Notes on Tokyo
I have just wrapped up my visit to Japan. As I’ve mentioned, it is a rather non-shopping related trip, so I can’t say or share much about the shopping hot spots there. I didn’t even go to the famous Harajuku, SIGH.
Trend-spotting wise, while walking around in the busy Ginza and Shinjuku districts in Tokyo, I noticed that loads of women wear the classic trench, and kitten heels. The April weather is perfect for wearing a trench, and on the streets alone, there were about 10 sightings of The Trench in just a few minutes.
The youngsters are of course, more experimental. I like the fact that over there, you can dress up all quirky and no one gives a damn. That certainly doesn’t happen in Singapore!
