Fragrance Girl + Vogue Nippon

Campus Cool

OF COURSE Balenciaga's multi-cultural, collegiate collection of school girl blazers, ethnic scarves and jodphurs made the cut for the coveted September cover of my favorite (you know it) -- Vogue Nippon. I can already see the REAL Harajuku girls (not Gwen's exploited versions) interpreting this in their own way - the whole mix screamed of modern Japanese influences. My question is more about the title "Reality Vogue". Is this in reference to the "wearability" of the collection or the reality that you can already purchase those coveted pieces at Zara?? Just asking.

Balenciaga, and more:
