Adidas x Neighborhood

Japanese brands always have projects collaborating with other brands.  We’ve had in the past, Head Porter x Beams, Comme des Garçons x Converse, Mastermind Japan x Vsivim, and so on, they’ve all been extremely successful.  The main reasons are; they are all limited edition, so it made them more precious.  Second, you paid a price and you are wearing 2 brands, pieces that contains 2 different design elements, which usually created new dynamics to both brands.  And of course, it could be once in a life time for the collaboration.  It is possible that they’ll gather again, but who knows when. It could be years later when you might not even fit into the targeted age group anymore, keep in mind that your taste might change over time.

A bag of jokes…

"MY OTHER BAG IS LOUIS VUITTON" mini tote, USD$45

I subscribed newsletters from a couple of Japanese online stores at Rakutan so that I can keep updated with the latest Japanese fashion and trends, and I realize that Japan is very fast in terms of screaming out their they unique trends and styles.  Anyways, so I’ve the newsletter e-mail from a store, I opened it and I can’t stop laughing about these canvas bags…the letters written on the bag as “MY OTHER BAG IS LOUIS VUITTON.”  I thought this must be some kind of joke from the Japanese, I clicked into the website and see if there are other selections, I saw the same bag with Hermès, Chanel, and Gucci…and then I found out, the bags were actually designed by a New Yorker – Jessica Kagan Cushman (JKC).

ZOZOTOWN in Japan has been doing very well in their distribution network, they’ve always offer good stuff from the international designers other than just the local Japanese designers.  I always keep my eye on the ZOZOTOWN website for these updated trends and new brands that are entering the company.  British designer Margaret Howell will launch her line at ZOZOTOWN on Monday, 22nd June.

200x200_b0100142_01Japanese fashion has always known to be inspiring and influential in the worldwide fashion industry, quite a few of Japanese designers earned the tickets to the grand stage fashion shows in New York, London and Milan.  However, not everyone of us could afford to buy Comme des Garçon or Yamamoto Yohji, so I always search for the alternative.  I usually go for more affordable lines, with good designs, just like H&M and designer crossover.
