Tokyo Fashion Week SS '12

Hello fashionistas, I am Chie, fashion blogger of Vivat Veritas. Last week, I attended Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and checked out the Shida Tatsuya show. It was my first time seeing a runway show, I was super excited to experience Tokyo Fashion Week, especially as an independent designer and seamstress! Read my guest blog on #MBFT:

For Spring-Summer 2012, Shida's collection is based on his own rendition of the "marine" look. To switch things up, he incorporates unexpected color combinations which adds a playful element to his querky naval collection.

Hot pinks and oranges intertwined with navy create an unconventionally cool look.  Loose naval pants and trench coats were seen on the runway paired with sheer fabrics and alot of layering.  My favorite piece was the sheer white hoodie paired with bright pink tube top. View the full collection here.

As for the accessories, I absolutely loved the big hoop pearl earrings - they were super cute. The beauty look was very minimal and natural: the models' lips were bright in hot pink and red as if the lip color was roughly applied using finger tips rather than a lip brush, which added a rugged yet unique look. 

At Tokyo Fashion Week SS '12, Chie spotted two of our favorite fashion bloggers:

Susie of Style Bubble
