Tokyo Fashion Week: Anrealage

The  first ever  Tokyo fashion week is in full swing and if I keep seeing collections like Anrealage, I'm eager to see the future of its fashionweek. Japanese designer Kunihiko Morinaga, took an architectural  and geometrical  approach to his spring 2013 collection for Anrealage.  It was interesting to see the cutout  and glow in the dark shapes of actual garments. They were clothes, but its cool that he made references to clothing within the clothing. Hopefully it's not too confusing. These are a couple of my favorites.

Stylist Video: Solange "Losing You"



Solange is coming out with a new album and I'm stoked since I've still been rocking her old album "Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams". I'm obsessed with her latest video for her single "Losing You." Shot in Capetown, South Africa it featured the always dapper Congolese Les Sapeurs.  I loved the way the video captured Africa's rawness and very cool fashionable vibe. I was brought back to Janet Jackson's Got 'til it's Gone" feat Q-Tip and Jonie Mitchell.







Here are some very fashionable scenes

Caged Bird: Alexander McQueen Spring 2013

Paris Fashion week just wrapped and I have to say it was thrilling. Alexander McQueen show was a showstopper. I fell in love with the amazing hats and caged bodice incorporated which accentuated the models waist.  Creative director Sara Burton, took us back to the hay days of the late Lee Alexander McQueen.  Right away I was reminded of one of my all time favorite poems "I know why the caged bird sings" By Maya Angelou. Here is an excerpt from the poem

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.











                                                   Freedom should never be taken for granted.
