Title: All Things WTAPS./207th entry「YOUTHFUL DAYZ」

The 2014 AW season will launch this weekend.
Time truly flies by, there is only 1/3 left of this year.

Authentic, and standard.
Those words mean to not change a thing while flowing along with the stream while fitting in places, but it can also mean to change subtle inconveniences constantly to pursue a standard that will last.

It is not about which is correct, most likely it is about how you grasp it and how you utilize it.
Just like how you pull out an old BUDS and wear it and get that feeling of how you really liked it, while at the same time you throw on a new BUDS and think how this one is easier to blend and style now; sounds conflicting, but I feel it is the same.

Title: All Things WTAPS./206th entry「Camping」

Around we the end of July, all of us went on a 3 day/2 night camping trip.

Honestly I am a novice of novices when it comes to camping since my memory is not even sure if I have gone once or twice when I was a child; I am one who rarely goes out, my preparation was hesitantly done by watching others and imitating.
To my surprise my camping skills shined; no it did not, I was not able to help out in any way but it was still fun nonetheless.

The feeling of living with a group of people was like school, and just eating ice-cream and catching dragon flies with the kids was relaxing, also it was fun eating all meals properly.
The crispy sausage curry (ONDEN style) we had in the morning of the day we left, is something I end up really wanting to eat when I happen to think back about it.

Title: All Things WTAPS./103rd entry「Relax」

Most people get nervous when asked if it is ok to take a picture. I am terrible, my face gets all frozen to the point I even ask myself why so bad.
But, by being allowed to take a photo several times and both parties start getting used to it, the people being photographed seem to gradually lower their guard.
I am happy when I can capture such a relaxed expression, so each time I try to make them laugh somehow, but this is pretty difficult.
There is always something to learn when I see people that are good friends doing a shoot. I happened to think of how maybe my nervousness is being conveyed by trying so hard to make them relax and relax.

Title: All Things WTAPS./202nd entry「Preparation for summer」

July has already passed its midpoint and this is the season where I worry about washings while in fear of thinking how it will be getting hotter and hotter from here.
So, I feel many people will going to summer getaways during their days off.
Summer getaway. Such a nice ring to it. Evading the heat and enjoying summer.
Such an ideal concept.

Don't you think the good thing about summer getaways are how you have to prepare considering both the heat and coolness?
Of course your clothes and shoes, along with pain killers, ointments, beach sandals, and also maybe a shemagh for when it gets cool.
Items which usually do not mix in the daily life all together in one bag. That feeling of going out.

Being stoked from this non-daily routine; something you are not sure to toss in the bag further adds to this feeling.

Title: All Things WTAPS./201st entry「It was in 2006」

The WTAPS atelier is the name for the place that used to be in Jingumae.
I still remember clearly the first time I visited there. Especially the shock like buzz!! sound of the old school doorbell. The first memory I remember is how my heart was about to jump out.
Then, once I stepped inside, the moment I saw the huge pile of VHS tapes, CDs, and cassettes.
For some reason I got very stoked. Once you see something like that, it is natural for people to get caught up reading the labels.
After starting work at WTAPS, this is something I saw a lot, so I feel that is statistically correct.
Each time I saw such action, I would sympathize inside with that person "I know, I know".
