I must admit I was rather pleased when the topic for this weeks Share-in_Style was Japanese Style,
as I have had enjoyable Summer discovering the joy of wearing a Japanese label Moyuru.
The interesting and relaxed shapes of their clothing makes them a joy to wear,along with their wonderful fabrics.They fit the category of different,structural and timeless,always a must when I am adding to my wardrobe plus they work back with my favourites from seasons past.
Japanese fashion covers such a wide range of styles from the beautiful traditional kimono to the very modern dressing ,encompassing everything from animae characters to goth to Lolita in many forms.
I have been following L'ideal, a blog set in Tokyo ,featuring some wonderful men and women all over 60 with the most wonderful individual styles,definately worth checking out for those interested in Japanese styling,both traditional and modern.
On the blog I discovered two terms relating to clothing style.The first is " Hazushi", translated as the way to put different fashion styles together.The second is "Wabi-Sabi" ,,this represents a comprehensive Japanese view of aesthetic centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is imperfect,impermanent and incomplete.These thoughts resonate with me.
Discovering and playing with something new always a joy,keeps life interesting I say.
Apologies for today's photos, my husband and photographer is away enjoying a camping trip with our eldest son, so I had to resort to the tripod.
For my take on Japanese style this is what I wore.
Black Pants Moyaru
White Shirt Nicola Waite
Shoes Robert Clergerie
Bag Spencer & Rutherford
- Black Hat Very old
I also wore this resin bracelet
and these earrings,both unknown brands.
I love the shapes of both of them ,the
ear rings remind me of an acorn wearing a hat.
