Tambourine at Tokyo Fashion Week

Tambourine A/W 2014/2015

Last season, Nozomi Ishiguro and Tambourine had a joint show, which I wrote about here, but this time they were separate. After attending the Nozomi Ishiguro show, I can see why – there’s no way the styles and ambience of the shows could have complemented each other. I arrived on time, albeit with very wet…

Jotaro Saito for Tokyo Fashion Week

Jotaro Saito for Tokyo Fashion Week

The invitation was the most intricate and ornate one I have ever received in the post. Please admire it in all its glory later. My first thought was, “A kimono show at Fashion Week? Surely not.” But then again, why not? On Wednesday, March 19th,  Jotaro Saito presented his Autumn-Winter collection for next season, only five…

LA Fashion Council at Tokyo Fashion Week

LA Fashion Council for Tokyo Fashion Week

As soon as I arrived on site for the show, I saw dozens of photographers parked with all their equipment focused the fashion space.

Tokyo Fashion Week is now in full swing, and I was lucky enough to score an invite to Nozomi Ishiguro’s A/W 14/15 show on Saturday, March 15th. The show was held at Laforet in Harajuku, a shopping mall all Harajuku girls frequent. The show was due to start at 9pm, and the queue was massive,…

MOW ice cream

Ooh aah a little bit MOW

This brand of ice cream is widely available in convenience stores and supermarkets. It’s neither gelato no gourmet, but it’s affordable and pretty yummy. What originally drew me to trying it was that a few years ago Yamapi was their poster boy. One either likes pretty boy types or one doesn’t, and I happen to…

Happy Birthday to Kitty… and Me

Sweet little Hello Kitty turns 40 this year! With her popularity rising astronomically over the years and for the foreseeable future, she can only be compared with good wine as something that gets better with age. It’s probably safe to say that she will only stop when she has achieved world domination. I consider myself…
