BACKSTAGE. Remember back in December when I went to New York for a photoshoot? Well, it was for the campaign + lookbook of the new japanese brand Andemiu which I am the face of for s/s 2013! I can’t wait to show you guys the official campaign pictures but until then I thought I’d share some behind the scenes pictures my boyfriend snapped during the shoot.

Goodbye, Tokyo

tokyo-kimono

It’s my last hours in Tokyo and all I want to do is to sit here in the hotel bar in front of these windows and the breathtaking view of the city.

Today, it rained. There was so much wind and giant clouds weaved in between the grey and silver towers right in front of me. I could spend hours here trying to capture just what how this trip to Tokyo has changed me.

Getting to work somewhere unknown is the best way to enter directly into the heart of a city. Of course, when you have a production team with you, it takes some of the Lost in Translation effect out, but you get the chance to live some incredible moments…

Karaoke. I got the chance to do some karaoke with some real Tokyoites and I’m still recovering. Picture this:
First of all, in Japan, karaoke is only done in a private lounge. You can reserve the room for one, two hours, or all night long. When you get there, you gotta make sure to get the all you can drink option.

(I, of course, had saké like any self-respecting westerner, but my Japanese friends preferred beer and whisky sodas.)

As soon as the door to your private room closes, which is more like a closet, (and it REEKS of cigarettes – you can still smoke inside in Japan, just not outside on the street, where you have to find designated smoking areas), my Japanese friends chose their songs and begin to turn their mics up and up and up (the sound in these places is just terrible. You have to literally scream to hear anything – which is the idea I guess, to just let it all hang out!).

After the second Japanese song, I decided to put on something that my team and I could sing together. Madonna, Like a Virgin.

Crooning into the mic, dancing total booty style, jumping on the table, on the couch, people yelling into my ears to bottoms-up my saké (very persuasive), and at the end of two hours, I’m drunk as can be and couldn’t be happier.

Kana, my producer says to me, “now you know how the Japanese deal with the pressure of their long work days.”

Private. Leaving karaoke Friday night, totally drunk and lost in a sea of people and light in Shibuya, I ask my friend if all karaoke is private… “Aren’t there public places for it too?” Response: “Seriously? NO WAY. We’d NEVER sing in public!”

Food: “I’m not so into Japanese food. Sushi doesn’t really do it for me and seaweed is for fishies.” That was me before arriving in Tokyo. 
The first days, I had to force myself a little bit. The slimy textures, the bitterness, soup soup soup all the time, blah. And then I started to love it. 

I only ate sushi once. Japanese food is so much more than that. Anyone know a good Japanese place in New York?

Sushi: You have to put it all in your mouth at once. And dip it in the soy sauce on the fish side. yeah. Try it next time. It’s no easy task. 

Shopping

1/ The Japanese and I do not have the same taste. Fashion is very little girl even if you’re older. Femininity definitely doesn’t mean the same thing, but I didn’t get the chance to explore the whole thing enough to offer one of my legendary psychological break downs (awww shucks!). So shopping style wasn’t a point of commonality. 

2/ The Japanese don’t have the same body as me. The only time I could find something in my size was to shop in the mens’ department. Size 9 shoes? Not so much.

3/ Japanese men have the same taste as I do. Right now, the like American casual, surf and hiking clothes, oh man it’s on everyone in Tokyo right now… And the “Americana” trend with jeans, plaid shirts, worn-in look. The interpretation of American style is really impressive, pushed to such a perfection that I really had a hard time not bringing back “California Dreamin’” t-shirts from Beams or United Arrows.

Words. My dear readers, it is not without a touch of pride that I confess my innate talent for languages. Drop me off any ol’ place, gimmie a couple days and I’ll be talking with the locals. Four days in and I’ll have them laughing (which is my ultimate goal in life). 

Yeah yeah yeah, but not in Japan. My amazing brain is perfectly impenetrable to Japanese, which means that this list of words I’m bringing back for you is going to be deliciously short.

Sumimassen: Please. You have to drag out the last syllable and yell it out when you’re at a restaurant. Sumimasseeeeeeeeeeeeen! (memorization technique invented by my team: sue me my son. Yep. That’s it. It works.)  
Arigato: Thank you. Derived from the Portugese (nooooo, they invaded like, seriously!!!) Obrigado. 
Sayonara: Goodbye.
And that’s it. Oh wait no, I forgot one… Saké.

Too big. A lot of Japanese wear their shoes a size or two too big, flip flop to death in Japan. It makes sense because you take your shoes off every two minutes (no shoes in the apartment, how dare you?!) 

