Cruising the RED.
Styling_Yuka Akaishi (Tsuji）

but it certainly is.
Red obtains something that grasps girls’ hearts.
Yuka Akaishi, a stylist, selected 31 new red items where she shows us her strong passion on red!
Maison Kitsuné in this season is getting to be more “American” than ever before. The cotton dress absolutely acquires an elegance, but at the same time, the shoulder lines generate an intensity somewhat like Wonder Woman.
