Dorothy Vacance

Jan 10 2012: Ayano “Gon” Nakayama of Dorothy Vacance transforms old men’s dress shirts into high fashion

Delilah Flores: Hope all is well with your designs. Delilah
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.

The Quest for Perfect Jeans

Jan 03 2012: JAPANESE STREETS meets the Japanese jeans fanatics that set off the jeans boom of the late 80s and early 90s

Kjeld Duits: @ricky: Thank you for your interest in JAPANESE STREETS. The links to all the companies mentioned in the article, including EVISU, are underlined.
ricky: if for a brand like EVISU jeans or the other how much is it? and how to buy it? where I can contact the manufacturer or factory EVISU jeans the other? thank you
Tim Hardy: The lengths they go to in order to achieve a standard of authenticity is admirable, interesting and should be adopted by more manufacturers in all areas of fashion if they are really dedicated to their craft, I feel. I spend many hours researching techniques and skills passed down through generations of craftsmen in by my field of leather goods and many other crafts.
