A collection of 5 different jersey co-ords, an extremely popular fashion item!

09.December.2016 | FASHION / FEATURES

Hi everyone, it’s Babukabon.

I’m already at my 4th article! *clap clap*

I look forward to writing more for you!

 

Let’s get straight to it. Do any of you wear jerseys?

They’ve become something of a fashion item these days.

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that not many people wear them for sports anymore.

But I think it’s difficult to wear it as anything other than that.

And that’s where this article comes into play!

I’ve carefully selected a number of outfits that include jerseys.

If you’re someone that wants to try wearing one with an outfit but aren’t quite sure how to co-ordinate it, please try using this collection for reference?

*A new combination!

This outfit has a shirt, a knitted vest, black shoes… and a jersey!

A jersey used together with a more mature, adult style. How new!

It works well with a casual style.

*Goes together perfects! Now this is a jersey co-ord

Jerseys work really well with the simple-is-best motif.

They are good for those times when you feel like you want to wear something light!

*A jersey under a checkered skirt?!

The staff over at KAKAVAKA are really good references for looking stylish.

The person in the photo is yui and shes has a jersey underneath her checkered skirt! She’s a real pro…!

Combining a jersey with a wide skirt – it just makes you want to try it out yourself, doesn’t it!

*Upcycled jersey!

This jersey has been upcycled to have sleeves made from knitted fabric! It’s so cute!!

It seems like it was purchased at Honwakapappa, a shop in Osaka.

Upcycling sleeves is something you can do at home too!

If you’re not satisfied with just a simple jersey, then have a go at upcycling one!

*Waistcloth jersey

This co-ord is by Yabe Yuna.

This is a simple style with a sleek Stussy t-shirt and a jersey tied around her waist! Her waist is so thin!

Her top half is shapely and her platform shoes give volume to her legs.

 

So, what did you think?

From simple outfits to new and original ones, you can co-ordinate jerseys in many different ways.

There were lots of different kinds??

I’d be happy if you can use this as reference!

That’s all for now! See you next week〜!

  • Tokyo Stroll: Shopping & Sightseeing with Mozuku-kun the Dog #5 – Uzumako Ceramic Art School

    12.July.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

    It’s been a minute since we last ventured out with Japanese model Yuna Yabe and her beloved pet pup Mozuku. If you’re new to this feature, Yuna Yabe takes her trusty partner Mozuku to various hot spots in Japan that you can enjoy with your pet dog. Their relationship continues to deepen in this priceless experience.

    Today, Yuna and Mozuku head to Uzumako Ceramic Art School which is close to Shiba Park. You can get a good view of TokyoTower from this famous park.

    What’s unique about this art school is that visitors are allowed to take their pets with them. So this means you can take your dog with you to do some ceramics!

     

    Yuna has always had an interest in ceramics. And what better way to experience creating something than with her partner in crime Mozuku! With him tottering beside her, she headed through the entrance curtain with a spring in her step.

    When you enter the classroom, there are lots of examples of pottery ware lining the shelves. The room has that smell of craftsmanship which lingers as you begin the class with a demonstration by the teacher. Once you have your apron on and are fired up to begin, it’s time to start.

     

    The work begins with kneading the clay to make its firmness uniform. This step helps prevent air bubbles from forming.

     

    Yuna asked the teacher many different questions as she enjoyed kneading her clay. “Where does ceramic work originate from?” “What kind of things to other dog owners make when they come here?”

    “What’s Yuna up to?” Mozuku’s puzzled face seemed to imply as he listened to Yuna and the teacher talk.

    Yuna turned to Mozuku and said to him, “I’m going to make you a food bowl!” It seemed like the message got through as his face read, “Looks like my owner is making something just for me.”

     

    Yuna wet her hands with some water and began forming a hole in the centre of her clay bundle. The hole forms and gets bigger as the pottery wheel spins.

    Next, she used both of her hands to ensure the thickness of the bowl was even all the way around.

