Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Finally, some decent snowball/snowman proof snow. I cannot wait to dive into it and make snow angels and a complete winter wonderland fool of myself. And, it allows for some very cosy and warm winter accessories - remember how I went nuts for scarves?
Cold temperatures require means to get warm. And today my temperature rose. What do I say? Skyrocketed! Why? Forget hot cocoa, forget the mentioned scarves and other garments, forget the cosy fireplace. Remember Toga.
Toga is the label of the Japanese fashion designer Yasuko Furuta, that combines elegance, tradition and modern design esthetics. She presented her first collection at the end of the nineties already, when I was still admiring pink princess dresses and bows. And polkadots. Over the past decade she presented her Toga collections during Tokyo Fashion Week and opened many shops in Japan and overseas.
Now, what is more heartwarming than the prospect of ten cups of very hot and sweet cocoa combined with a extra large fireplace and several scarves? (Just to set the mood here.) Well, that would be - digital globe trotter as I am - exploring an extraordinary 2013 spring/summer collection. And sharing it, of course. And hope you're wowed as much as I was...
