Chouette Layered

Chouette Layered

>> That 65 kg of excess luggage can really be broken down thus – 30% second hand Comme/Junya buys from the sprawl of secondhand designer stores in Tokyo, 30% miscellaneous randomness that includes things like a pscyhedelic sweatshirt with a cat on it and a mug that says "You Great" on it so that I can have an uplifting cuppa tea everyday and then finally, the remaining 40% can be attributed to a Lucky Chouette haul from Seoul, that will basically keep me cosy in days to come.  You know things are desperate when you have to go to some janky shopping mall on the day you're leaving, asking what's the cheapest bag/suitcase they've got.  If you happened to be at Heathrow Airport Terminal 4 on Saturday early evening, you may have seen a Monsters Inc/Cookie Monster type creature by luggage belt 1, struggling with multiple cases and cursing out loud at its inept strength.  That would be me wearing the heaviest thing I had, being the faux fur delight of a coat by Lucky Chouette, to add to the stockpile of coats and jackets – a pale blue oversized number, a Clueless-esque primary coloured tweed jacket and a Chouette camo print lightweight jacket with a clever detachable peplum – all of which collectively pre-empts any "I need a new coat" qualms I might have.  This Lucky Chouette haul also neatly bookends the revelation of a trip I've had in Seoul that will hopefully continue on next year if I get to go again.  The short of it is that you will be clothed and clothed well on all levels of budget in Seoul.

    Hey, really curious to know where all the second hand shops are in japan, like where you got all the comme and junya stuff. I’m going to japan for the first time in february and want to spend most of it in second hand shops.