    “Amazing! The shape of the clay changes in an instant!”

    By adding a little bit of pressure the pile of clay can change shape rapidly. It’s like a living thing.

    “It’s like the clay is my own child. I wanna wrap it up!”

    Once the shape is formed, Yuna cut around the edges. She is a skilled individual, she got the hang of it straight away.

    Mozuku sat right beside Yuna, quiet and curious.

    “Is it my turn yet?”

    He seemed itching to have a go at making something himself too.

    He watched over Yuna’s work from atop the table.

    “I wanna try spinning the wheel too!”

    Mozuku in fact had the most important job of all. Yuna popped a wooden mould onto his paw and stamped a paw print into thebottom of the bowl.

    “There we go!” said Yuna

    Mozuku mustered all of his strength to make his mark, his facial expression unusually serious as he carried out his big task.

    Time to check if the print was done properly!

    Here’s the final product―Mozuku did a great job!

     

    Their teamwork paid off as they were able to create a really cute dog bowl. The tiny footprint is packed with pet love. The art school actually sells a lot of different cute and stylish pet items but the owner making their own makes it unique―the only one in the world.

     

    If that love is able to get through to your pup, the food they eat from the bowl is sure to be even more delicious.

     

    Thanks for your help, Mozuku.

    “I can’t wait to fire it!” Yuna’s excitement was peak from start to finish. She was very satisfied after the class finished.

     

    After two weeks of waiting, the bowl was completely finished.

    Why not try creating something unique special for your own pet―together with them?

  • The days are still cold as February draws to a close, but I want to get out of this rut of wearing winter clothes every day! If you feel the same as I do, why not pick out a new pair of glasses in preparation for spring and discover a new you?

     

    clear frames and their natural appearance

    I want to feel refreshed so I head to a record store to search for a new record. I might try out a genre I don’t normally listen to.

    I’ve gone for a casual look today with a sweater, jeans and sneakers. I add a scarf for style so I don’t look too rough.

    For those who like unique things but aren’t confident with challenging themselves to something new, then I recommend getting glasses with clear frames. At a glance they look difficult to co-ordinate with, but they’re in fact a fantastic choice that go with anything. It’s good to try out things you normally wouldn’t go for to make you feel refreshed.

    Model’s Glasses: Zoff – ¥7,000 (Before Tax)

    Left: Zoff – ¥7,000 (Before Tax) / Right: Zoff – ¥7,000 (Before Tax)

     

     

    rough brought to life with glasses

    On my days off I usually hole up at home but today I went to chill at a local cafe.

    I go for a rough look with a hoodie, checkered pants and sneakers. The colours are my silhouette are rough but this is balanced by my brow-framed glasses.

    This type of frame of course goes well with tight, well-balanced looks, but why not try something different by combining with a rough outfit?

    Model’s Glasses: JINS – ¥12,000 (Before Tax)

    Left: OWNDAYS – ¥10,980 (Before Tax) / Right: Zoff – ¥9,000 (Before Tax)

     

     

    playing around with unique glasses

    Wearing a jacket set-up like this makes you feel sophisticated. Grab a coffee during your work break, straighten your back and get through the last day of the week.

    While an outfit like this will make you feel proper, paying attention to the size and material while taking into account the overall balance will have you looking even more dapper.

    Since the outfit is so neat and trimmed you’ve gotta go with a quirky pair of glasses. This gives a playfulness.

    my new standard

    Everyone has their ‘go-to’ outfits. By adding just some little changes to your go-to you can experience a whole new you.

    My long-sleeved trench coat coupled with the loose pants makes for a tight balance. Combining this with glasses that have a defined colour and shape brings the whole mood of the look together.

    When I look in the mirror, I see an unfamiliar me. A new me.

