Entries in Floral (2)
Absolutely need to share this with you! Here is a short clip of Liz Lisa's S/S 2011 presentation during Tokyo Fashion Week (Oct 2010). Collection concept is based on French Bohemian.
Launched in 2000 by Ayako Kon and later joined by Hiromi Sato in 2003, both girls design super cute and girly collections of lace, florals, ribbons, ruffles.
There are 3 brands (Liz Lisa is the original brand):

Although I can't get away with wearing this style, it is very inspiring and puts a smile on my face.
I came across Cath Kidston about 3 years ago on a business trip in Tokyo. They had a store in the Daikanyama neighborhood. My first reaction was, "Oh my goodness. This is way too cutesy and floral!" And what do you know? Now I am so into all the rose patterns and polka dots. I think it has to do with the Japanese masking tapes I've been selling on my Tinted Mint store.
All this cuteness inspired me to do a concept collection between Nike and Cath Kidston. With many people buying the brand's printed fabrics to make their own things, towels and pillow cases, I think it is only fitting to incorporate some DIY in the collection. Hence a focus on using individual accessory components to make other accessories or to personalize clothing.