François Hollande: François Hollande is the big winner of the first round of the French presidential election and in the Japan Times, he’s on the front page, right on the bottom. 

Cleanliness: Everything is extremely clean in Japan, from the streets to the fish market to the toilets to the subway stations to the taxis to the… That said, it’s almost impossible to find a garbage can to toss your to-go cup of coffee in the street. C’mon, these people are genius!

Traditional: The kimono is still worn for special occasion, like for birthdays in your 20s or traditional weddings – in the picture that teenager is on her way to celebrate her sister’s 20th birthday. It’s very expensive, so there are a lot of places that rent them and get you all dolled up. So beautiful.

Beauty. Beauty is everywhere. Beauty is something that’s really important in Japan and is taken very seriously. Beauty has many dimensions and I’m not talking about physical beauty. There are many other beauties. 
Like the beauty of a gesture. 
The beauty of the seasons. The love that the Japanese have a cherry-blossom season that is not only about the beauty of a tree. The beauty of Sakuras lies in the strength of their bloom (the tree blooms a million flowers all it once) balanced with their fragility (the flowers disappear within a few days). 
The beauty of intention. My calligraphy lesson taught me something incredibly important and that I hope to use in my work. Ten-You taught me to trace a simple line and I tried to do it right and fast, as a good pupil should. She told me it wasn’t right, that what I had to do was put my spirit behind it. Drawing a line became an entirely new experience…

And perfect beauty lies in imperfection. That’s what I got from the concept of wabi sabi, which is difficult to define, but it finds beauty in impermanence, in imperfection, in the passing of time, in simplicity. It’s easiest to see in Japanese pottery – just sublime – which gets its beauty as hot water does its work of slowly cracking it, for example.  

If only this wisdom could find its way into our daily lives more often we’d spend less time chasing after some tragic idea that perfection exists and that its the key to all happiness… 
(Of course, not all Japanese are walking wise men living wabi sabi – they love plastic surgery too, even if their criteria of beauty is different than ours…)

Boys: So many sexy Japanese men. Now, I’m very happy with my sexy American man (I doubt that Scott has made it this far in the article, but hey, just in case. Ha!) but in case you single ladies out there are asking, I thought I’d tell you.

Wapanese: With all this fantasticness, you can quickly become a Japanophile, you know, a Japanese wanabe. There are so many foreigners who have developed quite the taste for Japan, learning the language, knowing the traditions by heart, falling in love with a Japanese person, finding everything is better here, more refined, everything is more beautiful, more harmonious, everything is just more sound here, for body and mind… As if the Japanese have found the key for eternal happiness. 

The Japanese, who are no fools (Japan is a country like all the others, with its societal problems, its Michelle Bachmans, its economic crises and we’re not even getting started on earthquakes…), make fun of all that and call it Wapanese. 

Still, I want to come back as soon as possible. With Scott. Go to Kyoto. Go back and eat grilled fish in Asasyoku. Buy some silly souvenirs at Kiddy Land. Gain five pounds, even though I thought I’d be coming home skinnier. Sing like an idiot at karaoke – every single night if possible. Wake up at 5 am. Learn a new word and then forget it five seconds later. Communicate with hand signals with all the people I meet in the streets. Live Tokyo.

PS: My Pardon My French with Dior will be here soon! You’ll see all this soon on video. Even my super drunk karaoke-ing? Yes, even that!

Sayonaraaaaaaa!

I was super lucky to see a wedding at the Meiji Temple in Harajuku.

Here is a picture of the bride’s hairdo: fanstastic, extraordinary, bizarre and sublime.

I’ve always found it fascinating: While in Europe and America we’re mostly obsessed with straight hair, in Japan everybody wants to have curly hair. Girls and boys curl and bleach their hair. By the way, I really like the short and curly cut in the picture.

Wouldn’t it be funny if  the Japanese showed us how to like curly?

One thing that is a constant though: the smoky eye is loved from New York to Paris to Tokyo –it always makes people look beautiful !

In Tokyo

yoon

I am in Tokyo for the first time in my life, and really… It’s like a dream.

I realized today that the city is sooo mystical. I was really worried of being disappointed. Well, I am not.

The people are the kindest in the universe and sooooo well-mannered*, the food is as unsettling as expected**… And its the same thing for fashion, you have to get used to extreme flavors and crazy mixes. Men are super fashionable (I LOVE their style) and girls have so much fun with their make up, hair colors and manicures.

Yoon, who is an amazing graphic artist and jewelry designer (you can check her wonderful world here), that I met today told me it’s really the thing to do in Tokyo. No, Garance, you can’t stay like that with you nails all naked, come on*** !

