Lost In Translation: Gucci In Tokyo – Part 2
A continuation of our adventures with Gucci in Tokyo. This time, we headed to the calmer, smaller streets of Shibuya.| August 11, 2016
And we’re back with Part 2 of our “Gucci in Tokyo” series! Previously, we took to the world’s busiest junction in Shibuya to have a little adventure with this bold stripe-on-stripe look. With all the buzz, people and cars happening around Shibuya’s famous crossing, the tri-coloured stripes seemed to fit right in. Like I said before – no one, not even the obasan minding the konbini, gave us more than a glance as we snapped away.
For the second look, we turned to the quieter and quirkier small streets of Shibuya. It’s interesting what you can find on a stroll down these narrow streets – vending machines, high-end boutiques, ramen restaurants, acai smoothie stations, vintage stores and walking bicycle shops, it’s a fun mix. Despite being in monochrome, I felt like I fitted right in with the bedazzled strawberry and pearls on my blouse. (Funnily enough, the girls working at the walking bicycle shop were the only ones who giggled at us during the prep for this entire mini shoot.)
With its neoprene-ish texture and cropped sleeves, this Gucci Pre-Fall 2016 look is perfect for that little space between summer and fall. Though, considering how I didn’t break a sweat once while wearing this in Tokyo’s current heat, I’d say it works terrifically for summer too. Also, now that I think about it, the ensemble is actually…quite Tokyo. It’s got a bit of that anime, cosplay, shojo feel, don’t you think?
(Psst, we just got Facebook. Like us over here, maybe?)
