Coffee shop, short break after a traditional fabrics hunting with Christophe Prebois, the fashion designer of Brutals (stylish shirts for men).

A notebook on table : sketches and draws of Christophe’s travel in Japan. Some sketches look like photos. Others remind me the rythm of fabrics prints. I look at them, take pictures. Such beautiful illustrations!

Street Style

“Let’s walk in the woods, while the little blue hood … there! ” A week of real street looks: snapshots on the board below.

Between kawaii kawaiiiiiiii pink and holder Stockings in Harajuku, multicolored polka dots and green boots in Omotesando and eighties revival with slippers in Yoyogi Park. Coach, I sign for another week!

The Rockers of Yoyogi Park Vs The Shibuya Girls Fashion Shows

Right, I’ve often met the most xtreme rockers! Here are the dancers rockers of Yoyogi Park. Impressive mix of unique hairstyle with acrobatic jumps. They are the real “characters” of Yoyogi Park.

It was reckoning without the intrusion of Kawaii Land: why do these fashion teens rush with such frenzy? Fashion shows open to public.

If you want to check out the Shibuya girl style (the fashion tribe not the brand): visit the famous department store 109… in Shibuya of course!

Me, I can’t stand the bad techno musics loudly played in the differents shops there. Plus the chorus of non stop « sumimasen » shouted by salespersons. And I don’t like the outfits too, pretty boring. Harajuku is much more fun!

SMDB is not Tektonik !


Last January, « 2001: A space odyssey » deafening white light, of a moribund « Who’s Next », last day, last hours, not so many people.


I follow the SMDB’s producer Nadine, in different paths of the fair of the youth’s fashion ultimate trends . Most of the stands are kept by « tired » thirties-forties years old, looking like bling bling younger brothers forever. So what about the SMDB ? Now, I still haven’t got any idea. We are walking quickly between colorful trademarks, looking for the dancers (serial shoppers too).


We found the boys and a not quiet spot to start the interview. Three nice teens (18-19 years old) that move a lot their arms on Tektonik… Sacrilege : not Tektonik ! Tektonik is the registered name of a party. I’m learning. So three young people that convulse on a techno dance floor : nothing really new say older brothers ! Ok Ok, could you imagine their little U Tube video was watched by more than four millions people : it’s worth an interview, isn’t it ? A slap to the older brothers !


During Bayonnes celebrations, Jack Herror, Spoke et Maestro discover « the electro music, for fun ». They enjoy « the music first » and in club : « they free arms and invent steps ». Then they create the « Milky Way » : each one invents his own choreography, according to his own personality. Free style. I add : according to his stamina and suppleness ! Because our three « wanna be stars» dancers are sportsmen first :  an acrobat and a football and a skater. And after taking dance courses, they make the choreography of the last Lorie’s video (a successful singer for chidren and early teenagers). Don’t laugh, kids love it . And I inform me and master few arms movements. I apply their « we don’t dance, we are the dance » motto. Respect ! But this is my absolutely exclusive privacy between my mirror and I !


Many events : right now in Japan they are shooting their music promo, then a European tour, a DVD and a mini album produced by musicians. Where they do voices and bring their different music influences : Rock sixties-seventies for Maestro, minimalist Jazz electro for Jack Herror and « Moon Walk » Hip Hop for Spoke. Fine: I said all ! A planning full of dance, sweat, improbable T-shirts trademarks (I’ll make you discover), girly fans and fluorescent techno kids ! And do you think they realize their success ? « We don’t realize. That’s weird ». Please don’t change boys !


Dear SMDB, I’ve still waited my Milky Way personal training, to play on my blog. See ya guys !