  • Rikako Ōya’s #OOTD – The Latest Fashion Trends in Japan (January 2019)

    24.January.2019 | FASHION / FEATURES

    #OOTD is fashion-lover Rikako “Ricopin” Ōya’s featured series on MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON where she exhibits the latest fashion from Japan. This will be the final entry to the long-standing and popular series which has taken place over a year already!

     

    Ricopin’s crowning glory theme is a favourite colour (or colours) of hers: rainbow. In the final outfit of the article in which she makes up a look with her favourite items on the month she incorporates red as the main colour, her absolute favourite colour.

     

    90’s mix littered with juicy colours

    Ricopin stylishly layers yellow, orange and blue in this look which elicits a feeling of freshness and energy. Compact sizing of each item brings the entire outfit together instead of it looking too loud. The half zip sweatshirt and coach jacket gives us that 90’s mood.

    Aymmy in the batty girls: Boa Coach Jacket ¥24,000, Shaggy Neck Knitwear ¥13,000, Checkered Skirt ¥14,000 / Everything else is a personal item of the stylist

     

    playing daring with colours and a men’s-like balance

    Combining the street styles of an oversized denim jacket and striped pants gives fresh expression when the jacket is striped and the pants are a bright colour. The white accessories and details also help to bring the entire outfit together.

     

    VOLCAN&APHRODITE Shibuya 109: Denim Jacket ¥25,000, Sunglasses ¥2,000 / Aymmy in the batty girls: Striped Knitwear ¥13,000, Striped Pants ¥17,000, Boa Waist Pouch ¥9,000 / T&P Shibuya 109: Sneakers ¥2,900 / Everything else is a personal item of the stylist

     

    open a lead with accented colours in a sporty look

    Ricopin went on a colourful adventure with the high neck cut and sewn, belt and hood which complement the black down jacket base. The purple pants are surprisingly not overly flashy so even if you add colours it never looks too much. Her shoes are thick-soled to give a nice balance in terms of volume.

     

    VOLCAN&APHRODITE Shibuya 109: Down Jacket ¥9,800, Corduroy Pants ¥6,980, Belt ¥980 / Candy Stripper: High Neck Cut & Sewn ¥6,800 / T&P Shibuya 109: Sneakers ¥2,900 / Everything else is a personal item of the stylist

     

     

    <Ricopin’s Thoughts>

    “I’ve always liked colour coordination and colourful clothes. Even in my recent outfits I’ve just worn red. My hair is blonde so I wear red clothing I get told I look like [Japanese comedian] Kazlaser [laughs]. But in brightening up I’ve come to enjoy more standout colours than before. I also want to try out blue and green items this year! In winter I’m inclined to wear the same kind of outdoor wear and I tend to go with safe colours in my looks, but when I saw the clothes this time around I saw the light in how much you can play around with colours like this! Whether I’ll be popular in them is another thing entirely [laughs] but I love girls who wear colourful fashion. I feel wearing colours makes you feel more alive. The outfit I personally find to be the easiest to wear is the one with the black down jacket and yellow belt. Accessories add colour so you can change your impression easily, can’t you. My colour recommendation is without question red! Be sure to try colour coordinating yourselves this winter too♡”

    In this section, Style Leader Ricopin shows us what clothes she’s into right now. For her finale, she clads a winter colour look that is very her style. Her thing right now is an everyday style that combines casualness and cuteness.

     

    Owning the sizing with red as the main player

    <Interview>

    “This time I used my favourite colour, red, as the main colour! The down jacket is from Little Sunny Bite. This size which is like it’s hugging you is cute and warm and surprisingly goes with anything you combine it with so I’m all about it this year. Generally you’d wear the jacket zipped up with jeans and sneakers but this time I wanted to open the jacket up so I tried balance the volume with white socks and ballet shoes. I see these shoes so much in fashion on the streets and think it’s cute♡ The sweater is striped and is my kind of colourful. I want to carry on challenging myself to more colourful fashion this winter!”

