Last post we saw the good, the bad, and the OH HELL NO. Hopefully this post is the unicorn chaser for your soul if you felt a bit worried by Camping-Gyaru and Nordic Cabin Vacation Gyaru.
One of my favorite gal brands and also one of Tsubasa’s as well :heartsmile:
Key points: Lace up long boots, nordic prints, monster fur, oversized knit, khaki shorts
Key point: Blouse with deco shoulder
Key points: Skinny belt, cardigans, military chic, nordic knits
Fur overlay boot, the fur is removable. Great way to get two looks out of a boot
Key points: Fur, Military coat & over the knee lace-up boots.
This khaki green seems a very key color for Fall.
Nordic on nordic. Lots of knits and sweaters galore this season.
Has to be one my personal favorite pieces for fall.
From far away it looks like a sweet little nordic blouse-style dress. Then, BOOM! Military!
Guns, tanks and airplanes make up the print! It’s coming out in September and I can’t wait to buy
Leopard and military. It doesn’t look like they’re trying hard at all though.
While it has moved out of 109 for Shinjuku Alta, it’s still popular with the Cecil crowd.
Nordic dress with monster fur
No collar pieces, nordic, and black themed looks.
I’m going to need to drink a lot of alcohol to attempt to blog about this.
You, too can clothe yourself in Chewbacka’s hairballs. The open toe for fur?! INSANITY
While the styling may confuse me, I think this thin casual look is a great way to wear a poncho. It doesn’t seem as bulky either. Now only if it was one color or such.
The hidden wedge military boot is nice.
Shoe trend: Lots of hidden wedges to be seen this season
Monster fur/sheepskin trim with leopard. I like their curly take on monster fur. Doubtful I’d purchase though.
One of my favorite outfits for fall. Leopard shorts, small suspenders, layered blouse, bold take on the no collar jacket.
A bit too much of a plain look for me, but something that a lot of gals are bound to wear.
Hurray for Mode!!
Maybe it’s them shooting in exotic locations or maybe it’s my love of Ena and Momoko seeping out, but wow Mode. Get your fashionista bootys up and handclap these ladies :waves:
If you’re following my tumblr, you’ve seen the amazing shots Ena took of the EMODA line in Italy.
Key points: chunky necklace, French sweetheart knit, leopard, bowler-type hat. It’s a bit bowler x cloche mix. :sparkle2:
Casual shot showing off her full outfit. Love the leopard insets. Looks so rich :sparkle2:
Ena getting styled.
Key points: Bulky top paired with print leggings. This will be a repeating trend in Fall Mode Gyaru :sparkle2:
Unsure how I feel about the giant knit jacket. It does feel fun for being super oversized, but it’s swallowing her!
Love the color though. This scarf print at the shoe is a key for EMODA A/W
This is just a surprise shot from her blog, but items to notice. Oversized knit and scarf turban.
Ena also shot some catalog shots back in Japan. Chunky necklace, scarf turban, deco shoulder dress.
EMODA is pushing the corset belt, but honestly I think the skinny belt might win out this Fall. Love the shoes
All pics for EMODA were from Ena Matsumoto’s blog
Momoko Ogihara has already come out and said what Murua’s fashion statement for fall will be. She’s planning for Classic and Feminine Dramatic looks. The key style will be: belt at the waist and possible volume tops with tight bottoms.
Momoko showing off exactly Murua’s style plan.
Key points: Volume, skinny belt, blouse, fur, chunky necklace
Scarf turban, fur tail, and loving the royal purple jacket.
Momoko looking like Victoria Beckham with some flair. I love this adult trend look :upheart:
Key points: Chain print, “mori” necklace
Key points: Chain Print, monster fur stole
Momoko’s bringng sexy back. :sparkle2:
Chain print, volume top, chunky necklace.
Momoko doing a similar look to Ena in Italy’s shot. However the red heels and flirty hair really make this look shine.
Pics from MURUA were from Momoko Ogihara’s blog and Blenda Gossip blog.
Chinatsu posted this pic on her blog. Looks like she’s doing a take on previous Fall’s Sex cardigan. But a bit more blatant.
LOL I so want to buy it :heart2:
This scarf according to her blog will be released soon on the site.
As a side note: Chinatsu’s blog is awesome! Her caption for this pic “I’m a Monster”. LOL :kumatan:
Final thoughts on Fall
A lot of this is just too serious for me. The way it’s styled is a it too adult in a lot of ways. I like dressing adult, but I also prefer a certain playfulness. Most of this is not playful enough to me. Does that mean I won’t shop like a madwoman, oh hell no. Does it mean I don’t love Murua’s and EMODA’s collections, oh hell no. :heartsmile: But I do hope to see some more things that make up gal fashion: being playful and sexy. I hope for more playful bits from w♥c and One*Spo to keep this adult Fall fun
Note: All corporations who own clothing lines do not hold exhibitions. So far we’ve seen nothing from such popular brands as Lip Service, One*Spo, DIA, Love Boat, Golds Infinity, or Me Jane. So we haven’t seen the full gyaru trend picture. All it takes is one fabulous item for people to fall in love with that makes all rush to copy it, and boom a new trend is born. :upani:
Ladies, what are your final thoughts on Fall Exhibitions? :curiousmo:
Sources: Most of the pictures were found on Blenda’s Gossip blog. It’s a great blog to read even if you’re not into Blenda style. Also Net Vivi put up many exhibition and catalog photos from Spiral Girl, Titty & Co and Miia
