Title: All Things WTAPS./360th entry「Elusive」

THE TRUNK MARKET is an event that takes place regularly at Fukuromachi Park in Hiroshima. WTAPS attended this event as NO.813.
NO.813 was a concept shop at THE PARKING GINZA that was in the underground area of the Ginza Sony Building. It was a shop to output what was cultivated in the city known as Tokyo, taking the country code for Japan, 81, and adding the area code of Tokyo, 3. After THE PARKING GINZA ended, it resurrected as a limited-time-pop-up shop around the end of last year at Shinjuku Isetan. This time, it was resurrected once again at THE TRUNK MARKET. Not a regularly scheduled shop, but a shop that pops up out of nowhere, and quietly disappears. I feel this is how NO.813 will continue on. Leaving behind anticipation of when and where will it appear again?

Title: All Things WTAPS./359th entry「Let's go see the new WTAPS」

The 2018 AW exhibition finished last week.  I always look forward to what kind of reactions there will be from the time the samples get here; I feel thankful when that time comes to receive the impressions, and I also discover many new things.

Along with a feeling of appreciation for all the people that made it out regardless of the timeframe being right before Golden Week, I also felt that I need to be able to present it in a manner that meets the demands and interests; this exhibition gave me a new mindset.

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.
