TOKYO DIARY 1.

I really have a genuine human and style interest, which navigates even the most relaxing of holidays. Tokyo was alway going to be a plethora of style and an abundance of people, but I was still surprised at how easy it was to shoot street and how many synergies there are between Tokyo and Melbourne style. 

This is the first of a few Tokyo photo diaries I'll be releasing over the coming week. A combination of the people I saw, the style I loved and all the bits and pieces in between. 

The guys in Tokyo have style to rival the girls. I particularly liked the fit of this guys jeans, oversized slightly it felt European and undone.

Scarf details were everything. In hair, on bags, around necks. Western handkerchief scarves were everywhere.

A distinct style of architectural detail was the tiled buildings that lined the streets of Tokyo.

After our market discovery the fun really began, abandoning our original plans in search of undiscovered moments, we accidentally arrived in Aoyama. A suburb of epic architectural boutiques including Prada, Miu Miu, Comme Des Garcon, Issey Miyake, Balenciaga and many many more. 

And although shopping is always on the agenda, I spent more time standing on the street corners capturing the style as it walked by, then inside the boutiques.

STYLE NOTES:

I saw an abundance of singlets and singlet dresses over t-shirts. Platforms/flatforms I assume mostly for practical reasons to increase height. Cropped wide legs pants were everywhere, in denim and cotton drill, the wider and shorter the better in a stiff fabric that hold their shape. Denim was also oversized and often worn with a tee.
