Reed Krakoff Flagship Tokyo

22/11/2011, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Handbags, Reed Krakoff, Tokyo

If you’re bound for Tokyo one of these days, you MUST visit Reed Krakoff flagship store in Aoyama. It’s H-U-G-E! I’m surprised by the amount of space the store occupied. I’m also surprised when I found out that it’s the brand’s first standalone store — they opened in Tokyo first before New York. Anyhoo, they have a rather generous selection of chic handbags in various colours and materials. My personal favourite? The black Boxer bag in ponyskin but alas, the price tag was a bit outside my range so I settled for my Kit bag.

Roberto Cavalli Tokyo

Back to my Fashion’s Night Out 2011 Tokyo diaries… it was so nice seeing Mr. Cavalli once again. I simply had to praise him for his smashing spring/summer 2012 womenswear show and of course, his stylist Panos Yiapanis who styled the collection.

Fantastic Fendi

15/11/2011, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Fendi, Fur, Tokyo

I really had an awesome time at the Fendi boutique in Omotesando. I must say it was one of my favourite stores appearances during Fashion’s Night Out 2011 in Tokyo last week.

When I walked in, snap-happy British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Shulman whipped out her camera, took pictures of me and jokingly said, “the tables have turned!” It was our first bonding moment. Vogue Australia’s Kirstie Clements (who was my seat neighbor at a previous Fendi fashion show) was also there. I couldn’t stop myself from telling her that I love how Aussie Vogue’s been KILLING IT lately with gorgeous covers and editorials. She told me they have a new Art Director.

Furs, as you know, are integral to Fendi’s DNA. Alessandra, Fendi Japan’s CEO made me try this gorgeous dyed mink fur coat. It was divine. Absolutely D-I-V-I-N-E.

Casa Michael Kors

11/11/2011, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Michael Kors, Tokyo

One of the stops I made during FNO Tokyo was the Michael Kors store in Omotesando where Michael himself held court. I’m so happy that I met him once again!

I’ve been to his office in New York and let me tell you, he’s all about luxury. I remember doing a re-see of his fall 2011 collection and I saw racks upon racks of gorgeous furs, exotic skins (remember my Michael Kors python coat) and garments with the highest quality fabrics. The Michael Kors woman is chic, super chic! It’s all about the Michael Kors cashmere sweater, it’s all about the Michael Kors cashmere coat. I’ve been keeping track of his work since he used to design for Celine! I must have been what, fifteen years old? Oh how fast time flies…

Costume National Aoyama Complex Tokyo

06/11/2011, Costume National, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Tokyo

My first stop on this year’s Fashion’s Night Out Tokyo festivities was the massive Costume National Aoyama Complex. The handsome Ennio Capasa gave me a personal tour of the ultra chic superstructure which contains the Costume National flagship store (I’m a fan of the brand; they make terrific coats and shoes), an art gallery and a cafe with a spectacular living wall. I had a hard time maintaining myself when he showed me the outdoor jacuzzi.

I’m back in Tokyo! It’s been two years since I last went here and I’m very happy to be back, with my gurl Rumi, this time around. I love being here. I love the energy, the hustle and bustle and of course, the mysteriousness of the city.

Tiger by James McFay [Movie Trailer]

Have you ever heard of this film, Tiger? It’s a story of two lonely models who fell in love in Japan.

I need to see this film and I can’t wait to get the DVD in the mail. Support indie filmakers and buy the DVD by clicking HERE.

Speaking of Tokyo, there’s a chance of me going back to Japan for a few days later this year. I don’t have specific dates but it’s gonna be around December.
