you're in tokyo! hurray! i hope there hasn't been any earthquakes..although it's quite common there. ps: i really enjoy these multiple photo posts lately…i hope you keep it!!! enjoy your time being in the ring of fire (from someone who was born and raised in the ring of fire – philippines). peas!
Awesome!!! My guess is that the stripes photo is shot in front of the Ralph Lauren store in Omotesando, and the top picture next to LaForet, facing the Gap! It's nice to have to you here, I am certain you can find really great shots. The other day, I saw an elderly man taking his daily walk in a traditional Japanese yukata (a kind of robe) which was in navy, with geta sandals (traditional footwear made of wood). But what made the outfit fascinating was his neck area, which was wrapped in a Burberry scarf. And he was holding the best mahagony cane!
Hope you will enjoy your stay! I wonder where the second picture was taken?
that jacket in the first photo is a Kashmiri crewl work jacket. i would recognise that embroidery and style anywhere. Crewel is a traditional art form (one of many different types) of embroidery in the Indian occupied Valley of Kashmir.
i love kashmiri embroidery (my family originates from there) and have many shawls, coats and dresses with this and other types of embroidery – i would be happy wearing them all the time – and it really makes me happy to see something so special to me on here!
i would never have thought this one on a guy though! love globalism – a kasmiri coat wearing guys in japan : )
The picture in the middle with the stickers on the blind in front of the fan looks very much paul-smith'ish. Reminds me of his book "You can find inspiration in everything".
Sart, this is also true for your blog and your posts. The styles shown on your pics are not always "wow, how can I look like this", but it inspires you – and, to say it with Paul, if not, people, look again!
Love that embroidered jacket balanced with the stripes and tan slacks. Love the dark blue bag. Really amazing look — love how these Japanese guys know how to work color and patterns into their everyday wear. Still remember the guy in the orange Etro coat on the broad steps. Thank you so much — wish I were in Japan too!
i really like the first look, i love to wear stripes and floral patterns myself, i think the pattern mix is great-and the guy looks so easy going and happy! definitely the best attitude to carry off clothes in :)
I'd love to hear what you think about Tokyo's fashion in comparison to your other major destinations. I find Tokyo style is so diverse, with everyone seeming to have their own person style. And it seems to me like it's all about the details here, which I love!
