Japan has always been close to me and have made a huge impact on my inspirations of today, after living there for a lot of my teenage years. And having much respect for their love of silk and floral textiles. Especially now after the disasters that have devastated Japan and the world these past couple months.
During the Spring/Summer of 2011 collections i was happy to see designers getting in touch with  their asian side. Designers like Kenzo and Dries Van Nouten  achieved the spirit of a fresh take on asian invasion with their floral chiffon prints, kimono silhouettes, and ‘Geta’ wedges that were gracing the runways.

Kenzo Spring/Summer 2011

Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2011

But it has never left the fashion world in the first place, it just keeps coming back greater and better. So this spring help and promote Japan and the rest of Asia, represent your support for those countries in need. Go to your nearest vintage shop and find yourself a feel good, comfortable kimono, pair it with some killah designer wedges…

Help Support Japan…
