#102 Julian Imrie, PM2:38, 71 Prince Street, SOHO








Vest: Rising Sun, Shirt: Vintage, Pants: Mr.Freedom, Shoes: Julian Boots

He told me that he makes boots on his own.

This city is full of designers and artists so I've got a lot of opportunities 
which I can talk to them and think about "manufacturing" again. 

Let's say, photography.
Photographing street styles in the city.
I just define it as "the secondary creation" for myself.

This can never happen unless the manufacturing, "the primary creation", happens.

I don't mean to say that which one is better or worse,
but I'm sure that somethings new come up by being inspired by those initial actions.

Great ideas are spread out through people and things in that way.

That's how we step in a new world.


ブーツを作っているという彼。

この街はたくさんのアーティストやデザイナーに溢れている。
そういった人々と触れ合う機会の中で改めてもの作りというものについて考える。

例えば写真。
街でのファッションに特化して写真を撮る一つのスタイル。
これを二次的なクリエイション、と自分なりに定義していて。

それは一次的作業、もの作りというものがあるからこそ存在し得る。

もちろんどちらがいいとか悪いとかの話ではなくて、
そういう人々のインスピレーションの後を追ってまた新たなものが生まれるということ。

そうやって色々な発想が人とものを通して膨らんで行く。

#101 Browne Andrews, PM5:29, 59 Mercer Street, SOHO






Pants: Band of Outsiders, Shoes: Converse, Everything else: Vintage 

The jacket which somewhat reminds me of Japanese "Kimono" plus 
converse sneakers and the hat which looks a little worn out.

This contrast indeed interested me, and at the same time, 
I felt I have to stop walking to talk to him.

I have seen a bunch of clothing and styles in my life 
and I kind of figured out that the moment the clothing come to life is like a chemical reaction.

We could produce something, explode and fail, or sometimes we have no result.

Those people who have been putting on million kinds of clothes, like a scientist, 
could make it successful pretty much all the time. 

I mean, the entire process to the outfit is not just "what to wear",
but a sort of a creation that produces something with A, B and C.

どこか日本の着物を思わせる羽織、
対照的にボロボロのハットと足下はコンバース。
なんだか少し突拍子もないイメージについつい足を止め、話しかけてしまう。

今までたくさんの服を色々な形で見てきて思うけれど、
その服達が活きる瞬間というのはいわゆる化学反応のようなもので。

何かが生成されるか、どかんと失敗するか、時には何も起きないことも。

あらゆる物に袖を通し、実験を繰り返してきたある意味科学者彼ら。
その成功率が極めて高い。

何を着るか、ではなく何と何で何を創るかという作業。
