GINZA SIX EDITORS Vol.30
In recent years, the layered fashion continues, but in the spring I want to be happy with one of the leading clothes. Go to GINZA SIX in search of unique clothes that will make you feel like that. Spring is now in front of me. I would like to enjoy cute, gorgeous, and "aggressive" fashions in the coordination of "subtraction".
The Karen Walker Shops colored in macaroon color, is a flagship store from Japan where you can enjoy the world view of the brand. The charm of this brand is that it has a happy color, a dolly textile, and a sharp and gorgeous silhouette. It's just a perfect Shops to find the ideal piece of "no yuru". Coral pink in the store is the theme color of Karen Walker. In New Zealand's Shops, also sells paint of this color. Even with such a little playfulness, you can feel the phylosophy of the caren walker.
The sunglass collection, which is announced every season, is a popular item of Karen Walker. The GINZA SIX store has more than 70 kinds of sunglasses in one hall. From simple ones for daily use to pop ones that you want to incorporate as accessories, you only need to wear them to make you feel better. The clear blue frame I tried is an item that I wear with Kati Perry. With big sunglasses, I want to take a playful breath around my face!
The delicate design of the accessories that are perfect for a gift gives a girly impression. The animal motif rings and pierced earrings are delicate and not childish. You will be attracted to the "confusingness" that you can add when something is missing.
The theme of the spring and summer collection is "Eat Cake". The feminine style of the Marie Antweenette is sublimated on the street, and there is a girlie look that can be worn on a daily basis. What I was worried about was a fresh dress with a combination of sweatshirt and vivid orange. The stiff skirt is perfect as you wear it! This item has an elegant princess silhouette that can be worn by adults. This item goes well with a denim jacket with a loose hem.
Shops of Vivien Westwood, right next to the Karen Walker, gives off a unique presence. Actually, I don't have Vivian clothes as much as I say, but now in my mid-30s, I feel like I can wear it naturally. Like the red dress on the show window, it is not only unique but also a beautiful silhouette that wraps around the body. I feel like I want to wear a Vivin Spirit that does not change at any time and try a little more adventure than usual.
Bontie boots, along with Rokinhorse and Pirates, are famous as Vivien Westwood's masterpiece shoes. It's pretty hard to wear, but…(Laughs) As the name implies, the back is stretched. Combine with a dragging long skirt for a symbolic toe design.
Collaboration bag with "Ethical Facing Initiative". It seems that some materials from past collections have been reused for products made in collaboration with African Nairobi craftsmen. This item has vivian spirits in various places. The logo uplick with the initials of Vivian & Andreas is also cute.
You can't miss collaboration with Melissa, a Brazilian shoe brand. Melissa is popular for its cute PVC design and affordable price. I used to use collaboration pumps with Angromania, where heart's favorites before. The cuteness of a toy and the fruity scent of Melissa to eliminate the smell peculiar to rubber should be noticeable.
"Armuring" that everyone wanted when they were young. The design, which looks like an armor worn over your fingers, has a real impact. The triple version has a moderate volume and is easy to incorporate into for adults. The neck and ears are no accessories, so I want to create an "aggressive" at the hands.
Next was the beauty floor on the basement floor. To enjoy ideal fashion, care at hand is not neglected. It's good to enjoy it with gels and art, but I visited uka's Shops with gels and art, but it is convenient fashion and nudy nails feel like they are now.
The uka color base coat is available in five colors that naturally fits your skin. What I love is a 5/0 sand beige like an extension of skin color. It suppresses bloody feeling well and makes your hand minimal. It is also a nice point to enjoy different colors once painted, twice painted, and three times painted.
Nail oil that heals the hearts of busy women is also very popular. I like the scent of rose at 18:30, which gives you the bliss of every day after the deadline. We are also collaborating with fashion brands such as Mubert, so you can enjoy a unique package.
Nail and lip balm can be used for both lips and fingertips. When you open the box, you will see a cute pattern, and you will be healed by the delicate use of the uka-like heart. With crispy texture, not only lips and fingertips, but also remaining burm for hand.
Collaboration products with Darosa, which are sold only until March 14, are also in the store. "Soterine" (Raisin Chocolate) with raisin added to precious wine and spicy "Pymond" (Almond Chocolate) are on sale. Chocolate that matches with alcohol is perfect for me who is not good at sweets.
Apply energy well and wear it with a special piece. The gap between the clothes you need to wear and the clothes you want to wear is in your thirties who tend to worry about coordinating. I want to enjoy fashion with aggressive clothes that stimulate my daily motivation. Shopping at GINZA SIX reminded me of that feeling.

Layer, layer, layer—the trend marches on. In spring, however, I’d like to be happy with a single item in a lead role. So I’m heading straight to GINZA SIX for something unique, something to quench this desire. Spring is upon us. That means it’s time for a more dynamic brand of fashion, an appealing brand of fashion that draws from a colorful palette—even if this means coordinating by subtraction!
