Future Beauty

Two years ago I went to Japan for a holiday and it was one of the most memorable trips I have ever had. One of the highlights was going to Tokyo and checking out all the fashion. From the bustling shopping district of Shibuya to the crazy cool kids in Harajuku; Japanese fashion never ceased to amaze me.

The collection showcases stunning and extraordinary garments; which seem more like art pieces; from the early 1980s to today. The works of designers such as Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garcons), Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, Jun Takahashi, Hiroaki Ohya, Akira Naka, Tao Kurihara, Matohu, Hatra and mintdesigns all promise to leave you breathless.

So I styled this after my new Tartan leggings. Is it wrong to have a lust for leggings??! I own quite a few and think I may have a problem. 🙂
They always match so easily with my bags.I’m on a quest to stay BOLD during the cold and not fade to all black in the wardrobe department.
Happy Friday dressing!
