Osaka nocą

Ta sesja ma specjalne znaczenie dla mnie z dwóch powodów.

Po pierwsze odbyła sie na kilka dni przed moim wyjazdem z Japonii i było wtedy jedyne 5 stopni.

OSAKA BY NIGHT

Kwiecień 21, 2017

This photoshoot has a special meaning to me for two reasons.

 

First of all, it was taken only a few days before I left Japan for good, and  it was just 5 degrees outside so my nose turned red pretty quickly (unlike Japanese noses which don’t seem to change color, lucky them).

The second reason is because of the special connection I had with these two Canadian gentlemen.

A shade of white – New beginnings-今日のスタイル

Luty 13, 2017

On a cool, crisp, winter’s day I went to Yumebutai on Awaji Island.

涼しい風の吹く爽やかな日に,私は淡路夢舞台を再訪した。

I don’t know why this place truly captured my heart, but it made me come back so that I could take more pictures of its beautifully designed complex of buildings and gardens, before leaving Japan for good. I subconsciously chose all white styling without realizing that white is the color that the Japanese associate with life and death, love and life, old and new, young and old.

美しくデザインされたさまざまな建物や庭を見て回るためだ。 なぜだかわからないが、この場所は私の心を捉えて放さなかった。だから日本を発つ前にもう一度ここに来て写真を撮っておきたかった。でも無意識のうちに、すべて白い ものを選んでいたようだ。白という色から、生と死、古いものと新しいもの、若さと老いを連想していたのだろうか。 Continue Reading

The 5 coolest shops in OSAKA

Styczeń 1, 2017

It’s not strange to discover that people who visit Japan generally thrive on shopping here. Recently, foreign visitors have been permitted to shop “tax-free”, which makes this activity even more tempting. You just have to show your passport and you can save a few bucks!

Tokyo is obviously the Mecca of shopping in Japan but I wouldn’t underestimate Osaka. In this city, there are many hidden gems waiting to be discovered, and you can actually enjoy a relaxing and stress free shopping experience. In contrast, the metropolis’ big city hustle and bustle can be a bit overwhelming, even for diehard of shoppers like me.

Highlights of Tokyo Fashion Week ss17 -COTE MER and NAME

Highlights of Amazon TFW SS17

COTE MER

Designers: Norio Sato / Seishi Naito

The self-taught Japanese designer, Norio Sato, a former vintage clothes buyer, has been receiving widespread acclaim for his distinctive and innovative approach to fashion.

In 2008 he founded the Cote Mer brand with Japanese pattern maker Seishi Naito. Since then, they have been reinventing vintage materials and silhouettes, by recycling and enhancing them. They have also been experimenting with modern textiles on vintage, one-off garments, which they liken to rare oceanic waves. The Japanese proverb “Ichi-go Ichi-e”, means “once during a lifetime”, and this inspires Sato.

Tadao Ando's wonderland

 Tadao Ando and his world

Tadao Ando

安藤 忠雄

Born in Osaka in 1941, a Japanese self-taught architect who spent his early years as a professional boxer and truck driver, until he changed course, taught himself architecture and eventually became one of the Great Fathers of contemporary architecture. He does not even have an architecture degree. But who really cares? He said:

„It wasn’t that I had any great dream of being an architect. I just wanted to make things. Whether it was furniture, painting, interior design, or architecture. I just wanted to create something.” – Tadao Ando

Highlights of Amazon TOKYO Fashion Week ss17 YOSHIKIMONO

Listopad 20, 2016
Amazon Tokyo Fashion Week SS17

This year TOKYO FASHION WEEK kicked off  by Japanese rock star and fashion designer Yoshiki of X-Japan. He took to the stage to perform music in an artificial rain as models strutted by on the runway in his futuristic kimono creations under the name YOSHIKIMONO .

Unfortunately I missed the first day of Amazon TFW ss17. As it was probably the biggest day of Tokyo Fashion Week, I promised myself that I was not going to skip any days, especially the first and last days, the next time I go. This year „Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo” changed into “Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo” which was a bit of a surprise to many people.
Yoshkimono show was „exclusive invitation only” show, mostly for Japanese media.

YOSHIKI is famous for sensational and dazzling fashion shows, which also feature live performance by himself. As you can see from the photos, this one lived up to everyone’s expectations and more! Yoshikimono designs are based on traditional Japanese garments, which have been given a sophisticated and exquisite, avant-garde and modern twist.

„The entire kimono industry has been in crisis,” -Yoshiki, whose family ran a kimono shop, said. „Despite pros and cons (to) my approach, I think Yoshikimono is meaningful in terms of awakening interest (in kimonos).”

My personal favorite one is the red metallic kimono. Which is yours?

I’m living in neon lit world..

Gradually neons are disappearing from Japanese streets, being replaced by LED signs .

The neon-drenched streets are my favorite places of  Japan. You can feel like the time has stopped there…. 

For this styling I combined street style with traditional kimono jacket called haori – with beautiful pattern -it cost only 5$ and you can buy them in Kyoto in many vintage stores which I will write about in my next post! For now take a look at the old school area called KYOBASHI in Osaka.

I’m wearing:

KaneZ Tokyo cap

Stussy pink top S/S 2016

Kimono jacket-Haori

Nike Air Max Limited edition with Kanji

Nike shorts

Socks- Spinns
