Leopard Tights x1

Tokyo really surprises me with that sudden change to spring. Looking back to my home tome in Western Germany, still beating degrees around 10, I feel stunned once again by this planet.

Cannot believe that with sitting in a plane for a little over 9 hours tomorrow, will bring me to summer in Australia.

How does your weather look like?

Pastel Green

If you post "green in fashion" into Google, you will receive around 1.580.000.000 scores. 

Reading about different brands launching campaigns and 
collection for a more environmental-friendly reasons.
Or health and ethical concerns. 

Amusing to see Berlin Fashion Week with the "Eco Fashion week" likewise on the top site of my google search.

Stripe Shorts x3

 Patterns and Stripes do not go along well?

I thought so at first, but was really surprised seeing that I fell in love instantly with that black based pattern and stripes clothes. 

Overall is black a pretty thankful and giving "color". One may argue, that black is no color, but the result of fully light absorption.

Basically the absence of color.

In 1982, launching Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo outside of Japan in Paris, their style in layering and especially black is described as turning point:

"At the heart of this nothingness was the color black. Black, at the time, was a subversive choice. It was the color of mourning, of subcultural rebellion, of emotional dissonance, of artistic distemper. It was the essence of the avant-garde." (read further here: Voguepedia)

Why do you choose black?

Stripe Shorts x2

And here we go for another stripe short outfit - spring is finally approaching. With temperatures around 20 degrees (according to the weather forecasts) and even more sun it enlightens one's soul. 

One post earlier I kind of declared my fascination for this freedom of choice we have in expressing ourselves with clothes, shoes and accessories. I am still wondering, when in the fashion world this time  started. 

Do you have any guesses?

Stripe Shorts x1

You may remember those stripe shorts from here. I thought of them with a lot of fun..

It may be my playful character, but I love to experiment and take seriousness out of outfits. Sure, I still like those elegant, clean chic styles. For me it is just amazing how easily we can adapt ourselves to one style and choose another direction in a few steps. 

Having no boundaries (but budget I guess) and being able to purchase almost everything, is one kind of freedom I am not about to give up. 

Pretty thankful for that revolutionary fashion empire unlike the e.g. 80s, as everything you could buy were a few type of pants, shirts and colours.

stripes surely like color

You may have realized, that I skipped a day.

Well.. yesterday was such a heavy storm in Tokyo I did not feel like going out, neither was there time for a spring outfit... But, patience was rewarded.

Today seemed to be one of these beautiful warm early spring days, with sun all over the place. Inspired me for something orange and b/w. Though I might have catch a cold after being surprised by heavy rain yesterday..
