(not so) random links

-mai of the SF street fashion blog fashion.ist mentioned a fashiony exhibit going on at san francisco’s asian art museum that looks intriguing, entitled stylized sculpture: contemporary japanese fashion from the kyoto costume institute. it’s on through january 6th of next year, and features the works of nippon’s most innovative and acclaimed designers, including rei kawakubo of comme de garcons, issey miyake, and yohji yamamoto. when i get a free moment, i want to dash over and take a look at what i am sure is amazingness. if you’re in the city by the bay, why don’t you do the same? thanks for mentioning it, mai!
