This is a costume I didn’t end up using for my photoshoot, but it’s pretty cute.
For my column in FLOOR, we held a “maple-leaf manjuu” eating contest.
We had this many, from all different kinds of makers~~~
Our guest was someone I hadn’t seen in 10 years, DJ HASEBE-san.
He’s so nice, it’s unbelievable~
The editor-in-chief lining up the classic-flavored ones and taking a picture by himself (deadline fast approaching).
Chocolate flavor play-off.
As our investigations into the joint development maple leaf by Anderson and Nishikido added up, it was a draw as expected.
If I were to describe it? There’s kind of a coiled… um… bread in a shape like Mothra’s chrysalis?!
And there’s chocolate inside… It’s like that, a nostalgic flavor!
Green tea flavor play-off.
Made with a kind of green tea powder mixed into the batter or something.
I love these kinds of easygoing projects.
I like the kind you boil for one minute more than the kind you boil for three.
I’m not good with the heat.
Recently, I’ve been recording my album.
I’m making it with a lot of people, so many songs are being completed~
It’s full of songs I love.
And now, I’ve also begun to design the clothes for next year’s spring/summer Carolina collection.
Up until this point, Carolina’s “closet” line had been created by my assistants,
but next season (February - April next year) I’ll be making both. So I have a lot going on.
Last night, I was able to come home early, so I watched a DVD I’d always been meaning to see, the Hollywood version of “Godzilla.”
I’ve seen it in the past, but don’t they have the tokusatsu museum up lately? So I’ve been feeling a little nostalgic for it.
Of course I’m talking about the American one, so they’re quicker than Godzilla, and probably pretty strong.
For some reason, when I watch the Godzilla series, I get into a complicated mood.
Animals’ motives are always simple. But humans… Like that.
If I watch it in the mood to look at Mutsugoro Animal Kingdom, it’s dangerous.
Right now, I’m also renting Godzilla vs. Mothra.
Mothra’s form is a little sad.
I need to watch that.
I love watermelon.
So much I could turn into a rhinoceros beetle.
For those who had the first and business class passes at my one-man last month,
I wrote “thank you” on their commemorative pictures and delivered them to their homes.
I wonder if they made it?
This week was the Carolina autumn/winter exhibition.
Carolina’s main line
was the one I was in charge of, so I’ll show you a few of the coords I put together!
First, Carolina’s staple item, a onepiece dress in two pale colors. 12,600 yen each
I made the design a little simpler than usual.
I added a cloth star shape motif on the collar.
You can also wear this onepiece like this with other items or with knits.
Next, shirts made in the same colors. 10,500 yen each
They were made to be able to work in both sweet and mature coordinates.
Number pattern. onepiece comes in two colors 15,750 yen each, skirt also in two colors 13,650 yen each
Even though these are all autumn and winter items, they’re made so that they can be worn for a long time up until spring and during all seasons.
And then, a onepiece I recommend for somewhat dressy occasions. 19,950 yen each
I used pearls on the collar, for wedding parties and such.
There’s also a black version of this same design.
A fluffy knit jacket. comes in three colors 24,150 yen each
Ladylike winter coat. Also comes in charcoal.
I want a lot to be layerable underneath, so I stood a little firm on the price. 19,950 yen each
An interesting combination coat. Really warm. also comes in black 39,900 yen each
… coming soon !!!
In-store preorders for the new items will go from July 27th to the 29th. On ZOZO, it seems there’ll be preorders available for some of the items starting from the first of next month.

I also got a look at the Carolina closet line my assistants have been working hard to make,
and there were some adorable knit cardigans and things~! There’s a lot more I didn’t show here,
so try having a look at the store in person.
Since it’s gotten warm and all,
it’ll be time for a shampoo soon.
I’m on the cover~
There’s a special feature on my personal styling for summer!
Vera Wang wedding dresses have finally come to Japan.
Opens in Ginza on the 8th. I went to the reception~
In any case, you know~ The dresses,
they’re very well-designed, but they’re elegant! There were a lot of beautiful ones.
They also have shoes made from the same material to match, very fashionable.
