In the heart of Shibuya, the iconic all-ways crosswalk that sends everyone on their way after exiting the JR train station. I’ve shot here so many times for both my blog and Japanese magazines but there’s always a new angle to take on this beautiful cluster#*(@. Japan is still July-warm but I’m inspired by the surely miserably hot salarymen in their suits to suffer a little in my toddler length sweaters. These are all pieces that I’ve been wearing over and over again in different equations – the Wang skirt I bought last winter is proving to still be useful, especially when updated with Phillip Lim’s new season mules (so comfortable they’re airportworthy) and super slick backpack.

How to wear your knits when it’s still way too hot but you really want to convince yourself it can be done. A couple days ago in the morning Omotesando sunshine wearing a couple new Tokyo purchases – very important to own the fuzziest cardigan around this season.

Hi from Tokyo! Some shots from Shibuya tonight headed to Yasutoshi Ezume, the last show of the first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo. I’m loving the look of stiff structured pieces coming together, I brought the look down to reality with generic canvas sneakers I picked up in Harajuku a few days ago.

She’s perch happy. Shot these before a warm night out in Paris – the car wash dress is gladiator-y without being too literal and the boots just badass in the way that things with nailhead studs tend to be. Easy pieces that go a long way. I’m currently fixated on the idea of wearing this dress casually, with all it’s shiny panels and sheer bits I feel like it’s just asking for it.
So that thing that people talk about where they need time to digest a collection with the purpose of achieving stuff like perspective and maybe even the ability to apply concepts to real life didn’t factor in at all with Isabel Marant’s FW. All that thin knit mating and inexplicable upper boob slit work and silver studding seemed immediately capable of filling multiple quietly gaping holes in my closet. And now the wait is over, really, finally over. This cozy shrunken sweater and warrior princess skirt were the standout pieces to me, shot on Pont Alexandre III for Seine nymph (those exist) vibes and also cause actually anything/one would look perfect there.
