Tokyo Fashion Week is a fashion buffet to be devoured by all

Right now, the spotlight is on the Japanese capital Tokyo and, from what I can see online, I think I’ve found my fashion tribe. Every outfit literally looks edible, like a multi-coloured buffet of rainbow drops, fruit pastels and gumdrop buttons. It's bright, it's ostentatious, it's deliberate. It's maximalist, but far from kitsch. It's coordinated, considered and fun, which is why I'm so drawn to it. In a way, Tokyo street style is rewriting the rules of style and the result is something different than from NYC or London. It’s thoughtful fashion. It’s fashion with curated intention. It feels less effortless and it's the type of style that makes you think, "Hey, I can do that too!".

What I love most about Tokyo street style most is that each outfit is made up using meticulous attention to detail. Fashion Week or not, these savvy people dress up for the sheer joy of it. And the rolling streets of Harajuku provides a backdrop that looks like it came straight from a Rupert Sanders movie set.
