Last Sunday’s New York Times has a fantastic magazine fashion spread, Pink Panthers, focused on men’s pink outfits modeled in Tokyo. Even the ties, shoes and flip flops are pink.
Although the designers are European and American, there’s something uniquely Tokyo about the male embrace of full-body pink. And I love how the fashion and models pop in front of everyday Tokyo streetscapes that are both ugly and evocative of my favorite mega-city.
I .> Adult culture is so stupid. Only young people would break rules like this and wear all pink. Then they get “too old” and life’s pretty much over. At least, that’s the impression I get. It’s a shame.
