Watch how Tokyo fashion editrix, stylist and blogger Misha Janette customized her iconic Furla Candy in this interesting video by David Bedoni. Also, hear Misha’s views about creativity, uniqueness and building your own story.
I am in love with the entirety of this short film especially the cinematography. It captures the true mood of Tokyo- hustling and bustling while being pretty with its bright lights and bold colors. From the cherry blossom trees, the famous Shibuya skyline, Shinto shrines and temples, and Harajuku fashion, it also features the traditional and contemporary representations of Japan, a manifestation of balance between the old and new which is present in this mega global city. And the final product of Misha’s bag customization is just adorable and too cute to be true. The combination of grotesque kawaii nails, kimono materials and snacks accessories made Misha’s Candy bag into a one-of-a-kind iconic piece that is truly original and in harmony with her style. Her bag actually is a representation of Tokyo itself- a creative piece made from the mergence of totally different origins.

I only wear wigs whenever there is a costume party or whenever I feel goofy. I never take them seriously. But my Tokyo girl Misha of Tokyo Fashion Diaries is taking them to a higher level with her new line of luxury accessory wigs Plumb (the first ever in the world). Don’t expect any of those boring plain-looking hairs that you usually see everywhere. This unique brand offers styled wigs which are based on runway looks and hairstyle trends featured on magazines. It’s the perfect accessory for people who want to experiment with their looks but are afraid to gamble on their personal style. They are heat resistant and can be plied with hair irons so it means that you can still put your personal touch on them whenever you want. The scalp caps are natural-looking and are also made from adjustable breathable nets. The best part is that each design is made in a limited number of pieces which means that you’ll hardly find another person with the same wig anywhere.
No one understands Japanese fashion more than Misha. She proved this when she chose Tokyo to be the birthplace of Plumb. People know no boundaries and push the limits when it comes to dressing up here thus, making it the perfect place for an accessory wig brand that is trendy but is very respectful to the individuality of its customer. Notice the Tokyo inspiration in her campaigns. The bravery, edginess and fun of the city are all present!
Last March 2, I went to Le Baron Tokyo in Aoyama for the Join For A Night Of Pink Champagne Bubbles And Love party which was sponsored by Moet Chandon and Le Baron (of course!!!). It was a night of art, music and fashion combined in one event. There was a live painting show which was lead by Aya Takano (member of the Kaikai Kiki art company lead by world renowned superflat artist Takashi Murakami), a live performance from the all-girls band group Mushroom Hotel (キノコホテル) and amazing DJs spinning namely Tokyo Dandy, Misha Janette, XUXU and others.
I had a great time busting on the dance floor especially when Tokyo Dandy started their spin set. All sorts of pop music from Japanese, Korean and international industry but what made me really dance was when they played Kylie Minogue’s 80’s hit “I Should Be So Lucky”. Hahaha!!! I was waiting for XUXU and Misha’s turn on the DJ booth but I had plans the next day, thus, I had to leave the party a little too early.
