「斉藤上太郎コレクション」JOTARO SAITO 2018 A/W

On Wednesday I went to see the new collection of kimono designer JOTARO SAITO at the Tokyo Fashion Week. 水曜日(2018年3月21日)に、東京ファッションウィークにて、着物デザイナーのJOTARO SAITO(斉藤上太郎)さんの新作発表を訪問しました。 Although the cherry blossoms started blooming and we had 22°C a couple of days back, on the day of the collection we had snow and heavy rain at only 2°C!! What are the chances? Haha! So instead of a silk kimono I had to go with something washable - how handy that I have a jersey kimono by JOTARO SAITO himself....

Fashion Week Tokyo AW16/17 – JOTARO SAITO

Today I went to see the new AW 16/17 kimono collection of JOTARO SAITO from Kyoto. After seeing his show last year, I was super excited about his new line of designs. Especially that he creates slightly "darker" kimono is what I love and the fact that he combines the very traditional art of wafuku with modern designs or small modern modifications which are not too much. 今日は着物デザイナー JOTARO SAITO(斉藤上太郎)の新コレクション秋冬16/17を見に行ってきました。 去年のショーを見てから大ファンになり、新しいデザイン着物をみるのは楽しみすぎました。斉藤さんのダークなデザインや伝統的とモダンのミックスはとても素敵です。   For today I picked a dark green antique tsukesage kimono with an...