     

    <Staff Comment>

    Thank you to all of you who have read this series over the past year. Ricopin’s style has refined with every article and she has shown growth. Her possibilities are endless!

  • Impactful accessories that will transform simple co-ords

    28.December.2018 | FASHION

    Whether it’s adding a white shirt to denim or something else as simple, basic styles are my weapon of choice. And certain impacting accessories can sometimes perk up a lonely-looking co-ord. Common items are fine with the clothes you choose. So which accessories will give that change of vibe?

     

    Wear piercings and earrings big

    Mild colours evoke that girly essence

    Larger accessories are the trend right now. I recommend those with an antique feel to them too. Piercings that sway make their colours stand out more and are perfect for that after-five date. Classic pearls are surefire so be sure to check some out.

    Flashy & edgy coloured scarves? Absolutely!

    Vivid coloured scarves go well with an outfit. Popular choices are geometric, oriental and checkered designs. If you’re looking in the used clothing section you’re sure to find some unique options – and for a good price.

    Top: ¥3,900 (Santa Monica Harajuku) / Bottom: ¥700 (Santa Monica Harajuku) / Left & Right: Stylist’s own belonging

     

    If you’re not good at hairstyling, don’t worry!

    Make them look twice with a barrette

    Barrettes will add a little sweetness to your hair. One barrette can make a big difference in those busy mornings so you look gorgeous. Even if you have a simple one, gold leaves a deep impression, and things like primary colours and retro, girly items fit grown-up women perfectly.

    27.December.2018 | FASHION / FEATURES

    #OOTD is a featured series here on MMN by fashion-lover Rikako “Ricopin” Ōya in which she showcases the latest fashion from Japan. This time she has picked out the perfect party style for this season and winter break where there are lots of events taking place. This dress-up style has that Ricopin taste to it, one that makes you stand tall while maintaining a uniqueness. Her final outfit in the list is made up of her favourite items of the month and is another dress-up style.

     

    feeling like a lady with fur

    Ricopin creates a special ladies style simply by wrapping a a long-furred coat around a fitted one piece. Points of note are the belt tied up high and heels which give variation to the overall look.

    MARTE: Fur Coat ¥21000, Used One Piece ¥8,800, Pumps ¥9,000, Bag ¥8,300
    Aymmy in the batty girls: Beret ¥9,000 / Everything else is a personal item of the stylist

     

    a touch of playfulness using individual motifs

    The balance between the classic party style look of a dress and fur coat which has a cat design on the dress and Furby design on the back of the coat creates even more of a playfulness. An air of sophistication is also made with the long fur coat and bag.

    Aymmy in the batty girls: Fur Coat ¥35,000, Pochette (Specimen) / Candy Stripper: One Piece ¥22,800
    MARTE: Barrette ¥5,800 / T&P Shibuya 109: Long Fur Coat ¥1,900 / 
    Everything else is a personal item of the stylist

     

    a girly co-ord that brings out pop-ness using colour variations

    This outfit co-ord is fashionable without feeling overdressed and is perfect for getting together with the girls, going out to the theme park and so on. Points to highlight are the down jacket and the boa skirt. The yellow tights give an accent to the look♡

    Aymmy in the batty girls: Down Jacket ¥24,000, Boa Skirt ¥17,000
    MARTE: Used Turtle Knit ¥5,300 / T&P Shibuya 109: Shoes ¥2,900 / Everything else is a personal item of the stylist

     

    <Ricopin’s Thoughts>

    “I actually haven’t been to many parties in my private time, so it felt really fresh dressing up like this and doing this shoot! The location was a hotel which was just too wonderful that I thought ‘This needs to be on Instagram!’ (laughs) I played with motifs and colours this time, but it was something different from what you’d wear on a regular date. It was party fashion, something to enjoy going all out and dressing up for getting together with stylist girls, so it was great. The mint fur coat feels grown up, and the cat one piece co-ord brings out a style that separates you from others. The down jacket is perfect for outdoor events. I wore colours and items that require courage too, things that would be born precisely because it’s a party, so I definitely want people to try challenging themselves! This is the New Year season and winter vacation with lots of events, so be sure to enjoy wearing something different from what you’re used to♡”

    In this section, Style Leader Ricopin shows us what clothes she’s into right now. This time she has created a special winter style that is girly but spicy.

