Tokyo Rallies To Keep Spirits Up As Quakes Continue And Fear Of Radiation Grows

-------


In Japan, as earthquakes continue, fears of nuclear radiation grow, and snow falls in the troubled Tohoku region, many in Tokyo try to function somewhat normally.

At Garter and Spank!, two shops in the trendy neighborhood of Koenji, owners Koshiro Ebata and Tavuchi, respectively, tweeted and blogged that they are open for business. So is Xanadu in Harajuku, a hot spot for young Japanese fashion design. “If I don’t keep the store open, my designers can’t eat,” said owner Tatsuro Motohashi. “I have to support them.” Miharayasuhiro closed its Tokyo boutique, but part of the team, like PR manager Noe Okamoto, is at the office packing up their international deliveries to get them out by the end of the month. Street-style blogger Mamy, a fixture around Omote-sando, posted some photos today.

“This moment reminds me of how my mother used to recount that during the war she would talk about movies and her favorite actors in the shelter,” United Arrows creative director (and Sartorialist regular) Hirofumi Kurino shared in a note to all employees. The company is keeping stores open. Kurino emphasizes the importance of continuing normal life, and fashion and beauty especially at a time like this. “Fashion, happiness, fantasy…is what helps people. After every night, there is a bright morning.”

Meanwhile, donations keep pouring in. Coach has pledged the equivalent of $4 million to the Japanese Red Cross, H&M has closed all Kanto area stores so employees can be with their families, but will continue to compensate all staff until stores reopen. And earlier this evening, Emperor Akihito made his first appearance on TV since the tragic incidents (below), sending out prayers to victims.

The Crystal Method

-------

Earlier this week, Whitney Biennial attendees spotted Chloë Sevigny rocking a pair of metal-plated jeans; the week before that, paparazzi snapped Kylie Minogue stepping out in a similar pair. Their armorer is Husam el Odeh, the London-based jeweler who collaborated with Acne on a range of metal-accented denim. El Odeh is a frequent guest star for other brands—he’s also collaborated with Topman and the Japanese label Miharayasuhiro—but his own collection, which he unveils in Paris this week, shows he’s more than able to stand on his own. The new collection takes inspiration from the fractalized forms of molecules and crystals: Semiprecious stones have been placed upside down in settings constructed from a single sheet of metal, folded origami-style. “I quite like how the restriction of having to fit the stones onto a shape that was once flat almost gives the piece its own sense of rhythm,” el Odeh told Style.com. “I play with all sorts of materials, some quite unusual,” he continued, citing experiments with glacé fruit and candy. “In some ways, it’s led me to treat classic jewelry materials as unusual in themselves.”
