Potty for Q-Pot

In between writing SERIOUS words about shows and finding out about the ins and outs of the Tokyo Fashion industry by nodding earnestly at important fashion movers and shakers, I enjoyed the respite of going to a place like Q-Pot.  It's hard to liken this jewellery label to anything but I suppose Tatty Devine would be a fairly close match, except designer Tadaaki Wakamatsu places a much larger emphasis on food and Disney, with whom Q-Pot regularly collaborate.  The list of Q-Pot product lines is numerous but all you really need to know is when stepping into their Harajuku store is that you'll be inundated with doses of irresistable cuteness compacted into charms, rings, necklaces and earrings alongside the Casper soundtrack (anything James Horner does is instantly emotive no?).  Most of Q-Pot's jewellery is fun, non-precious and slightly addictive once you get hooked onto your first piece.  One cupcake ring surely needs to be followed up with a macaroon charm, a croissant necklace, some penne pasta earrings and so on…

Q-Pot's flagship store doesn't normally allow pics but I happened to be with the lovely Mai of Mai Sassy Girl, who happened to get married in special custom-made Q-Pot wedding rings and tiara (they offer a wedding service for those that want something a little less conventional than the usual high rollin' labels…) and so I was lucky enough to get snap happy.  Lovely Alice here decked out in chocoloate-bar Q-Pot glasses and choco dress was on hand to help guide us through it all…

… not that Q-Pot's jewellery needs much in-depth explanation.  If it's edible and happens to be pretty to look at, basically designer Wakamatsu will turn it into jewellery form.  In many ways some of the jewellery can be traced to the "art" of plastic display food, which the Japanese have perfected.

My favourite piece in the current collection has to be the hamburger bun charm set necklace where you can customise what goes in your burger by buying components such as the lettuce, tomato, cheese and onion and little feet if you wish.  Opening Ceremony seem to be the sole international stockist of this range…

I got my Q-Pot addiction started with this cupcake ring…

…and a stackable burger ring set, which I wouldn't even consider wearing without all the complete components…