The macaroon-hued Karen Walker boutique, the brand’s first flagship store in Japan, gives a good sense of the brand’s values. The brand’s appeal lies in dreamy textiles, exuberant colors, and lively, glamorous silhouettes. It’s the perfect boutique for finding an ideal, sharp outfit. The coral-pink color inside is Karen Walker’s theme color. In the brand’s home country of New Zealand, stores actually sell paint of precisely this color. This little bit of whimsy, it seems to me, reflects the basic Karen Walker philosophy.
The brand releases a sunglasses collection each season. They’re among Karen Walker’s most popular items. The GINZA SIX boutique offers over 70 types of glasses, all in stock. From simple designs for daily use to pop models that work as accessories—all the designs are exciting to try on. The glasses with the clear blue frames I’m trying on here are worn by Katy Perry. A pair of larger sunglasses can add a playful aura to your look.
Accessories make the perfect gift, and the delicate designs confer a girlish feel. The animal motif rings and earrings are intricately designed to avoid a sense of childishness, which is great. I’m drawn by their nonchalance. They’re perfect for topping off your look any time you feel something’s missing.
“Eat Cake” is the theme of the brand’s spring/summer collection. The feminine style of Marie Antoinette is translated into the language of the street for a range of girly looks suitable for any day of the week. I’m especially drawn to a dress that features a fresh combination of sweats fabric and vivid orange. The skirt fabric is taut; it makes the pleated skirt voluminous enough to produce a refined, princess-like silhouette that’s perfectly wearable for adults. And it goes especially well with this slightly flared denim jacket and its billowing hem.
Right next to Karen Walker is Vivienne Westwood, which has a unique presence of its own. I don’t actually own as much Vivienne Westwood clothing as people think, but now, in my mid-30s, I feel I’m in a place in life where it’s natural to wear. The red dress in the show window, for example, catches my eye, not just for its originality, but for its striking silhouette, which all but envelopes the body. I want to invest myself into the never-changing Vivienne spirit and to be a little more adventurous than usual.
Alongside its Rocking Horse and Pirate, the Bondage Boots I’m wearing are widely known. They’re one of the brand’s renowned shoe styles. Putting them on is a challenge [laughing], but as the name suggests, there’s a sense of being tied in. They help you straighten your back. I’d want to match them with a long skirt that falls almost to the ground and let the symbolic toe design peek through.
This bag, a collaboration with Ethical Fashion Initiative and produced as part of a joint venture with craftspeople in Nairobi, Kenya, incorporates materials from past collections. The entirety of the article radiates the Vivienne spirit. The logo appliqué monogrammed A&V—for Andreas and Vivienne—is an appealing touch.
You wouldn’t want to miss the collaboration with Melissa, a Brazilian shoe brand. The brand is popular for its affordability and kitsch designs incorporating PVC as a material. In the past, I’ve loved wearing the brand’s collaboration with Anglomania and its arrangement of large heart shapes. The cutesy, toy-like appearance and the fruity aroma the brand applies to eliminate the rubber odor can be addictive.
This Armour Ring is the ring everyone wanted when we were young, designed like armor for your finger joint. Its visual impact still strikes me when I try it on. The triple-strand version features good volume for adult use. I tend not to wear accessories on my neck or ears, so a touch of dynamic attitude on my fingers is especially effective.
Next, I head to the first belowground floor, better known as the beauty floor. You can’t neglect your hands if you intend to make the most of your ideal fashion. Gel and artwork on your nails is certainly acceptable. But these days, for deliberate fashion, I’m in to flesh-colored nails. So, here I am, at the uka boutique.
uka’s color base coat comes in five colors that blend naturally with your skin. I love the 5/0 Sand Beige, which I think looks like an extension of your skin color. It reduces reddishness nicely and provides a minimal finish for your nails. You can also have a refreshing distraction with how the color changes as you apply one, two, and three layers.
The nail oils—spiritual healing for busy women—are also popular. The 18:30 Rose aroma takes wing and generates a moment of bliss in the face of impending deadlines. The brand also offers collaborations with fashion brands like Muveil. The creative packaging is a delight.
The nail and lip balm can go on your lips or on your fingertips. Opening the box, I spy, peeking out, a design of undeniable appeal. Such thoughtful details are very uka and refresh both body and mind. The rich texture enables you to first apply it on your lips and fingers, then rub the remaining balm onto your hands.
The boutique displays a selection of collaborations with da rosa available only until March 14. These items include Raisins au Sauternes (raisin chocolates), from which waft the scent of raisins soaked in wine made from noble rot grapes, and Pimandes (almond chocolates), with their pungent, spicy flavor. The chocolates can be paired with spirits. They’re perfect for someone like me who generally doesn’t like sweets.
If you’re in your 30s like me, you charge yourself with energy, both spiritually and materially, and don a single favorite item. You might fret about that narrow zone between the clothes you know you should wear and the clothes you want to wear. Here’s an opportunity to rush ahead and have fun with more dynamic styles that add a spark of life to your daily routine. Shopping at GINZA SIX puts me in the mood to do just that.
