Urahara melds Japanese street fashion with traditional anime – The Verge

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Anime series Urahara is dreamy, but it’s also outright ridiculous to watch. Its characters are drawn and written like cutesy young Japanese fashionistas, the kind of costume-and-style mavens who hang around Tokyo’s Harajuku district. But the show also has insanely wacky elements, like an alien who’s also a talking piece of fried shrimp tempura, and who doubles as a scarf. (He introduces himself as Ebifuya, a Japanese pun on shrimp.)…

Fashion must now move on from female exploitation – and Terry Richardson – The Guardian

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The Harvey Weinstein scandal has triggered a wave of allegations, revelations and even confessions, via the #metoo campaign, across media and entertainment. I’m not the only one working in the fashion business wondering whether this will finally signal the end of our own disgraceful “hush hush” culture surrounding harassment. I thought this moment had come when reading that Condé Nast International – which publishes Vogue, GQ and Glamour – had…