     

    feeling yourself combining rock and girly styles

    “I like the leather skirt so much that I wanted to buy it the moment I saw it. It’s from NADIA in Harajuku. It’s leather but has ribbons and mini flairs. It has a sweet and spicy vibe that’s irresistible♡ I tried making a co-ord that you can head out with as is by combining the red frill skirt and leopard fur coat. It’s winter so I want to look girly from time to time, but there’s a rock [gal] in me I can’t shake off easily that’s left in (laughs). I dressed up in heels, but it will be cute in sneakers too, so I recommend this look!”

  • ON→ OFF slider co-ordination for working girls

    27.December.2018 | FASHION

    These co-ords are for the everyday working girl who can also dress up nice and easily into a post-work, after-five outfit. Complete a look from your casual office-wear by adding some small accessories and head out to enjoy your date or girls get-together.

     

    ONTIME

    A mannish look with a clean white one piece and pants

    A clean casual office outfit is life.

    Opening the front button of the white one piece creates style like a long shirt.

    When combined with coloured pants, everything comes together, and you look handsome.

     

     

    1. Hair back, manful

    Looking natural from all angles

     

    2. Pin heels, a girl’s icon

    3. A leather bag brings to bring it all together

     

    Always have yourself braced during ON TIME. Back straight, face dignified. Roll up the sleeves of your one piece just a little. Have your hair simple through and through with just one knot so it maintains the freshness of your white one piece look.

     

    OFFTIME

    Readying the concealed accessories in your bag for one’s best outfit

    Preparing those after-five accessories,

    those that don’t make even your work bag bulky.

    Clock out of work and head to the powder room!

     

    Transform entirely with these 3 stylish accessories while still in your ON TIME clothes

     

    1: Hypnotize with swaying hooped earrings

    2:Add class with a checkered scarf

     

    Scarves are an upcoming fashion accessory gaining more and more attention. The milk tea-coloured checkered design is elegant and refined and reflects well with the ON TIME one piece. Choosing larger earrings naturally makes your face look smaller too.

    Earring ¥4,500 (LATIA) / Scarf (stylist’s own belonging)

     

    Other Styling: Tying a scarf around one knot is good!

    Scarves have many different uses. Highlight your face by tying one in your hair and around a single hair knot. Show just a little of the design, like a floral pattern, and make a point to combine with a simple outfit for perfect results.
    Scarf ¥3,200 (Santa Monica Harajuku)

     

    3:A barrette perfect for the bustling streets

    A large barrette is after-five’s best friend. Using a marble type plastic barrette will make your hairstyle look mature. If you braid your hair almost to the end and add the barrette and decorative pins your hair will look on-point and stylish all the way around.

  • Rikako Ōya’s #OOTD – The Latest Fashion Trends in Japan (November 2018)

    22.November.2018 | FASHION / FEATURES

    #OOTD is a featured series here on MMN by fashion-lover Rikako “Ricopin” Ōya in which she showcases the latest fashion from Japan. The theme of her 10th entry is ‘Trad Style’ fused with school uniform elements. While these outfits are classy they are also nostalgic, calling back to older fashion, and are coordinated with that Ricopin taste. The final outfit in which she serves an outfit made up of her favourite items of the month has a slight air of retro-ness to it.

     

    a bad trad serving a fresh style

    Everyone has that one bad guy in class. He is Ricopin’s inspiration for this orthodox school look which she fashionably dons with a long T and baggy pants. The sleeve prints and typography on the belt give off an individualistically playful aura.

    Chicago Jingumae: Used Vest ¥3,900 / Ammy in the batty girls: Long T-Shirt ¥6,500, Checkered Pants ¥21,000, Belt ¥2,500, Beret ¥8,000

    *Everything else are the stylist’s personal items.

     

    the magic of an honour student’s colour coordination that keeps on wowing

    Ricopin takes the classic trad combo of tilden knitwear and a pleated skirt and spins her own twist on it by incorporating bright blue and leather. The yellow socks are a standout player in this overall chic getup.

    Chicago Jingumae: Used Knitwear ¥1,000 / Laforet Harajuku: High Neck Sweater ¥2,800 (F&A), Oxford Shoes ¥6,400 (F&A), Pleated Leather Skirt ¥8,400 (F.i.n.t) 

    *Everything else are the stylist’s personal items.

     

     

    an old-fashioned student outfit with a jumper skirt and stadium jumper

    Ricopin forges grace with the checkered jumper skirt and brown high neck knitwear and fur stadium jumper. Her classic retro style schoolgirl look is on point. The knee high socks and red pumps are also a perfect match.

    Laforet Harajuku: Fur Blouse ¥12,800 (F.i.n.t), Checkered One Piece ¥7,600 (F.i.n.t), High Neck Knitwear ¥3,800 (F&A), Ribbon Barrette ¥1,500 (F&A), Pumps ¥6,800 (an another angelus)

    *Everything else are the stylist’s personal items.

     

    <Ricopin’s Thoughts>

    “It felt really fresh wearing the trad style with a school uniform look in a cute way! My usual outfits are really rough and loose, but this kind of tight look is precious and makes you hold your head high. Especially the first outfit. I actually want to try wearing that kind of boyish, casual style myself! The usual thing to do is wear a shirt under the fest, but the long T gives it that bad boy look. Plus it went with my hairstyle so I liked it. Although the combination of the pleated skirt and knitwear in the second outfit are the school items the mature look is super cute♡ I also personally like casually adding different colours here and there. The final outfit is a classic girly look. It’s part of my image so it was easy to wear. Also, I’m really into brown right now.

    In this section, Style Leader Ricopin shows us what clothes she’s into right now. This time around she’s created an outfit entirely out of clothes from her favourite brand – Aymmy in the batty girls! Her look is centred around her most beloved item: overalls.

    my best co-ord, it was love at first sight

     

    <Interview>

    “I love this overall so much I’ve probably posted it so many times on Instagram (laughs). This was actually my first overall I bought. The shape is beautiful and the legs look long, and combining it with the knitted jumper from the same brand makes it the ultimate cute♡ If you’re not careful with overalls you end up looking childish, but having mature elements makes it wonderful, like the high waist design and ribbon on the back. It’s easy to get the balance right and it’ll go with any shoes, but when thinking about the knitwear and my own style I decided to go with platforms♡”

  • Rikako Ōya’s #OOTD (October 2018): The Latest Fashion Trends in Japan

    27.October.2018 | FASHION / FEATURES

    #OOTD is a featured series here on MMN by fashion-lover Rikako “Ricopin” Ōya in which she showcases the latest fashion from Japan. The theme of her 9th entry is ‘Outdoor Mix’ – a new style that combines outdoor clothing with something completely different to add new flavour to the outfit. At the end of the article, Ricopin also delivers her favourite items this month with a personal style of her own.

     

    bringing the spice with a fluffy boa

    Ricopin is donning a boa jumper―a classic material for outdoor wear―and the blue colour brings out that showiness even more. Combined with a leopard print skirt, this look brings a spicy street mix that’s in right now.

     

    Candy Stripper: Boa Upper ¥14,800 / Chicago Jingumae: Used Skirt ¥2,900

    *Everything else are the stylist’s personal items.

     

    unnatural strip colour combination = mood

    This warm and fluffy style has a real outdoor vibe brought out by the fur aviator hat and corduroy jumper skirt. This is layered with a striped multi-coloured knitted top to transform the outfit into a 90’s pop look.

