Today was a day of joy and sadness. It started off on an uplifting beat with a show by Christian dada that was both on-point and challenging (in a good way) at the same time. If this is one road that the new generation of Japanese fashion is taking, then we should get ready to run it!
Then a few hours later it was announced via WWD Japan that their venerable editor in chief Kaz Yamamuro died this weekend from a heart attack.

He was one of the most open minded and supportive people in this industry. He went to see young people’s fashion shows and always even treated me as an equal-never once patronizing me, and in fact was always laughing at my stupid jokes and was genuinely interested in what I had to say. Last I saw him was at a private seminar with Elle Girl editor in chief Sumin and iSook this year, and before that the overworked man showed up to my “Gangnam Style” flash mob in Shibuya last season to participate unanounced! I had casually mentioned I was doing it as we sat next to each other at a fashion show, bitching about the dearth of brands in the world because some people have too much money but no taste…. *ahem* he talked real. And at my flash mob, he was undoubtedly the sharpest dressed, in what appeared to be a tailored brand-spanking-new full-body nike running suit. It was a sight to see.
May he rest in peace, and his enthusiasm for fashion will hopefully carry on to the next…
Aside from that bit of a wrench, today was a wonderful day. I celebrated life in the fashion lane by wearing an outfit from Bangkok-based brand Wonder Anatomie, one of my favorites. He specializes in kaleidoscope prints, 3D accessories and vinyl exoskeleton parts. I paired it all with my United Nude x iris Van Herpen shoes for a bit of a sporty touch.
