Danielle: My favourites are definitely the coats. :P
Danielle: Definitely. Looking through the other designers’ exhibits, I was impressed, but mannine definitely matched the aesthetic that I tend to gravitate towards. The interesting prints and structuring of the clothing is really appealing. Glad you introduced them on your blog.
Kjeld Duits: @Danielle: Glad you like the mannine creations, Danielle. The prints immediately attracted my attention, in spite of having already been bombarded by hundreds of competing designs at rooms…

maliceinwonderland: Such cute and unique ideas. I love how she worked with the song, and the matching earrings. I especially like that grey spider hat.

Kjeld Duits: @Ms. Jody: Yes, very tiring, but lots of fun. ^^
Ms. Jody: The photos showing all the stalls reminds me of when I was a buyer for a clothing store and would hit Vegas twice a year for trade show called Magic. It was huge—it took up all of the Las Vegas convention center and part of the Sands hotel. Exhausting but fun. I’d do it again in heart beat if given the opportunity.

Tokyo's Club Scene under Threat

Feb 12 2014: Tokyo’s club scene is under threat from an outdated law created to fight prostitution

Kjeld Duits: @Dariale: Thanks for the detailed comment. Your summary is right on the mark. For centuries, Japanese matsuri used to play the role of the temporary space where the usual rules were suspended. Actually, many of Japan’s uprisings started during a matsuri. But for young urban Japanese matsuri are mostly irrelevant, and too far in between. Will do my best to widen the scope of articles on JAPANESE STREETS to include more stories like this one. ^^
Dariale: Gorgeous documentary… I really enjoyed how it portrayed the issue which is pretty complicated, and being aware of how rigid is the social structure and morals in Japan, I never realized the social importance of clubs. So at the end of the day – or in this case, night – clubs become the space where you can free yourself of the stiffness of daily life.. it´s like Hegel wrote about carnivals, is this place where the exception happens, the rules get lost. So if you want order, you need a momentaneous space to get rid of it, break them and allow people to throw off the frustration of daily life. When dancing becomes that release, it becomes wonderful to fight for that moment. I´m not much of a dancer but love to see how people is moving to reclaim that space. And at the end, is great how it shows the fact that if goverment doesn´t change, people will find a way to keep on dancing. (Love to read this kind of stuff here in Fashion Japan, cheers from Mexico) :)
Ms. Jody: I think it’s because dancing is never just dancing. It’s steeped in cultural significance and that resonates in the shared world consciousness. It invokes emotions, translates ideas, and can be used to bring people together or divide them. It causes a very primal response and that’s why dancing (and music too) has been viewed as something that needs to be controlled.

No Dancing