     

    Candy Stripper: Striped Knitwear ¥15,800 / Jingumae Chicago: Used Jumper Skirt ¥3,900 / F.i.n.t: Boa Hat ¥4,800

    *Everything else are the stylist’s personal items.

     

    authentic outerwear x one piece = an unexpected matching

    Ricopin is enjoying unexpected match between an outdoor boa jacket and stylish one piece. The real surprise player in this look however is the waffle leggings. The trendy purple and mellowness of everything else works to bring the whole look together.

     

    Candy Stripper: Boa Jacket ¥23,800 / Aymmy in the batty girls: One Piece ¥16,500 / Jingumae Chicago: Used Leggings ¥1,900¥

     

    <Ricopin’s Thoughts>

    “I wonder, is ‘outdoor’ often thought about as outdoor festival? It felt refreshing working on my personal style [below] because I did a lot of things I’ve never done before! And not just that – rather than changing the whole look I mixed different styles which is fun, isn’t it? It changes your image in a good way. For example, the first outfit with the boa parker. The balance is easy to replicate but the leopard print is very much now. I like it so much I want to add it to my own wardrobe. Wearing a hood is warm too. It’s a balance I want everyone else to try too♡. The third outfit with the stripes and jumper skirt felt like something new, and I’m glad I wore an aviator cap, they’re all the rage this year! The concept of combining a mini one piece and waffle leggings in the third style is super cute. This is the number one style I want to try the most now!”

    today’s trendy girl fashion transforms mature elements into childish ones

     

    <Ricopin Interview>

    This is a balance I wanted to try: a mini one piece with long boots! I’m all about that 90’s kogyaru balance right now, but it’s something I’ve never done before, so when I thought about what I should wear, I came across this X-girl one piece. The length matches with the boots’ perfectly, and the logo has a mature colour tone that is cute. The waist squeezes, and it also has pockets. I’m a fanatic for it even just wearing it on its own. It’s too wonderful a thing! (laughs) I’m doing autumn this time , so I tried to make it autumn-y and chic by combining with a black hat.

  • Rikako Ōya’s #OOTD (September 2018)

    27.September.2018 | FASHION / FEATURES

    Rikako “Ricopin” is a Japanese model and this is her featured article series in which she delivers the latest fashion from Japan.

     

    For her 8th entry to the series, Ricopin is serving us a “Neo-Punk Mix” theme. The style incorporates elements of hardcore punk while lacing it with the kind of street and girly vibes that are in today―Ricopin style. She’s also joined once more by Yuri Suganuma again this month in her personal co-ord section.

     

    Street Mix means playing with colours & designs

    The t-shirt and knitted fabric pants have that 90s street style vibe to them. Nonchalantly added to that is checkered outerwear and a pair of boots which act as her punk components. By daring to add these colours it creates a unique, one-step-ahead of the pack punk style.

     

    KAWI JAMELE (LTN Showrooms): T-Shirt ¥2,800, Knitted Pants ¥11,800, Knitted Beret ¥2,800, Boots ¥13,800

    *Everything else are items from the stylist.

     

     

    An orthodox punk look with leather and a checkered pattern

    The leather jacket and checkered skirt alone give that “hard” look – they’re an indispensable combination in punk. The bright red t-shirt adds a change to the look while the long length of the skirt adds the kind of silhouette that’s in right now.

     

    Aymmy in the batty girls: T-Shirt ¥7,500, Checkered Long Skirt ¥22,000

    *Everything else are items from the stylist.

     

    Serving spicy sweetness with a rockabilly mix

    This style combines a glittery top with a circular skirt that falls gently. These girly monotone items serve a 50s rockabilly style while the redness of the hat give a punk element.

     

    Aymmy in the batty girls: Beret ¥8,000, Skirt ¥14,000 / KAWI JAMELE (LTN Showroom): Shoes ¥12,800

    *Everything else are items from the stylist.

