Sawa Takai FW2013
Sawa Takai explores deliberate layering through addition and subtraction. Engineered melton wool double-paneling functions as protective sheaths symbolizing strength and concealment. These heavy layers are contrasted by removed panels and split seams in soft flannel revealing interior linings and representing vulnerability and exposure. Together these themes play on Takai’s reflections on metropolitan women who must preserve their inner tenderness while projecting strength to the world to survive.
Y’know people say shit about social media along the lines of ‘OMG no one cares what anyone had for breakfast’ and like.
I do? I care. I’m pretty sure a lot of people care. I want to hear that the people I care about are having delicious breakfasts or saw something odd at work or flirted with a cute barista. Or just any little thoughts they have that they feel are worth sharing.
I’ve always kind of assumed that’s how you’re supposed to feel about your friends.

Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path.
