Shooting for JJ magazine and last day in Tokyo

TheBlondeSalad-6470

Here is how I spent last Monday, my fifth and last (unfortunately) day in Tokyo. The morning was dedicated to the shooting for the JJ japanese magazine which, thanks to the perfect japanese organization, also finished one hour before the schedule. Hair and makeup was done by a wonderful team in my hotel room: It has never happened to me before to have my hair and makeup done with such a beautiful view :)
The one you see in photos is the first of 3 looks I created for the shooting: I was wearing a total black with sequined golden blazer, the new Mulberry Bayswater found the day before at Ragtag and the vernis Louboutin, that I exchanged with flats for the afternoon.
After a sushi lunch in a typical restaurant (Thanks Kenta for the advice!) and a last trip in Shibuya, Carolina and I were invited to the Murua showroom, a beautiful japanese brand for which Carolina modeled last year. I met the staff who also liked our tshirts (go WERELSE!), I admired their new collection and I got a lovely long blazer, that I wore for the night.
Last dinner in Tokyo couldn’t take place in any other place than Gonpachi, which inspired Quentin Tarantino for the famous fight scene at the restaurant in Kill BIll (one of my favourite movies). I really hope to be back in Tokyo soon, It gave me such strong feelings.

Ecco come ho passato lo scorso lunedi, il mio quinto ed ultimo (purtroppo) giorno a Tokyo. La mattina è stata dedicata allo shooting per il magazine giapponese JJ che, grazie all’organizzazione perfetta è finito anche un’ora prima del previsto. Il trucco e parrucco è stato fatto da un team eccezionale nella mia camera d’hotel: mai mi era capitato di farmi truccare e pettinare con una simile vista :)

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in Tokyo

TheBlondeSalad-6553

The main reason of my visit to the wonderful Tokyo was the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out on the 5th November: I was one of the official blogger of the day, also called Ultrabloggers :) The experience was absolutely positive: we got all together at 11, starting our visits from the new Costume National concept store, and then to all the other boutiques to meet editors, designers and followers of the blog who filled me with smiles :) Omotesando was fulll of people, all the stores had limited edition pieces or different kinds of animation: an experience which left me speechless. And japanese people look like they’re from another world: all so nice, polite, positive and emotional. At night we were invited to the Michael Kors party at the American embassy, with a live performance by Jennifer Hudson… Carolina, Mattias, Richi and I then ended the night with a drink at the New York bar at Park Hyatt, from the movie “Lost in translation”… Oh Tokyo!

Il motivo principale della mia meravigliosa visita a Tokyo era proprio la Vogue Fashion’s Night Out di sabato 5 Novembre: ero una dei blogger ufficiali della giornata, i cosidetti Ultrabloggers :) L’esperienza è stata assolutamente positiva: ci siamo trovati tutti insieme alle 11 del mattino comincando la nostra visita dal nuovo concept store appena inaugurato di Costume National, per poi spostarci nelle varie boutique incontrando editori, designer e tanti follower che ci hanno riempita di sorrisi :) Omotesando era affolatissima, tutti i negozi offrivano prodotti limited edition o tipi di animazione diverse: un’esperienza che mi ha lasciata a bocca aperta.
