Yesterday I went to Shibuya with the lovely Hana, you can see some photos from our lunch at 109 here, and while I was there I was able to pick up the W*C summer catalog at the W*C store. They were so nicely displayed at the entrance, I didn't even have to enter the store or speak to a staff person to get one.
There are some very nice pieces in the summer catalog that haven't been added to the webstore yet, so I thought I should share the photos with everyone. These are just photos from my camera and not scans so the quality is just average, but I'm sure someone will scan them in soon.
W*C summer catalog!
First there is the cover, it's a very lovely dark and purply cover that doesn't really seem summer like at first glance, but Chinatsu has fake freckles on her face. I know I get more freckles during summer, what about you haha!
I just took photos of the item pages, not all the photography shots of Chinatsu, since it's the new items that I think are very interesting. You can click on the images to go to the page to see them fullsized.
The item I was/am most excited about is the short length yukata with kuma-tan print! It's just so cute, and of course summer is the yukata season. How cleaver of Chinatsu to make an iconic yukata like this XD And it comes with a leopard print obi and geta as a set for 12800Y. I'd love to own it, but I think there wouldn't be many occasions when I could wear it haha!
What items look interesting to you?
I like the denim high-waist skirt, yellow cardigan, Kuma-tan hemp hoodie and of course the yukata. I took a snap of the page of Chinatsu wearing it. It's really cute, and the short length should be quite cooling in the summer^^

Apparently W*C's summer concept theme involves forgieners and showing Japan's fashion to the world. The I Love Japan and I'm From Japan shirts obviously are part of this theme. But in the concept statement she mentions Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Lindsey Lohan as fashion icons people are really interested in... Really? Not Chanel, Armani, Dior etc haha!
