Lately I have seen &Other Stories doing a lot of interesting co-lab with various artists and brands for some really cool collections, ( ex. Lykke Li ). And this is what happen when they joined forces with VANS. With the updated old-school style sneakers, adding a playful print and a touch of peachy nude coloured leather which is perfect for summery light. The results are one-of-a-kind leather shoes combine the iconic shapes of classic VANS with a cool, minimalist twist of &Other Stories.

Always a fan of Japanese fashion revelation since the era of Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake to Sacai and Anrealage, I was mesmerised by the great details and how international standard TOGA had made. Collage of textures, contradicting colour, and clashing fiber are all oddly beautiful (a very great juxtaposition actually). Their clothes are so tactile, inviting the viewer to touch and see how they were created. Some of them are adorned with mirror pieces. I also find their accessories quite alluring like patent clutches and net sandals. This was the first time I experienced TOGA in a very intimate place and of course Yasuko Furata name became the one to watch from now on. Go go, Japanese revelation!
