I’m sorry I’ve been lax on posting the past few weeks. I have been busy getting my clients ready to present their Fall 2013 collections in NYC this week nd last week I spent a few days in Las Vegas at the Project show checking things out. I will share those finds with you later this week but first I want to share some of the cool things I spotted at Rin Tanaka’s 3rd edition of his Inspiration show held in Long Beach a few weekends ago.
As a lover of all things Japanese and utility driven, I was obsessed with most of the stuff that I saw at this show from over 130 exhibitors. People come from all over the world to check out some of the best representations of vintage denim wear you will find anywhere. Take a look at some of my favorites and grab some inspiration for the upcoming season. I was excited to see that some of my recent flea market purchases were on the mark and that these aficionados were selling similar styles to what I already spied to be up and coming trends in the denim marketplace.
I‘m seriously obsessed with all of the above items and wish that I could wear all of these things all of the time. I constantly find myself wishing I was a man so I could dress like this…is that weird? Yea, I think it is. The sartorial challenge is for me to translate this look to womenswear. Yes, I can do it!
What’s your favorite from my pictures? Is it the patchwork, Japanese utility denim, military, patched jackets, western wear, or vintage graphics? Would love to know your thoughts!
