Fashion week -Tokyo style!

I love the colours and shapes of Japanese fashion. Kusama dots, Lolita punk, indigo denims … modern twists of capes and kimonos let you fly around the city. Extremes are really extremes and modernity rubs shoulders with the past in a wonderfully jarring way… here are some of my fashion highlights from Japan:
