TOKYO CITY GUIDE : SHOPPING / FASHION INSIDER
– I think Japanese girls are all the same now.
Tomoko is certainly his biggest fan. Humoursly, she said: “I want marry him“, a quick look at her Mickey watch. Tomoko and her husband Katsuhiro are the managers of Vermeerist Beams shop in Harajuku.
A kind of boudoir presenting a colorful outfits and accessoiries selection of Japanese and overseas fashion designers, like the great Manish Arora of course. Funny, Tomoko and I were at one of the shows of Manish at Cique d‘Hiver, without knowing each other! Small fashion world!
– I was at Manish first show in the London Fashion Week, four years ago. Very Bright colors: I’ve bought few pieces very difficult to sell in Tokyo.
– Here young people have no energy and originality to get dressed. Three reasons: the parents buy their clothes. Magazines are bad: same styling, not interesting. Except the Nihon Vogue. And they spend all their money in mobile phones.
The grim reality? We laugh.
– The hype Aoyama is the trendiest area in town to me,
says Tomoko. Where bash shops have incredible architectures. Her choice: Comme des Garçons, Corso Como and Loveless. And serious, Tomoko concludes with:
– Fashion is my life.
