Title: All Things WTAPS./263rd entry「The timing to relish the seasons」

Last month the AW season just launched, but from this week the next SS exhibition will start.
Although it is now the AW season, I feel that it is really not that cool at all during the normal daily routine, but, for example, when I notice the dealers that come are wearing long sleeved items, or when choosing candy for the coffee booth at the exhibition, or when preparing hot coffee, these small things make me think that AW has already started and SS will will come again soon. Thinking of such things make me want to hurry up and wear SS items; my feelings rush ahead and I sort of feel somewhat wasteful. It may already be one step late, when you really feel the peak of the season.

Title: All Things WTAPS./262nd entry 「Things that do not get done in a single bound」

The 2016 SS exhibition is already next week.
This time also there is a new attempt implemented; finishing the lookbook shoot the other day, I was sitting back and thinking about how the change was visually prominent.
It was a really great opportunity to look back at myself because when something new comes in, the view you had up until now really stands out.
Also at the same time, I really felt how just because it is the same work every time, it does not mean it becomes easier.
I think that is because as the seasons go by, we are definitely moving forward, and each one of us involved in the process wishes for those that will see it and touch it to be able to feel this progression.

Title: All Things WTAPS./261st entry「End up laughing feeling the happiness」

I still have moments of self-hatred from the awkwardness, and feeling unaccustomed towards people I meet for the first time. But then I also end up at my wit's end in such situations where both parties try hard to get closer somehow, and end up creating an awkwardness of a new dimension.
In those situations where the atmosphere is one of checking each other's distance, when you end up laughing together at something stupid, or something really minor, the thick tension in the air eases up at once. It is not something new, but I feel it is quite important when there is some sort of light relief like being able to think how "oh, we can laugh at the same thing." Not only for people I meet for the first time, but even for that uneasiness after arguing with a friend, laughter is what helps sweep things away. I guess really thinking hard about something that simple, shows how stiffly frozen I was.

Title: All Things WTAPS./260th entry「Things that make you happy without any real reason」

I believe stickers are things that are really easily transacted, anyone gets, gives, and buys them.

Of course I am not a person that is a hardcore collector, but I do have more than a few myself. In my case, when I get them, I do not have a clear reason like I will stick it there, I will use it for that. I guess you could say they just keep piling up in the posse box, but it is true that they make me happy for no real reason. Also, stickers are the first thing I grab when I feel I want to customize the notebook I am using, or when I want to add something extra to a new gadget. I guess that is the feel I have gained from the times.

Title: All Things WTAPS./259th entry「Identity that can be seen in the footprints」

It is roughly 10 years ago that the collaboration with VANS took on this current form. The project which started with SYNDICATE, has changed now to the VAULT line, and releases have been periodical even since then.
As a collection it is of course WTAPS x VANS. But, the feelings, images, and fragments of sources are from the Director's memory and experience from the path he has taken, so there is a slight feeling of how we would like people to know this. It is not just a product, and not just a sneaker. The reason I feel that way is probably because even I have an enormous amount of love for the brand called VANS. But I guess if you classify it as a thing, they are just shoes.
