  • Wearable Art For Your Feet by Japanese Shoe Designer Tetsuya Uenobe

    Back in my early club days one of my most coveted pair of shoes was a pair of Tokio Kumagai black suede pumps with funny, little whiskers jutting out all over.At a time when Japanese designers like Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto were the must-have uniform for the downtown art set, Tokio Kumagai designs– particularly the shoes– were right in step. Often extraordinary and whimsical, the shoes shared the Japanese minimalist fashion aesthetic of the time that still looks modern. The most iconic being most a pair of mouse flats long before Marc Jacobs turned a rodent into a chic shoe.>> SHOP FOR CUTE FLATSUnfortunately Kumagai passed away at an early age and there really have not been that many designers to fill his shoes when it comes to slightly wacky, yet very wearable art for your feet, that happen to have an animal influence.Enter Tetsuya Uenobe.Uenobe takes it up a notch with pieces of art that you happen to be able to wear. I was able to interview the designer and ask a few questions about his craft.

  • The iconic New Wave wardrobe of Aimee Mann is a vintage fashion score

    80′s New Wave cool is decidedly timeless in its avante-garde fashion way. I’ll try not to count how many times that I got dressed to go out to a club with MTV playing in the background.original But I will tell you that one of my favorite 80′s groups was ‘Til Tuesday.What I really loved was how real and downtown the the lead singer Aimee Mann looked in in the videos in comparison to some other pop stars at the time who looked like they were styled and ready to go to spring break in Daytona. As a just-hatched stylist and seasoned downtown club goer during the New Wave era, I was always amazed at how what we wore, what we saw never really translated to video, short of Madonna.But Aimee Mann got it.She had the look and the beat. Aimee had that Japanese cool, the counter-culture edge that redefined what chic was all about by way of designers like Yohji Yamamoto, Comme Des Garcons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Katherine Hamnett, and the like that made Charivari the boutique that it was.