Ok, that said, I have to go: I am not on vacation here but shooting a Pardon My French for Dior – I am so excited, I’ll tell you about it soon and I’ll definitely try to get a manicure. I mean, come on, they can even stick Hello Kitty on your nails – WHO COULD RESIST THAT !!!?? ;-)

Big kisses and see you later !

*I am preparing some posts about Japanese manners right now – I mean compared to them I feel like a savage !

**Talking about savage, you should see the faces I make when I taste some of the food !

***You savage !

Shooting for JJ magazine and last day in Tokyo

TheBlondeSalad-6470

Here is how I spent last Monday, my fifth and last (unfortunately) day in Tokyo. The morning was dedicated to the shooting for the JJ japanese magazine which, thanks to the perfect japanese organization, also finished one hour before the schedule. Hair and makeup was done by a wonderful team in my hotel room: It has never happened to me before to have my hair and makeup done with such a beautiful view :)
The one you see in photos is the first of 3 looks I created for the shooting: I was wearing a total black with sequined golden blazer, the new Mulberry Bayswater found the day before at Ragtag and the vernis Louboutin, that I exchanged with flats for the afternoon.
After a sushi lunch in a typical restaurant (Thanks Kenta for the advice!) and a last trip in Shibuya, Carolina and I were invited to the Murua showroom, a beautiful japanese brand for which Carolina modeled last year. I met the staff who also liked our tshirts (go WERELSE!), I admired their new collection and I got a lovely long blazer, that I wore for the night.
Last dinner in Tokyo couldn't take place in any other place than Gonpachi, which inspired Quentin Tarantino for the famous fight scene at the restaurant in Kill BIll (one of my favourite movies). I really hope to be back in Tokyo soon, It gave me such strong feelings.

Ecco come ho passato lo scorso lunedi, il mio quinto ed ultimo (purtroppo) giorno a Tokyo. La mattina è stata dedicata allo shooting per il magazine giapponese JJ che, grazie all'organizzazione perfetta è finito anche un'ora prima del previsto. Il trucco e parrucco è stato fatto da un team eccezionale nella mia camera d'hotel: mai mi era capitato di farmi truccare e pettinare con una simile vista :)
Quello che vedete in queste foto è il primo di 3 outfit che ho creato per il servizio fotografico: indossavo un total look nero con blazer dorato di paillettes, la nuova Mulberry Bayswater trovata il giorno prima da Ragtag e Louboutin in vernice, che ho cambiato con le ballerine per il pomeriggio.
Dopo un pranzo di sushi in un ristorante tipico (grazie Kenta per il consiglio!) e dopo un ultimo giro a Shibuya io e Carolina siamo state invitate nello showroom di Murua, un interessantissimo brand giapponese per cui Carolina ha posato l'anno scorso. Ho cosi conosciuto lo staff che ha apprezzato le nostre tshirt (go WERELSE!), ho ammirato la nuova collezione e ho preso un blazer lungo meraviglioso, che ho indossato per la serata.
L'ultima cena a Tokyo non poteva essere organizzata in altro posto se non da Gonpachi, che ha ispirato Quentin Tarantino per la famosa scena del duello al ristorante in Kill Bill (uno dei miei film preferiti tra l'altro). Spero con tutto il cuore di tornare a Tokyo molto presto, è una città che mi ha dato emozioni incredibili.

Ecco come ho passato lo scorso lunedi, il mio quinto ed ultimo (purtroppo) giorno a Tokyo. La mattina è stata dedicata allo shooting per il magazine giapponese JJ che, grazie all'organizzazione perfetta è finito anche un'ora prima del previsto. Il trucco e parrucco è stato fatto da un team eccezionale nella mia camera d'hotel: mai mi era capitato di farmi truccare e pettinare con una simile vista :)
Quello che vedete in queste foto è il primo di 3 outfit che ho creato per il servizio fotografico: indossavo un total look nero con blazer dorato di paillettes, la nuova Mulberry Bayswater trovata il giorno prima da Ragtag e Louboutin in vernice, che ho cambiato con le ballerine per il pomeriggio.
Dopo un pranzo di sushi in un ristorante tipico (grazie Kenta per il consiglio!) e dopo un ultimo giro a Shibuya io e Carolina siamo state invitate nello showroom di Murua, un interessantissimo brand giapponese per cui Carolina ha posato l'anno scorso. Ho cosi conosciuto lo staff che ha apprezzato le nostre tshirt (go WERELSE!), ho ammirato la nuova collezione e ho preso un blazer lungo meraviglioso, che ho indossato per la serata.
L'ultima cena a Tokyo non poteva essere organizzata in altro posto se non da Gonpachi, che ha ispirato Quentin Tarantino per la famosa scena del duello al ristorante in Kill Bill (uno dei miei film preferiti tra l'altro). Spero con tutto il cuore di tornare a Tokyo molto presto, è una città che mi ha dato emozioni incredibili.

