It is a style, not fashion. Every woman has her own distinguished presence and you only notice the particulars of what she is wearing if you look closely.
They carry themselves with a certain grace and project an aura of assuredness – whether in a traditional kimono or high-end minä perhonen.
While most of the fashion world spins from one trend to another each season, Japanese labels establish an individual look and stick with it through all the trends that come and go.
I choose my Japanese brands because of their distinctive identities and their meticulous workmanship, complex fabrics such as paper cotton, weave embroidery, handloomed seams, covered buttons, perfect pleating, or unusual compositions such as silk and wool.
… the difference is in the details.
