From one fashion week to the other, street styles has always made an impact on people who are looking for fashion inspiration. After a marathon of fashion weeks from New York, London, Milan and Paris, one would expect a little street style fatigue. But at Tokyo Fashion week it was a whole different story. With the main show circuit circling branded and high end brands, Tokyo’s street wear is the total opposite, favouring unique and eclectic combinations that include no name brands with more recognisable pieces. When it comes to the streets of Tokyo, basically anything goes!
