Tokyo Diaries XXIII (Interlude)




Roman Tolici Blood, 2013

After a hot spa bath and endless shopping hours in blinking platform sneakers, I am resting in a Shinjuku hotel room watching a random TV program with a can of Kirin Grapefruit.

2. Craig Green Spring/Summer 2015

3. Yohji Yamamoto Spring/Summer 2015

4. Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2015

9. Julien David Spring/Summer 2015

10. Meadham Kirchhoff Spring/Summer 2015

Some of them are mandatory (Yohji, Comme, Undercover). Others share the same theme or spirit (Raf, Walter, Craig). Some will most probably only be available there but not here (Meadham Kirchhoff). The re-contextualisation of exotism has begun.
