Fashion Goes Manga

This month, Vogue Nippon reaches its 10th anniversary celebrating with an issue entirely dedicated to Manga.


Not just a clever dissertation about the fine art and its (strong) relationship with fashion, but something that goes beyond and it's fun and enjoyable even if you, like me, can't read it!

My favorite part is certainly the Manga about Anna Dello Russo (fashion director at large for Vogue Nippon) and other familiar fashion faces. Another way to have a look (or to stalk...) Dello Russo's style after her famous street portraits from The Sartorialist .



(Due to my poor deadly computer, the scans aabove are from Café Mode , click to enlarge).

And because I'm here talking about Japan, Manga and all the related paraphernalia, here's the latest video by Murakami for Louis Vuitton. It's called Superflat First Love and it's a short film celecrating six years of collaboration between Takashi Murakami and Vuitton.



Last but not least, to complete this virtual journey to Far East, don't forget to follow Jane Aldridge's adventures in Japan with Sea Of Shoes live from Tokyo!

I've never been a fan of Manga. I have read a few and they have been ok but the pictures kind of scare me. The very odd part is that I'm taking Japanese, which unfortunately can be complicated by the random Manga fan girl.

Oh man, I was so obsessed with manga when I was younger. I still think that was why I chose to study for a semester in Japan.
That little vid was rather strange/random though...