Werelse tshirt in Tokyo

TheBlondeSalad-6200

Here in Tokyo it's already morning, so here for you all the other photos shot on Sunday with all the guys around this incredible city. Carolina and I decided to go for Shu Uemura fake eyelashes, which soon revealed to be heavier than I thought but absolutely scenographic. For the typical dinner+karaoke night I changed jacket, wearing a new purchase from Ragtaf: a white leather jacket by Comme Des Garçons. Good night Europe and America, good morning Asia!

Qui a Tokyo è già mattina, quindi ecco per voi tutte le altre foto scattate domenica con tutta la compagnia in giro per questa incredibile città. Io e Carolina abbiamo deciso di provare le ciglia finta di Shu Uemura, che si sono rivelate più pesanti del previsto ma assolutamente scenografiche. Per la serata passata tutti insieme al ristorante locale+karaoke ho invece cambiato giacca, indossando un altro acquisto di Ragtag: una giacca di pelle bianca di Comme Des Garçons. Buona notte Europa ed America, buongiorno Asia!

Kawaii!

TheBlondeSalad-6225

Among Tokyo beauties I found, thanks to a friend, some places with camera machines to shoot photos to print or to share by mobile, a real must among japanese teenagers... Since Carolina and I found out we could shoot with special effects (among them the alien eyes are the best) we can't avoid stopping there... Of course we made everything look even more strange thanks to Shu Uemura fake eyelashes :) Kawaii!

Tra le meraviglie di Tokyo ho trovato, grazie ad un'amica, dei locali specializzati in macchine automatiche per scattare fotografie da stampare o condividere tramite cellulare, un vero must tra le teenager giapponesi.. Da quando io e Carolina abbiamo scoperto di poter fare foto con effetti speciali (tra cui gli occhi formato alieno) non riusciamo a farne a meno.. Naturalmente rendendo il tutto ancora più strano grazie alle ciglia finta di Shu Uemura :) Kawaii!

Meiji-Jingu

TheBlondeSalad-5878

What can I tell you? Hours in Tokyo seem to go even faster: yesterday I spent the Sunday I've always dreamt of in this city, which ended with a dinner in a typical Shibuya restaurant with some local friends and a karaoke all together. This morning I have a shooting for the japanese magazine JJ, and while I'm writing you the hairstylist/makeup artist should arrive to my room to "fix me" :)
But let's go back to yesterday... The day started with a visit to the Meiji-Jingu temple, where I was lost in wonder for a couple of hours looking at the kids in traditional clothes and at the prayers/thanks messages from all over the world. These are the photos I love the most, among the ones shot by Richi and me... In the afternoon I hope to be able to write a second post, with all the other photos of the Sunday I've enjoyed (including better photos of my look). I also have to tell you about a wonderful second-hand store Rumi suggested me where I found one lovely Mulberry Bayswater golden bag and more. Soon also all the VFNO photos :)
Have a great start of the week you all!

Cosa posso raccontarvi? Le ore a Tokyo sembrano scorrere ancora più velocemente: ieri ho passato la domenica che avevo sempre sognato di trascorrere in questa città, che è terminata con cena insieme ad amici locali in un ristorante tipico di Shibuya e karaoke tutti insieme. Stamattina ho invece un servizio fotografico per il magazine giapponese JJ, e proprio mentre vi sto scrivendo dovrebbe arrivare nella mia stanza l'hairstylist/makeup artist a darmi una sistemata :)
Ma torniamo alla giornata di ieri... Il tutto è cominciato con la visita al tempio Meiji-Jingu, dove mi sono incantata per un paio d'ore di fronte ai bambini in abiti tradizionali e davanti alle preghiere/ringraziamenti appesi provenienti da tutto il mondo. Queste sono le foto che più preferisco, tra quelle scattate da Richi e da me.. Nel pomeriggio spero di riuscire a scrivere un secondo post, con tutte le altre foto della domenica appena passata (inclusi scatti migliori del mio look). Vi devo anche parlare di un negozio di abbigliamento ed accessori di seconda mano che Rumi mi ha suggerito, dove ho trovato una stupenda Mulberry Bayswater dorata ed altri capi. Presto anche tutte le foto della VFNO :)
Buon inizio di settimana a tutti!