     

    <Ricopin’s Thoughts>

    “I’ve loved that hard style since long ago. During middle school I was crazy on black co-ords, and before that I wore a lot of leather accessories. But this time I did things like combining a jacket with a deep blue checkered pattern, and added more colours to the co-ords. Even thought it was in the ‘hard’ realm I really felt a newness! The purple and orange combination in the first co-ord is also my theme colour for this year. I also added purple lipstick to match. Just wearing that really brings out your face. It makes you look stylish so I recommend it. The styling of the third co-ord with the checkered skirt is my favourite! The glitter material and skirt seem girly but they’re also cool. It seems easy to look flashy by just adding small accessories. The truth is whenever I go shopping after doing these shoots [for this article series] I’m learning while remembering how I combined things. Up to now I’ve done a lot of styles that are more bright and cheerful so for autumn and winter I sure want to go for something chic and cool!”

    Serving autumn with colours that are more chic than usual

    <Ricopin Interview>

    “I haven’t owned a lot of autumn browns and smoky colours up to now, but recently I’ve been wearing beige Chinos, and I like incorporating pink beige like today, so I’ve started collecting them. They are mellow colours but have their standout traits. I’m losing my strength to them they’re so easy to get by with (laughs). For example although t-shirts are standard simply changing the colour makes it autumn-like and changes the entire feel. That’s what I’m showing. I combined it with black but short pants and sandals aren’t too heavy and look good for the turning point of the seasons. It was a very fun photo shoot♡”

     

    <Yuri Suganuma Interview>

    “The first thing that popped into my head for this autumn coloured shoot was the colour orange. The orange skirt and orange logo on the t-shirt gives a sense of uniformity.The skirt and boots are also leather. Heavy material like that brings out the seasonal vibes. Incidentally, when I came up with this outfit, I realised the colours felt Halloween-y and thought ‘this really is an autumn outfit!’ (laughs) And Ricopin combined beige with black so we look like twins which I’m glad about!”

  • Tokyo Stroll: Shopping & Sightseeing with Mozuku-kun the Dog #4 – Instagram Hat Photoshoot

    08.August.2018 | FASHION / FEATURES / SPOT

    In this featured series, dog lover and model Yuna Yabe heads out with her trusty partner Mozuku to visit hot spots that people and their dogs enjoy, while deepening her bond with him.

     

    In today’s article, Yuna dresses up Mozuku with hats from a capsule toy series she likes called ‘Inu no Kaburi Mono’ (Things for Dogs to Wear).

    The ‘Inu no Kaburi Mono’ series Yuna is interested in is by Kitan Club. She found capsule toy items for cats that she wanted Mozuku to try on, but she also wanted to try the dog ones, so she ended up having him wear a variety of things.

    The Kitan Club hat series features 3 different designs: baseball caps, school caps and cop hats – and they all come in different colours!

    First up is the black baseball caps, fittingly co-ordinated with a striped Marines uniform to complete this sporty look! A perfect outfit for exercise in the park.

    Next is the white doggy cop hat. Mozuku is looking summery with the outdoor white polo shirt too. He looks like sailor!

    This big dropping t-shirt gives Mozuku a kid look. He has a yellow school cap on and looks just like a Japanese kindergartener. It matches perfectly with the green!

    The one Yuna wanted him to wear the most was the camo one. He’s wearing it together with a border-type Western outfit remade by her grandma. He looks like a fashionable and heroic guy!

    The last look is the red and navy co-ord. Wearing matching navy caps is a lot of fun.

     

    Yuna said, “We got to see many different sides to Mozuku today. It’s good to protect your head with a hat during summertime. If I wear a hat I can match looks with my dog, so I recommend it!

     

    If you’re in Japan and come across capsule toy machines, known as gashapon, then be sure to look out for this series. They’re ¥300 each.
