Backtracking to Tokyo and the most action packed night of my weeklong trip. Typhoons exclusive. I had the best time toasting the beautiful show with one of the cutest people alive and Murua producer Momoko Ogihara, stylist for the show Kate Lanphear, and Tokyo friends old and new at labyrinthine club Sound Museum Vision. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate and how essential for life are the sunglasses?

One of my best Sundays this month was a wide open sunny one spent walking around Shimokitazawa, which I’m going to hate myself for describing as the Williamsburg of Tokyo but there it is. Just two subway stops from my Shibuya safety zone, this area is a complete requirement for anyone visiting the city. It’s full of tiny alleyways and things that charmingly look like they’re going to collapse and everything that you want to decorate your home with except it’s too pointy for suitcase transport. Make sure to visit Village Vanguard because they sell everything your subconscious has thus far failed to will into existence. I carried the Goyard tote I got in Paris to fill up with my purchases and wore a mock necked nude dress from The Dayz Tokyo whose shop in Laforet I weirdly visited multiple times. All about the simple silhouette and the ease with which it can be dressed down.
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.
