Masayo KishiWhat’s hot right now:

Rihanna and Beyoncé—who imagined that mainstream R&B singers would start projecting their images in European-inspired avant-garde costumes (except Grace Jones)?
This is a real, mind-blowing metamorphosis.
In terms of designers, I really like Rodarte. I also think the ruffle blouse from Francesco Scognamiglio’s s/s ’09 collection, the studded leather skirt from Giles Deacon and the leather high-waisted short pants from Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony are all very cool as fetish-inspired items. The Central St. Martin’s fashion fashion graduation show was also very fresh as well as Brazilian designer Bruno Grizzo’s elegant a/w ’09 collection. My very personal new items are Camouflage Magazine and new singer Tatsuya.