First hours in Tokyo

TheBlondeSalad-4728-copia

The first hours in Tokyo were dedicated to the Shibuya area, just next to our hotel, in which Richi and I walked through strets, restaurants and store, feeling like we were in a cartoon from our childhood. We managed to avoid going to bed too early, "resisting" until 11 pm, to avoid to wake up at 6 am (even If the idea of looking at the sunrise from our hotel window wasn't bad at all). In addition to my photos on Elle Japan I also discovered I was published on other japanese magazines this month like Nylon or Snap Style Book, that I was flipping through randomly in a book store in the centre, a real suprise :) The weather here is really warmer than Italy, and for my comfortable look I chose flat shoes, skinny jeans, one of the WERELSE tshirts, Missoni for Target coat and the New Anna bag by Fendi, suprise of the package you saw in the previous post :)
Today most of the other bloggers will arrive too: Vogue Fashion's Night Out is tomorrow night and a wonderful trip through stores with journalist, stylists and designers is waiting for us all :D
P.S: At Shibuya109 there is a store called "Chiara"!

Le prime ore passate a Tokyo sono state dedicate alla zona di Shibuya, proprio di fianco al nostro hotel, in cui io e Richi abbiamo girato per vie, bar e negozi, con l'impressione di essere all'interno di un cartone animato della nostra infanzia. Siamo riusciti a non addormentarci troppo presto, "tirando" fino alle 11 di sera per evitare di svegliarci all'alba (anche se l'idea di assistere al sole che sorge dalla nostra camera non era affatto male). Oltre alle mie foto su Elle Japan ho scoperto di esser stata pubblicata anche su altri magazine giapponesi di questo mese come Nylon e Snap Style Book, che sfogliavo per caso in una libreria del centro, una vera sopresa :) Il clima qui è molto più caldo rispetto all'Italia, e per il mio look comodo ho scelto ballerine, jeans skinny, una delle tshirt di WERELSE, cappottino di Missoni for Target e la nuova borsa "Anna" di Fendi, sorpresa del pacchetto che avete visto nel post precedente :)
Oggi ci raggiungeranno la maggior parte degli altri blogger: la Vogue Fashion's Night Out è domani sera e ci aspetta un bellissimo giro per negozi tutti insieme, tra redattori, giornalisti e stilisti :)
P.S: A Shibuya109 c'è un piccolo store chiamato "Chiara"!

Konnichiwa Tokyo!

TheBlondeSalad-4597-copia

Good morning from Japan beauties! After a 12 hours flight we landed in Tokyo at 2 am (10 am in Japan) among surprises and uncontrollable enthusiasm: even If we were completely tired we decided to have a small walk in our neighbourhood (we're staying at the majestic Cerulean Tower) to realize we really were here. Most of the photos were shot by iphone and my look was still the one I used for the flight (created by comfortable boots, my "historical" jeans and a cosy sweater) but I like the idea of sharing with you this experience from the beginning. We now finally are in our room, ready to get a shower, change clothes, have lunch and discover this world which is totally new to me (please jetlag, don't make me fall asleep while eating at the restaurant like it always happens) :)

Un buongiorno dal Giappone meraviglie! Dopo 12 ore di volo siamo atterrati a Tokyo alle 2 di notte (10 del mattino giapponesi) tra sorprese ed entusiasmo irrefrenabile: nonostante la stanchezza abbiamo deciso di fare un primo giro nel quartiere del nostro hotel (il maestoso Cerulean Tower) per renderci conto di essere veramente arrivati fin qui. La maggior parte delle foto sono state scattate con il mio iphone ed il mio look era ancora quello da viaggio (creato da stivaletti comodi, i miei jeans "storici" e maglione caldo) ma mi piace l'idea di condividere con voi tutta questa esperienza dall'inizio. Ora siamo finalmente in camera, pronti a fare una doccia, cambiarci, pranzare e andare alla scoperta di questo mondo che per me è totalmente nuovo (ti prego jetlag, non farmi addormentare nel bel mezzo di un pranzo al ristorante come mi succede sempre) :)

Milliner Akio Hirata’s fabulous retrospective

Since living in London, I have become quite a bit more hat-conscious than before. But not only the English are big on creating head pieces, there is Japanese Akio Hirata to be one of the most internationally known milliners.

Over seventy years of work on display

Branding studio Nendo realised an exhibition at the Spiral Gardens in Tokyo showcasing over seventy years of work of the creative. More than 4000 white hats float above the exhibited pieces, creating a dreamy atmosphere in which the visitor can wander and discover Hirata’s work of a lifetime.

The exhibition was created by Japan’s branding agency Nendo

The whole installation has a dreamy feeling to it.
