Swat Girl Files…Girl No. 2
NAME: Kanami Kawaguchi
HOMETOWN: Osaka, Japan
DA LOOK: Wearing a vintage jacket a stylist friend refurbished with 29 pink (breast cancer awareness) ribbons on the side and one sewn in the back. Diesel shirt. Japanese boots, Essex brand with “Onsuka Tiger” signed on side.
DA JEANS: Hudson…SOFT! Usually it takes a long time to search for the right fit. Most important thing is that they are serrated. Especially at the knee, jeans usually get loose. But I’ve been wearing them for three weeks. They are perfect. I like the back pocket, the stitches. I wear them to castings. Jeans are my new home.
DA STYLE, CLOTHES: I like men’s stuff. Wired watches. Raf Simons. Dries Van Noten. Comme des Garcons. I love vintage belts. I have a navy belt that goes with everything. I always wear crazy socks. Patterns, Disney characters. When I go out to dinner, I will bring my heels, but I don’t wear them. My Christian Louboutin heels, I put them on my desk as interior design. My size is a nine but I wear an eleven, especially in Converse. I want to mix and match. It’s funny.
DA STYLE, LIFE: So many girls look the same in Tokyo, all copying the same magazine trends. In New York I go to the deli to get a Krispy Kreme doughnut. In Tokyo, people wait in line for two hours to get one. They wait four hours at Forever 21 to get in! I always play with clothing. I don’t want the same costume as other persons.
