Japanese Brand Larme Style accessories Memnon

Brand introductions are sparse around here, but I’d like to shout out Japanese accessories brand Memnon that does Larme style accessories.

The brand says they are a small accessories brand made for women who want girly things, and think of their pieces as “dessert in a bag“. This brand speaks to me about why I feel in love with Japanese fashion: quirky individual items that are at a solid price.

Memnon (メムノン) started in 2010 by the clothing giant BEAMS. The brand which predates Larme, but it’s quickly become a Larme relatable brand. Actually I went searching for photos of Memnon in my Larme magazines and the first photoshoot I opened of the first magazine they were featured.

I think learning a bit about Memnon’s style is really at the core of Larme. They’re womenly but girly. They are inspired by retro items and make-up. It’s a mid-range price point. They’re a bit spicy sweet not the florals of girly items. Their palette is mostly pinks, reds, black and white with the occasional trend color popping in. A lot of ways I’d describe Larme style, but I’m only talking about Memnon.

Here’s a shot from the Verybrain instagram (favorite of RisaDoll aka Risa Nakamura) with a VeryBrain set-up and Memnon record bag.

I was able to visit the Memnon pop-up at Shinjuku Isetan 2nd floor and took a few pictures and bought some bits. If you’re interested in Larme style, Shinjuku Isetan on the 2nd floor often holds a lot of higher price tag Larme brands.

One of their most popular styles is the lip bag clutch. They’ve done it in velvet and lately patents for the current season’s patent trends.

This was from their last year’s collection. I love their idea of a powder puff bag. All make-up is good make-up.

Their lip love letter key cases, wallets and phone cases are very popular. They’ve also done their shoe pen case in several colors.

Their possible second most popular style is their eyeshadow wallet clutch. They also did a quad eyeshadow mini wallet.

The Memnon pop-up at Isetan Girls (2f Shinjuku) was laid out like a Larme brand. Sweet, girly and retro.

Memnon isn’t a brand with a full store, but if you’re interested in the brand you can always purchase online or check out their next pop-up! :makeup:

Social updates: They do not have a store and their website is constantly under construction. The best way to check for updates on the brand is their twitter: https://twitter.com/memnon_tokyo

Next time to buy in Tokyo will be at Cannabis Ladies in Shinjuku Lumine 2 from 11/24-12/04/2016.

To buy online webstore La Cuna del Flor sells most of the Memnon collection.

      It really is! I bought one and I wish I used it more often but I bought it in classic red and I’m not as much of a red person. It’s making me want to be though :)

    I have 3 Memnon items already, the patent pink lip pouch, the pink envelope ipad case and card case. I really want some of the velvet items they made for this season, especially the leopard print! Oh and the record bag, or the radio bag :D Shibuya Hikarie also stocks Memnon

      OOo the leopard print does really look cute. How does the envelope case hold up? I think that’s next on my list :)
