Months of Fashion Weeks are already far away by the time we are writing this post. We have come across so many interesting looks either from menswear or womenswear. We often try to get inspirations from the runways to be à la mode, expressing our passion for Fashion in our Look of the Day posts but we feel like we don't push the enveloppe as far as we want to in our everyday looks. We don't reveal our true-selves even if in the Love List, we give you a hint of what is our own aesthetics. What do you think? Our purpose is not to become fashion extremistas, but only to stay true to what we are, what we love i.e. a mix of androgyny attitude that we combine with contemporary menswear pieces (and sometimes we buy pieces from womenswear because we love the idea of no borders). We feel like it's a good definition of our style and now that you are aware of it, we will try to be honestly close to it.
People get their own definition of modernity, revealing their own personality. You have yours, we have ours. According to our aesthetics, being modern is knowing what have been done before and being aware of what is going on all around the world. It's the perfect way to udapte our wardrobe and as we said before: to be " à la mode".
So, come on, take a look on the Tokyo Fashion Week which close this blitz season. Do we need some new fresh over-styling shapes, definitely avant-garde, to nourish our greedy appetites for non-boring attitudes? Yes, we do! We always do! Facetasm Spring/Summer 2013 Collection is the answer to what we were looking for in the far far East. Facetasm proposes a young pop street wardrobe with androgynous layered looks. We want to learn the art of the japanese way of layering textures, colours and fabrics like they do, even if it's over over styling, it is actually a fashion show. These women and men are so sexy! The question of beauty is always subjective, wondering what is ugly for you or not. Ok you are not ready for the leggings for men, neither are we. You are not ready for these shoes outside of a golf ground, we are. Perhaps Facetasm gives you an idea of the way we want to be dressed. Here are the looks we like the most:
Susy Menkes of The Herald Tribune said recently in an interview, what shall not ever be ready-to-wear for men, is all that screams statement attitudes like skirt for men. Ok right, maybe men are not ready to wear skirt or skort (mix of a short and a skirt), but men can be a little adventurous, right? Do we really want to be wearing a tailored jacket, a white shirt and pants for the rest of our lives? Do we really want to be boring ? If we don't, are we really reaching the point of fashion integrista ? The real question is what do you really want to be? Do you always want to make it right? Do you want a revelation, an epiphany ? Men can dress like Women and Women can dress like Men for ages! That's why it always looks Modern!
Thanks to Japanese Streets Website, one of the blogs that we religiously follow, we found these sexy looks.
