Gladiators & Long Noses

May 16 2009: While shooting in Osaka’s trendy Minami-Horie district today, it started to rain. So I sought shelter in the nearest shop, a small men’s shoe shop run by Tokyo shoe brand whoop’-de-doo’. Their latest offerings are really cool, so I want to share them with you.

bluesakura: those gladiator shoes are appearing from everywhere, I really hate them >_<
wowchicken: OMG!! I wanna own one of the gladiator and the long two lace shoes.
Manana: hmmm. I didnt like the gladiator sandals… but the others look confortable! specially the Long Nose Leather Sneakers! still I prefer doll shoes 4 me…

JFW A/W 2009: Junya Tashiro

Mar 25 2009: Like many of this season’s shows at the Japan Fashion Week, Junya Tashiro was in a black mood

Kjeld Duits: Most of the models used by Japanese designers are foreigners. They feel that their clothes look more beautiful on Western models. Kind of a weird concept, as their customers are Japanese. They should be trying their best to make their clothes look good on Japanese bodies, right?
Manana: mmm, is the model a foreigner? where all the models like her or they were japanese models too? I like the combination of the color, pink and white XD
MoonBerry: That was a beautiful dress! I love the color and the lace and the frills…oh, it’s all so pretty!


Mar 25 2009: JOTARO SAITO is the only designer that dares to present kimono at the Japan Fashion Week, which makes his shows always something truly special.

Manana: I think is really cool that japanese designers show their culture in fashion!! Some westerns (including me) will love to wear kimonos!! they are beautiful and they are very refined and polite!!!!

JFW A/W 2009: Fresh Rice

Mar 24 2009: The Shinmai Creator’s Project was set up to promote Japan’s strength in textiles and give promising new designers a stage to show their mettle. Shinmai actually means new or fresh rice. The aspiring designers are, as it were, the grains that the organizers aim to provide fertile soil for.
