TOKYO'S COLOURFUL STYLE WARRIORS

Spring time is here once again. Almost unsure it would ever make an 
appearance. It has been gone for so long. We'd almost forgotten what 
daylight was all about, let alone what it looked like. Fortunately we 
have some key reminders here to share with you all. These colourful 
style bites hail from Tokyo, from around the Harajuku 
and Shibuya districts, where teenagers show no fear of colour. 
In fact, they are highly trained and skilled warriors of style, and their 
most effective weapon of choice is that of colour.






Fluffy Times Are Here Again

Remember that mind altering show from Gucci. The Fall/Winter 2015
 show with clearly new direction to that of Frida Giannini and Tom Ford's 
vision.
Many would say that the new vision of the company may well be too 

much, but we are not here to question, well not today we are. 
The show of discussion had classic Loafers and sandals all covered
 or in part with what some would call fluff and others real fur. 
That's fluffy slippers with a Gucci Price tag.
Now I know what you're all thinking. The ideas from that show's 

choice display of fur accessories, and that of Margiela, JTK Zheng 
and of course those heels from Dsquared2, the latter few would 
argue with the choice of adornment. They all came from the 
street style seen around Tokyo about a year ago. Like the slippers 
so many teenagers arouund Harajuky wore last summer. 
The ones below and above are from super cool shop and brand Bubbles




Classic Decora Style. Don't be fooled. This young teenager is a fierce warrior
 of style. See how she wields her colours like a weapon. She’ll be up in
 your face challenging your sense of style with some form of face off, 
and it will all kick off with that humble cute and innocent smile of hers.

Come prepared we say, for you’ll be challenged frequently as you walk 
around Harajuku. The only challenger these teenagers fear is that of global
 and supreme champion of colour. The Super Style Warrior that is Iris Apfel
 of New York.

 Are they not totally wild with excitment.


Here's some more excitement. The amaziing Monica Chong. She's the 
Artistic Director of Cutler and Gross spotted on day 2 of London Fashion Week.
Monica was the first to intoroduce me to the brand Bionda Castana many years

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW 2015 DAY 2

London Fashion Week

Well it's that time of the year again when all the world's media descend
upon a humble little town called London. Apparently this historical city
has some weight as a big hitter in the mighty arena of the world of fashion.
Where great titans slug it out with their offerings of style from their
champion designers. Great masses take part in viewing this grand
spectacle, where battles in themselves are fought over the right or indeed,
privilege to view certain bouts of visual entertainment on show at
grand arena's where the performances are quite something to behold.
  
Of course here at JSTREETSTYLE we rarely show you such proceedings.
The shenanigans that take place, the great fights for viewing rights to these
visual bouts of entertainment as mentioned can appear quite vulgar at times.
We wouldn't wish such an onslaught to ones senses upon anyone, that is of course 
unless they have a sound constitution are are able to take such a pounding.
Many a time have fair maidens and damsels not to mention the warriors themselves
been seen in tears fleeing these arenas unable to cope.

Much more civilised are the proceedings around those establishments and on the 
near by streets. Fore this is where the populous dwell, the true warriors of style 
and they too do battle, but theres is is a much more gentile fight down with detail 
on a different scale to the gladiatorial titans marching in their spectacular arena’s.
The people have spoken and they do not speak with one but many voices.
However their language is that of style and it can be heard quite loudly,
even from inside the great arena's so much so that the great media
now fights for the viewing rights on coverage of what the masses now have 
to say.

Here are some of the peoples champions and their warriors of style at
London's Fashion Week on day 2 of the Autumn Winter show offerings.

We are tought that Gold and Silver are never to mix, yet the folks at Marni 
have gone and done so and to our benefit as you can see. We love these
stylish fringed brogues.


More foot candy this time by the award winning creative mastery of 

And this time from Valentino. These are true champions of the populus.
