I'm Not Quite Done Looking...







All pics Junya Tashiro, AW08-09, Japan Fashion Week.
I'm not sure whether this places me in the category of people who flog a subject to death and don't know how to stop, but having posted about this once before doesn't stop me from doing it again. I like getting a look at clothes from different angles, and Junya Tashiro's collection seems to hold up pretty well to that kind of viewing, so I'm going to indulge myself and have a good stare. Really, it's a great example of the fact that a dark/neutral palette doesn't necessarily=boring, and doesn't preclude drama. And I swear that shot with the hat and coat looks like it should belong in an editorial - it's rather a rare effect from a photograph taken on the runway (methinks the hat- and the fantastic decoration on it- is what brings the outfit to life). It's all really comfortable to look at, but worlds away from rustic or earth-motherish (and I love the white flutedress...it looks so dreamy on the runway, but not insubstantial at all). And I doubt a regular Style.com-type shot would have given me as good a look at the dress in picture#3..
pictures to be credited when I remember the urls. My bad...

Oh, everything about that fourth look, from the hair detail to the shoes is just marvelous. Very interesting shots for a runway!

I love that shot of the hat and coat, too. These are really nice, and a great way to wake up on a Tuesday morning.

Wow, I love it, especially the crochet details.

I play flute and am wondering if the girl was faking it or not :D

I love pics taken from these angles...adds more depth to the plain flatness of catwalk images...

Charlotte said...

Strtage pics but I like them anyway, specially the second look, I love that hat!

This really gives me a better appreciation of the pieces.

This multiple perspective theme could be an interesting analogy for...anything! Contemplating a concept from different angles is key to greater appreciation and comprehension.
