This Winter’s Fashion Item?

Posted in People, Places by tokyobling on November 28, 2011

I’ve been searching for months what the fashion item most popular here in Tokyo this autumn is but there doesn’t seem to be anything, not like the stockings of two years ago or the fur boots of last year’s. But I think I have a clue: the slouch hat! I see maybe once a day on the streets of Tokyo’s more fashionable areas, more so than any other headwear, so although it is not much of a trend, it’s certainly something! I am a little bit miffed that my deer stalker prediction hasn’t come true yet though! I saw this young lady in Shinjuku early this month.

    Slokhatt hade jag på slutet av 60-talet. Med ölringar runt. Härligt att se igen. Fortsätt att plåta i ditt härliga Tokyo det finns tydligen hur mycket motiv som helst där.

    Like a modern witch? I love witches :D (take it as a compliment)

      A sixties look maybe? I think this lady was more witchlike than the average slouch hat user (^-^;)

    I miss the Tokyo fashions! Please put more shots on here. I loved it when the zuri shoes were in fashion.

      I never noticed that particular trend! (^-^;) Thanks for the kind comment! I’ll try to do more fashion/trend-spotting over the winter. (^-^)

    Aw, I like the deerstalker. But maybe the slouchy hat is easier to coordinate? Maybe the deerstalker requires certain “acutramon”? The slouchy hat is very 70′s and that is big this season. But when isn’t the 70′s lurking about?

      I think you are right. There are probably good reasons the deerstalker hasn’t been in vogue with women since… eh… ever?

      Oh, didn’t even notice them! She must have had them done recently, looks fantastic.
