Name's Aly, I am a geeky girl going to school for fashion design.
This blog will mostly be filled with things of inspiration, interest and things that amuse me.
Went out for some coffee with friends today! I bought light pink/dark pink fading tights to match with my lovely wig from shojomonsta♥ The rilakkuma necklace is from weeabootique, OP is Moitié, shoes are Bodyline and everything else is offbrand :3
Mamechiyo describes her kimono as modern landscapes, where the Eastern and Western worlds collide. Her kimono are akin to puzzle pieces, bridging disparate moments in history: both contemporary and classical. Often coordinated with different obis depending on the occasion, Mamechiyo’s creations mirror significant shifts in the global imagination.
There are no boundaries for Mamechiyo; the old and the new worlds stand side by side, illuminating what it means to live in an increasingly intimate world, where memories of the past and dreams of the future are inescapably entangled. As we share more of our lives with the rest of the world, we cannot help but be energetically transformed by these cross-cultural exercises of style and sensorial didactics. Text by Beth Lauck.
The pictures we are happy to publish were taken in Amsterdam, new home of Mamechiyo, and are a collaboration between Mieko Ueda and Mamechiyo.
[edited to remove the plural “s” on kimono— it is a Japanese-source word and is thus an uncountable noun, like “deer”, “fish”, or “milk”.]
