Or, y'know, happy Tuesday or whatever ahaha.
Welp, sure has been a while since I did any fashion-related posts, let alone Japanese fashion! The last time I think was 2013 for multiple brands, including Reinda. But, I saw that people were coming to my blog looking for the 2015 Autumn/Winter collections, and I'm more than happy to oblige!
So, here's I think an almost preview of Rienda's upcoming Autumn/Winter 2015 collection, with a showcase of co-ordinates (sort of a Japanese term for outfits)! And some of them are so cute!! ♡o｡.(✿ฺ｡ ✿ฺ)
I do personally quite adore Rienda, as while some Japanese fashion is known for being quite over the top (think Lolita fashion - all extreme frills, all the time), Rienda boasts a very classic, simple style, which I find these co-ordinates showcase quite well.
These are what I would call wardrobe staples. Like, when Gok Wan was all about a capsule wardrobe? I'm reminded of that when I see this; plain colours on items of clothing that can be mixed and matched, with bold pops of classic colour perfect for Autumn, such as a burgundy-red and mustard-yellow, easily complementing the whites, dark greys, blacks, and blues. LOVE. IT. If the shipping charge wasn't ridiculous getting clothing from Japan to England, I'd probably buy about 60-80% of these co-ordinates ahaha (ignoring accessories - I'm a Plain Jane when it comes to them, I have one necklace that I wear every day, and hats just do not suit me paha).
One thing I'm not a fan of though when it comes to Japanese fashion, are the peplum style items they won't quit throwing out there, both skirts and tops. I'm just not a fan. The peplum skirts don't bother me, but the t-shirts and tops always look too short and with peplum on top of that, they just wouldn't suit my figure. I like over-sized tops, shirts, and jumpers paired with more form-fitting skirts, shorts, leggings, etc. as I'm not too confident in my stomach and hips area, so that's just my personal preference (o≧▽ﾟ)oニパッ
I'll have to have a look at some other Japanese fashion brands to see if there are any distinctive trends for Autumn/Winter, but so far I'm really liking what Rienda are previewing!
Do you like Rienda's early Autumn/Winter 2015 collection? Are there any other Japanese fashion brands you're liking at the moment, or would like to see a post on? Let me know in the comments below!
