Yu Amatsu for A Degree Fahrenheit

A Degree Fahrenheit for Tokyo Fashion Week

I was super psyched to receive this one in the post, as A Degree Fahrenheit is definitely a brand I’ve come across before in magazines over here. By Friday, I felt like I was old hat at the shows. I just strutted in brandishing my invite, and got a seat for a change – and a…

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.

Tokyo Fashion Week – Spring/Summer 2014

Although Tokyo street style is widely praised – especially those kooky Harajuku boys and girls – Tokyo Fashion Week does not attract as much attention as the Big Four do. As soon as the shows start in New York, London, Paris and Milan, bloggers begin frenzied Instagramming and Tweeting, and the world follows, spellbound, but…

The Rise of the Scrunchie

This accessory, a staple for many little girls, is one that we all part from at some point in our lives. A good rule of thumb might be that it is pretty unfashionable to be seen dead wearing one after one’s teenage years, at least in public. Grown women presumably shun them for a good…
