Innovative In Tokyo

tokyo-streetpeeps

So we haven’t put anything up from Japan in a long time, but this guy from Tokyo really illustrates what innovation in fashion is to me.

I think our generation has really gone into this mindset that in order to be innovative or to be truly original we have to reinvent the wheel, but as the above example shows, that is not true. He is original without having to put on random layers of fabric or wear those Star Trek glasses that kid on every fashion blog wears.

Maybe I’m a huge loser and know nothing about anything, but doesn’t it say something about ourselves that the only way we can be happy is to be “original.” That originality is less concerned with true form, rather, it is obsessed with attention-seeking qualities of an outfit or garment rather than something truly grounded in reality. What does it say about our society that we hate our reality that much that we want to escape from it constantly?
