— ART, FASHION & MORE !
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve changed and been seeking something new little by little.
Long ago, a friend of mine was saying, “Maiko loves to style a combination of ‘60s and ‘70s, in eccentric ways”. Maybe I do. I’m certain that I derive happy feelings from ‘60s/‘70s-driven color palette. As you know spring/summer 2013 in fashion holded ‘60s style as one of must-have trends, and people were automatically in love with that flow. In contrast, I was somewhat cynical about brief burst of popularity and that would be only temporary for market. Anyway, as for my happy feeling for ’60s/’70s-driven color palette, it usually reaches the height in autumn when I wear a specific skirt- the moleskin lilac pencil skirt from Christian Lacroix.
I found it 3 years ago at Sweet Tater in Noho. Sadly this store (was at 280 Mulberry St.) had closed down but I remember that I felt real excitement when I was in there picking this skirt. Also, I can recall of a little more about that day, in the middle of August 3years ago; it was torrid. I was totally in the midst of heat wave but already excited about one of heavy materials, moleskin.
If you see me dressed in this skirt somewhere, you can always assume that I’ve changed channels to autumn. Actually, my hair is a lot shorter compared with past years, which means I’m able to rethink about how my outfit looks; I simply love the differences in the way I feel now.

Keeping myself and the eccentric color palette packed into a time capsule, I plan my next moleskin collecting trip to love the first chilly nights of the upcoming season.
