Welcome to Japan!!


Blogger Nadine2point0 said ... (9:56 AM) : 

Awesome jacket in the first photo - how could anyone have a bad day in THAT?!


Anonymous Kazuko said ... (9:56 AM) : 

oh you've arrived. can't wait to see and read more. :)


Blogger  said ... (10:02 AM) : 

Awesome!!! My guess is that the stripes photo is shot in front of the Ralph Lauren store in Omotesando, and the top picture next to LaForet, facing the Gap! It's nice to have to you here, I am certain you can find really great shots. The other day, I saw an elderly man taking his daily walk in a traditional Japanese yukata (a kind of robe) which was in navy, with geta sandals (traditional footwear made of wood). But what made the outfit fascinating was his neck area, which was wrapped in a Burberry scarf. And he was holding the best mahagony cane!

Hope you will enjoy your stay!
I wonder where the second picture was taken?

I love the punchy impact of a graphic element.


Blogger Ro said ... (10:15 AM) : 

flowers + stripes= perfection!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:23 AM) :

Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (10:25 AM) : 

Stripes never looked so chic!


Blogger NobodyKnowsMarc said ... (10:28 AM) : 

nice pictures..I love the sunglasses..


Blogger FlashFash said ... (10:35 AM) : 

Ooohhh, I see stripes everywhere! Love the second pic.


Blogger Ginta said ... (10:35 AM) : 

Jacket in the first photo is amazing! Love it!


Anonymous yellowRose said ... (10:41 AM) : 

that jacket in the first photo is a Kashmiri crewl work jacket. i would recognise that embroidery and style anywhere. Crewel is a traditional art form (one of many different types) of embroidery in the Indian occupied Valley of Kashmir.

i love kashmiri embroidery (my family originates from there) and have many shawls, coats and dresses with this and other types of embroidery - i would be happy wearing them all the time - and it really makes me happy to see something so special to me on here!

i would never have thought this one on a guy though! love globalism - a kasmiri coat wearing guys in japan : )


Blogger kozuyoh said ... (10:47 AM) : 

Oh, are you in Tokyo? I'm sure that Tokyo fascinate you. Don't you have any book singning party?


Anonymous Takeru said ... (10:56 AM) : 

Great pictures and outfits.


Blogger Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said ... (11:02 AM) : 

I'm loving this! Love how you inserted that middle pic in here! Keep the Tokyo goodness coming, please :)


Blogger Zenkichi said ... (11:09 AM) : 

(gasp) you're in Tokyo - how awesome is that!!! welcome, and looking forward to seeing pics of Tokyo fashionistas through your eyes.


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (11:09 AM) : 

Yay! Am so glad to see the start of your Tokyo pics. I see it is still raining in Tokyo, though. . . Rained 50% of the time when I was there a couple of weeks ago.


Blogger stylespotterfashionblogger said ... (11:12 AM) : 

I absolutely love the bottom pic. Great glasses!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:12 AM) : 

I absolutely the second picture! It looks like urban and street art. Hope you'll get to see cherry blossom, as well as the beautiful fabric and paper art in retail stores there.


Blogger christinaooi said ... (11:22 AM) :

The picture in the middle with the stickers on the blind in front of the fan looks very much paul-smith'ish. Reminds me of his book "You can find inspiration in everything".

Sart, this is also true for your blog and your posts. The styles shown on your pics are not always "wow, how can I look like this", but it inspires you - and, to say it with Paul, if not, people, look again!

Thank you!


Blogger Ashley Arostegui said ... (11:43 AM) : 

I love the expression in the first photo, and that jacket! What a persona, what an ensemble!


Blogger kathrynnova said ... (11:52 AM) :

Blogger Stephen said ... (12:02 PM) : 

Oooh here come the Tokyo photos. Wow, wow, wow. Genuine excitement, like you've no idea. Can't wait to see what you can pull out of the bag over there.

Blogger ... said ... (12:32 PM) : 

love the combination of the stripes with the flowers!


Blogger Lorena said ... (12:55 PM) : 

Japanese fashion is my favorite so I'm really looking forward to all of your Tokyo shots! I love he first guy, great combination and colors.


Blogger Bing said ... (1:00 PM) : 

Love that embroidered jacket balanced with the stripes and tan slacks. Love the dark blue bag. Really amazing look -- love how these Japanese guys know how to work color and patterns into their everyday wear. Still remember the guy in the orange Etro coat on the broad steps. Thank you so much -- wish I were in Japan too!


Blogger anthony said ... (1:00 PM) : 

I really like the blues on blues at the bottom as well as the guy's double-zip sweater. His spectacles are unusually professorial. What's in the lower part of the frames-TV cameras?

