Banal Chic Bizarre

Sometimes nothing's better than an accidental discovery.

I came across this Japanese label while surfing the web and instantly fell in love with their F/W 08 collection.
I'll pretty much wear every piece of separates in this collection. I'm especially loving the tailoring of their jackets and the slouchiness of some of their pants.
And how sweet is it that some of the pieces appear to be androgynous? Just look at the shoes featured in the looks below and the white jacket the male model on the extreme right in the third row is wearing. I'll love to get my hands on the leather jacket pictured in the second row, but it appears to be sold out from a cursory search via Google.
I think I'll let the pictures speak for themselves from here.

Another reason to polish up my Japanese. Another reason to revisit Japan!

P.S. Their S/S 09 lookbook is online as well with lots of fantastical marching band jackets, nylon vests and pants. But I'm still in the mood for autumnal wear ;)
