YowaYowa Camera

Natsumi Hayashi is a photographer who lives in Tokyo. She “photographs mainly levitating self-portraits (and cats not levitating)” as described by the artist herself.
Here are some examples of her work that I love. You can see more on her website www.yowayowacamera.com where she also explains in great detail how she creates her photographic works.

Isabel Marant RTW SS14

These are some of my favourite pieces from the Isabel Marant SS14 Collection. I’m actually in Love with the Entire Collection. It’s so soft and feminine, romantic but incredibly classic, modern stylish too. The colours are to die for. And the dresses…I want them all. The shoes? They are mad. They look like Peter Pan went to Harajuku and turned into a Rock Chic along the way (from Paris!).

“Stuffed Animals Are Cooped Up!”

20131106-121903.jpg

Shut up! This is Cute!…I took this straight from > Japan-Community.com “Stuffed animals are cooped up! They want to ditch your bed and bookshelves. They want to see the world. They want to travel. And in Japan, they can.
Enter Unagi Travel. It dubs itself as a “travel agency for stuffed animals.” For the past three years, 38 year-old Sonoe Azuma has been taking stuffed animals on vacation and day-trips. This allows the owners of the stuffed animals, some of which are physically impaired, to live vicariously through the plush toys.
Travelogues are uploaded to Facebook, where the owners can follow what activities their stuffed animals are up to. Stuffed animals that participate get a commemorative photograph, along with a CD-ROM filled with pics and precious memories”. End.

Cool or Wacky? I think Crazy Cool! I still have a huge boxful of all my stuffed toys stored in our family garage from when I was little. Actually they all texted me the other day….Blindey (he’s a mouse who lost his eyes) said he was desperate for some time in the sun. PS: these pics, LOL LOL LOL!! Right?

Places To Go: Harajuku, Tokyo

20131102-011627.jpg

Another thing that I’m fascinated with, Harajuku. Mostly, um Everything! Here are some images taken at the district. Harrow Innovation! If you like what you see, Tokyo Fashion on FaceBook is a great place to start…they share and take really cool photos. PS: This IS NOT a Halloween Post, it’s what an ordinary day in Harajuku looks like.
From Wikipedia: Harajuku (原宿 “meadow lodging”) is a district in Shibuya ward, Tokyo Prefecture.
The general name of the area from Harajuku station to the Omotesando area. According to the current Japanese addressing system, the neighbourhood ‘Jingu-mae’ is included in this greater area. In the 1990s there was an influx of famous overseas fashion brand flagship store openings. At the same time, new fashion trend shops spread in the residential areas of Jingu-mae blocks 3 and 4, and the area came to be known as Ura-Harajuku (‘Harajuku Back Streets’). In 2006, Omotesando Hills was opened. In 2008 the Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line was installed and is expected to further expand in the future.
