Title: All Things WTAPS./269th entry「Exhibition」

There was an exhibition that took place in LA which gathered all of the models from VANS SYNDICATE which is having their 10th anniversary.
Since WTAPS was a part of the line from early on, there was a rush of reminiscence as I saw them being displayed at a place like this.
There was also a slight feeling of loneliness too looking at models and textiles that did not make production that could only be seen here.
It was a festive night where a wide range of people were seriously checking out each model, and I felt how they were only a pair of shoes, but there was no way you could measure the feelings that were put into them.

Title: All Things WTAPS./268th entry「Annual functions」

This year was another year we went to pray at the Tori no Ichi. This year was pretty warm compared to how it usually is around this time of year, and it felt sort of hot wearing our hanten; it was a little weird since Tori no Ichi is usually an event where you feel the end of the year.
But, 2015 will end in a month and a half. I feel that the end of the year is approaching when you spend some quiet and peaceful time appreciating how the year was another year that went by safely.

Title: All Things WTAPS./267th entry「AUTHENTIC S」

The AUTHENTIC S model will be re-released from VANS SYNDICATE which we have been collaborating together with since their start in 2005.
I still wear the same item which I bought back then so I felt sort of surprised when I heard 10 years ago being said.
Mustard color Authentics. A vibrant color that draws attention, but you have to admit that on their own they seem kind of eccentric. But, in my case, instead of an impression of how they look, I have an impression deep down of how this was the start.

Title: All Things WTAPS./266th entry「Trying each thing yourself」

Once the exhibition is over, the serious process of working on the catalog starts.
This time there were many meetings regarding revisions to the catalog format. The shoot is not for a little while, but I know how it will end up being right around the corner as we work on and think about other things.
Of course there is a feeling of uncertainty when trying something new that you have not experienced before, but the positive feelings of looking forward to it are greater. Adding to the elated feeling, there is also the joy of being able to add to the things I have experienced. As many different people help me everyday, I feel how there are many things out there that I still do not know about.

Title: All Things WTAPS./265th entry「Inevitable surprise」

When you hear VANS, of course what comes to mind are sneakers. I really do not think there are many people out there who would think of anything else first. That is why I get happy for some reason when I find things that say VANS on it which you can wear such as a t-shirt or a coach jacket. WTAPS started making VANS related apparel from 2010; there are not that many types of items made, but each release I feel like I got a little lucky. Maybe that is because I feel like I have always idolized the foundation of the culture the brand called VANS has built.
