Street yet Elegant
“KOCHÉ is the brand from Paris based on the concept “COUTURE TO WEAR”. They bring couture techniques and street style essences together, and their ready-to-wear collections are getting much attention these days.
KOCHÉ presented a collection on the street of Harajuku during last Tokyo Fashion Week. So many girls, including the designer’s friends and random models from the street, joined the show, holding lanterns on their hands. And their show was very fantastic enough to surprise the world.
You can enjoy the best part of KOCHÉ’s designs by wearing a top with frill and lace. If something for everyday life is needed, this coat will be a better piece for you to have than the top. It is a basic work coat that you can simply style; but the inside of the coat has crocodile textile that is symbolizing KOCHÉ.”
Only One Shop in Japan
“LAILA is the place where I often get impressive experiences. When there was only one store in Tokyo,
I bought my vintage T-shirt vintage T-shirt that I’d been looking for so long there, and it became the most luxurious thing I’d ever bought. The shopping experience taught me how exciting it was to have an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. At the same time, though, the most expensive T-shirt in my wardrobe kind of made me lose the sense for money.
The latest thing I found at LAILA TOKYO today is jewelry from Coyote Negro. It’s an upcoming small brand based in NY, and their style includes somehow primitive essence in it. In Japan, LAILA is the only place where sells their items, so that it seems very special and exclusive. All the rarity makes me feel like getting their goods so bad.”
