A few weeks back, Mark and I had dinner with Fati in Glorietta 5. We ate at Gerry's since Mark was craving for Filipino food. This was the time he just got back from Japan.
While we were eating, they were playing these different music videos on screen. One that particularly caught my attention featured a young Japanese woman who was going around the city, haunted by a particular song and a group of dancing locals. It ended with her going loca in bed, then his "father" turned out to be someone else in disguise.
Weird, but interesting.
The problem was, I couldn't hear what the song was. After all, this was Gerry's. So, the crowd was noisy, plus there were around 6 TVs playing simultaneously. But since I found the music video rather entertaining, the images were left in my mind.
Because of that, the next few days after that night were spent trying to figure out what that video was. Enter all these on-line search tools like google and youtube to help me out.
I searched for things like "Japanese woman going crazy" or "Japanese people dancing by the beach." This went on for a few days until...
Jackpot! I found the song and the music video. It turned out to be a cover of "Rather be."
The first 2 collections of Lemaire for Uniqlo must've been so popular, they've decided to make it permanent.
Similar to how Jil Sander had her +J collection under the brand, Christophe Lemaire now helms the Uniqlo U brand.
My first encounter with this collaboration was during my last trip to Tokyo last September. They were already buzzing about it in the Ginza main store, and they had images of the pieces from the collection.
True to Lemaire's aesthetic, a lot of them were chunky knits, comfy pieces and basics with a twist. It's perfect for countries with sweater weather.
Unfortunately, we don't have that kind of weather here in Manila. But hey, that didn't stop Uniqlo from bringing it in.
Yup, the collection is here in Manila! They already have it in the Uniqlo Megamall store, and it's a pretty solid collection.
They have this nice duo tone knit dress that's very versatile. Plus a black, denim dress that has that Paris chic to it.
