Title: All things WTAPS./127th entry 「Even I have something called coordinate」

I think to coordinate
is balance and concept.
Especially in my case.
If it is just balance, you can gain experience
and be fresh enough and light enough
to not give a bad impression by working at it.
Then when something called concept
which is an element that disturbs from behind diagonally
comes in, things become just a little complicated.
of course, there are mistakes.
More like total failure fits better
that level so bad where you want to forget
because even a glimpse would be terrible.

Like that
plowing through the wrongs and rights of fashion
carrying a concept in your own style
doing this not so serious is what I like.

Title: All things WTAPS./126th entry 「The richness in simplicity」

Furniture released for a first time in this AW collection.
At a glance, they are "a regular chair" and "storage box".
And both of these carry the name STACKING
so they can be stacked and used or stored.

These are not fancy furniture
that have an aura of grand existence resisting to be moved.
They are quite the opposite
where when moved to somewhere
they sit naturally
becoming scenery that fits anywhere and blends in.
This usability is sort of the potential of what lies in simplicity.

Since the shape is simple
it gets judged easily as a suppression of luxury
but the wide variety of use which those luxurious furniture
do not have, may lead to the path of original richness.

Simple has such a meaning.

Title: All things WTAPS./125th entry 「Shade of color」

These SKIVVIES are a standard and will line up at the GIP-STORE from tomorrow
this time it is available in 3 colors and they are piece-dyed.
Piece-dyed means it has been dyed after it has been sewn together and taken form
by creating with a single material, to be able to create colors later
is very efficient, and is a technique for more towards mass production.
There is a distinct feel to the color and characteristic shades appear also.
WTAPS finishes with a certain twist added to the dye and method of wash.
Since there are variations in the shade, there are differences among the items, a characteristic used-like feel where each individual item is so slightly different.
Simple but a casual statement, it has a nice look so
this is 1 that I am looking forward to wearing through this summer.

Title: All things WTAPS./104th entry「The end and the start」

Just a little more camp talk.

Once back putting things away await.
Tear down on site is done quickly and minimal
so once back washing and drying
there are many things needing maintenance.
You keep it in shape where it can by used
when the time arrives, regardless of if it will not be
used for a while,
It is a pain, but it does not end unless you do this.
If you do not properly finish, there will be no next start.

Well anything is like that though.

Title: All things WTAPS./113rd entry「John Doe Archive」

It finally started after announcing it the other day
a new corner for the GIP-STORE official BLOG"Front Line"
called the "John Doe Archive".

This will have guerrillas that are in hiding from around
regardless of sex, age, nationality, status, etc.
where anyone can join;
I feel this is something very WTAPS and FPAR like.
It is also very interesting how people like us can see what
we cannot usually see
like hairstyles, bags, and other brands that are mixed
when wearing WTAPS and FPAR.

I am looking forward to what kind of guerrillas will appear
and how this will turn out.