Not keen on the floral jacket on top but he doesn't seem to mind. He wears the T-shirt with its tight neck nicely too.


Anonymous may said ... (1:00 PM) : 

Ahhh! I hope you're having a blast in the TKY.


Blogger Prutha Raithatha said ... (1:03 PM) : 

i like the 3rd guys black sweater on stirpes concept

2nd pic's quite cool too


Blogger Cisma ♥ said ... (1:07 PM) : 

Love it!


Blogger Gin said ... (1:16 PM) : 

both looks are amazing!!! especially the second one- love how he plays with stripes and incorporates them into one look so effortlessly :)


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (1:24 PM) : 

Boys, florals and stripes... Japanese fashion is as daring as they say. Great pictures!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:39 PM) : 

I love the black sweater over the striped hoodie. And the bag. It works so well together, makes the stripes pop. Also those glasses are so cool.


Anonymous Natasha said ... (1:39 PM) : 

i really like the first look, i love to wear stripes and floral patterns myself, i think the pattern mix is great-and the guy looks so easy going and happy! definitely the best attitude to carry off clothes in :)


Blogger Izzen said ... (1:46 PM) : 

Lol, cute.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:57 PM) : 

Is it everything you aniticipated? Are the people more fashion conscious than other places you think?


Blogger joshylola said ... (2:14 PM) : 

Great Tokyo!!! I was in January :-D


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (2:28 PM) : 

I remember back when there were certain rules about mixing patterns.

Nowadays...anything goes. Love the carefree fashion mind set we now have.

i love the last photo especially. awesome coordination without it being obnoxious.


Blogger Iyengar's Impetus said ... (3:29 PM) : 

Ahhh Finally a beautiful jacket from India!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:38 PM) : 

Interesting: floral fabric on the first guy is a print that I have on my couch (cushions from Pottery barn). Sweet!


Blogger ikanbilis said ... (3:46 PM) : 

i love the combination of the stripes. relaxed harmony perhaps?

i would really want to know where on earth the bag is sold.

in the beginning i thought of the 2nd photo as something strange and then realized its some kind of fan. aha..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:08 PM) : 

The striped outfit looks like cruise wear for women of a "certain age". Not working.

I LOVE the second photo - is it a t-shirt vending machine?

Always interesting. Always!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

I first thought they were both female and I liked the looks. Then I realized otherwise. I still like the looks, but a little too androgynous for my taste.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:30 PM) : 

...looks like you're having a great time already! Seeing these makes me miss everything about Tokyo - amazing peoplewatching, fabulous inspiration, & nice nice people...

Must try Sunshine Studio for veggie burger sliders & Geoff McFettridge paintings...

love the guy on the first good morning...

Never posted on your site which is fabulous. I love the look the guy is wearing with strips. So cool and young.

I love Tokyo street style it's like a salad of loud obnoxious charm

Love the floral and the stripes but it's the cheeky smile that makes it really great.

you're in for a treat ...

I hope you take a bajillion pics in japan!


Blogger said ... (9:21 PM) : 

I want that floral jacket. Right. Now.


Anonymous Avery said ... (9:31 PM) : 

Yay, you've finally come to Japan! Welcome.

I'd love to hear what you think about Tokyo's fashion in comparison to your other major destinations. I find Tokyo style is so diverse, with everyone seeming to have their own person style. And it seems to me like it's all about the details here, which I love!

Oh I can't wait for more Sart photos!


Blogger MindlessMatterz said ... (1:35 AM) : 

Great pics... I recognize the stickered fan in Harajuku... I took a picture of it too when I was there. I miss Japan... :(


Blogger Jessica said ... (2:54 AM) : 

I can't help feeling like the man in the first photo simply bought a bedspread from the Vermont Country Store (a "country store" that is more "catalog for the elderly" than it is country or stor...y) and fashioned a coat out of it (one like this

Cheerful, but dowdy.

I think I have just fallen inlove with the top guy...!


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:00 PM) : 

anyone know where those glasses are from?


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:40 AM) : 

The pattern of the first jacket is great. It reminds me of work done by hand in Turkey and Iran.

Thanks for sharing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:02 AM) : 

bottom dude: wow, one of the best ever. i absolutely love this. top to bottom perfect, especially those glasses, oh my god this is fly.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:43 PM) : 

I'm thrilled you are in Toykyo - one of my favourite cities in the world.

I adore the fashion in Tokyo. Japanese fashionistas are masters at layering, love individual, quirky details, and the men are as dedicated to fashion as the women.

I'm so inspired when I am there. I'm sure you will be too. Enjoy.
