Title: All Things WTAPS./358th entry「Not giving up easily」

When it becomes suddenly warm, I feel a sense of resistance building up within me towards the season changing, from my impatience of not being able to enjoy that subtle transitionary period.

Personally, I feel confused, because when I thought "I will wear this when it gets a little warmer," I did not expect < a little warmer > to be this warm.

Then again, once I go outside, the feeling of regret from not being able to wear the coordinate I wanted disappears in an instant, and I enjoy the nice weather; the confusion is just really something personal.

But, I still cannot get rid of my expectations for a suddenly cold day, possibly at the beginning of the rainy season, so I can wear that new item I have not been able wear yet.

Title: All Things WTAPS./357th entry「Foresight」

The WTAPS 2018SS season has launched.  Those who have our catalog probably already know this season's lineup, and for us that are on the production-side should have already seen the items plenty of times, but it is still troublesome how there are still things that linger in the mind making you feel like "I want that."

Compared to before, I do not feel that different from how I felt during the exhibition and when it actually launches, but still what I want "now" is something that I can only understand "now".  While making such excuses, I anguish over if I should buy something or not, what I want because of how I feel now, that I could not foresee 6 months ago.

Title: All Things WTAPS./356th entry「I guess I actually like it」

I feel that anyone can have one of those days where there was something that made you feel irritated or gloomy, and you wake up feeling really miserable. 

Regardless, I try to switch modes, since I have to face what I have to do.  While still not being quite cheerful, I put together my outfit feeling "I will just wear whatever," but then the beanie does not go with the jacket...etc. etc. and my taste and style starts to burst out.   

In the end "whatever" just does not work, and without realizing it, I am feeling better, and head to the train station satisfied by the items I chose from thoroughly thinking it out. 

I felt this morning that clothing for me, is not just something to wear for the daily life, but it is something that moves me that day.

Title: All Things WTAPS./355thentry「Now」

A launch event for the WTAPS archive book that was released last November, WTAPS® 01, will take place at INVINCIBLE in Taiwan this weekend, so I was going through material from when we had the launch at BOOKMARC last year; not much time has gone by since then, but it seemed like something that took place a while back.

At around the same time, i-D had an interview article with Nishiyama based around the archive book, and I was blown away once again by how deep the activities have been for the last 20 plus years.

The present is here by connecting the past.  Live in the present and face tomorrow.  I would like to cherish the past, do what I can do the fullest now, and broaden my outlook of the future.  Not a feeling from emotion; it is just how I feel.

Title: All Things WTAPS./354th entry「An interest that urges action」

When you get that feeling of "I want to wear that," you start analyzing various factors at once and finally decide whether or not to buy; I think this is something everyone does and something anyone can relate to, the enjoyable experience where you get an uplifting feeling of anticipation from the actual process of letting your imagination run, and contemplating over this and that.

At home, at work, or at some store, the speed you turn the pages or the time you focus on a photograph may differ, but I would like it to be something that you want to hold in your hands to have a look. It would be great if the relationship that starts from there is something positive that continues for a long time. I think of such things when the completion of the catalog is right around the corner.
