Tokyo Fashion Week occurred while I was there, although I didn’t get closer than visiting some of the designers’ stores
I dropped into Fur Fur in La Foret Harajuku and wasn’t inspired, but I loved this outfit from the 2010 collection (since I adore ruffles, frills, big hair and mini hats).
Motonari Ono, following on from his winter collection, continued to exhibit great jackets with angled hem or contrast lapels, although this season the shoulders were stronger (thank you, Balmain). Interestingly, the jackets were juxtaposed with lingerie elements.
I LOVED G.V.G.V’s collection back in March – all goth and rock-chick. This time I’m drawn to the graphic black/white prints in strong diagonals with studded detail; very confident and almost futuristic.
