep 07 2012: Love a Lot! The best advice I have heard in a while. Japanese designer Arika nico has made it her motto and the name of her new label

Kjeld Duits: @Maria: Yes, that one is very cute. Arika nico ‘s stuff is very cheap (for Japanese standards), so don’t hesitate to contact her if you’d like to purchase something. Only the buttons were a bit pricey.
Maria: I love that rainbow over-all! My best wishes to the brand ^^

Dorothy Vacance

Jan 11 2012: Ayano “Gon” Nakayama of Dorothy Vacance transforms old men’s dress shirts into high fashion

Kim: I fell in love with her “tie collared shirt”
Kjeld Duits: @Lactose Intoler-Art: Yes, I think you have hit the nail right on the head there: very tasteful, avant-garde, and unique but also totally her and independent from any major trends influencing the Tokyo fashion scene. I love Gon’s work. She has managed to bridge the gap between other visual art and fashion, but in such a way that the results are actually wearable.
Lactose Intoler-Art: Amazing, amazing! I love her work, and the video was so great, I watched the whole thing. What I love about Gon’s style in particular is it is very tasteful, avant-garde, and unique, but I feel like it is also totally her. She doesn’t seem to defined even by Tokyo trends, but stays true to herself, and it works very, very well for her!
