New from Japan’s Harayuma Trading Company comes this sharp men’s suit that (besides just looking sharp) fights H1N1 virus. Yes, you heard correct. THE SUIT FIGHTS SWINE FLU!
According to Junko Hirohata, “The suit is coated with the chemical titanium dioxide, which reacts to light to break down and kill the virus when it comes into contact with it.”
The suit will soon go on sale for about £365. For those of you on a tighter budget, you’ll be pleased to know that titanium dioxide is quite a common chemical, often found in toothpaste and costmetics. So if you’d like to improvise your own swine-flu-proof clothing, you can do so with a thin coat of toothpaste.
Avril Lavigne’s clothing line has hit Japanese shores. To be honest, it would probably do well too – her punkish gothic style coupled with a bit of lolita-ness would bode well with Japan’s street fashion. Black and pink, i think it would link.
Check this video out. I know the song is catchy, it’s one of the reason why i post this up on a Monday ;) But the main reason why is because I want to point out that tube suit she’s wearing in blue sequins.
And in heels.
I’ve been trying to find what she’s wearing online but I can’t. I’ll be grateful if anyone can point me to a place that sells these body suits. Okay, the reason why I want this is because I actually a Japanese girl wearing this kind of overalls before and she looked so cute. Maybe she was trying to set a trend but it just didn’t catch up.
Anyway the artist in the video, Fiest, she’s quite a bold woman isn’t she prancing around in that almost ridiculous suit it looks almost sexy :P
If you’re a big fan of Space Invaders, I’ll probably know how old you are. But it doesn’t matter, they have these cute and functional bag collection that I want to share. It’d be a great Christmas present for your sister or mom or for your baby’s diapers and bottle :D They don’t just have one design, you will have to check this page to see what other designs they have. Taito made sure they have every design covered.
What’s fashion without shopping? I found this site where you can find some pretty decent clothes for the young working adults in Japan. Too bad the site is entirely in Japanese so this is for those of you who speaks Japanese only. But even though I don’t speak Nippongo, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out how the site works after clicking around ;)
More new shoes are docking AsiaJam’s stores. I am quite and advocate for them because of the variety they offer for fashion from head to toe. Anyway these new shoes from AsiaJam looks like a copy from the latest fashion in footwear for a fraction of the price. Fraction may even be too harsh because $19 bucks for a pair of shoes is a steal. Don’t talk to me about quality, shopping in places like that are for decadence and momentary pleasure.
Anyway, i have some shoes here for show but to view more, check out their website.
Spend more than 70 bucks in AsiaJam and you’ll have free good bags up for grabs. You can choose from three styles of goodie bag – Cute, Sleek or Street in the note/comments section at your shopping cart.
What the bag consists is a free eye shadow from Korea and two mystery items that could be anything from hairclips to mousepads.
AsiaJams sells some pretty decent stuff I think. It’s got a certain standard of quality even though it’s cheaper than the average :)
Gucci is a symbol of high fashion. It is considered the most famous, prestigious, and easily recognizable fashion brands in the world. Hence, to own a Gucci bag, like every other female Tokyoite, is a fashion statement that screams “I AM FASHION CONSCIOUS (and cool)”. I know how the Japanese loveee branded stuff, especially Gucci so I am going to present Gucci’s latest handbags in the market. If you own one, good for you, if you don’t good for you. I can’t imagine what it’d do to your wallets. But nonetheless, don’t let the decadence stop you from owning the most famous and prestigious brand in the world in your wardrobe.
