Japanese vs Romanian Fashion Culture

“Also, many fashion-conscious Japanese still tend to think in terms of logos,” Sugatsuke added. “They go for the huge, conspicuously recognizable, emblazoned icon because they don’t want to pay huge sums of money on things other people won’t recognize or understand.” reports Kaori Shoji in an article I’ve just read in the Herald Tribune … must read the rest … here…

The same issue seems to be the problem for Romanian people – THE LOGO. Why buy a designer piece that doesn’t scream Gucci? Purchasing a designer item becomes an action of showing the world that you have money and belong to a different social class. Because designer clothes are expensive and not everybody can wear them – might they think! And not because designer clothes are expensive because of their quality.

The lack of Haute Couture in our country, seems to be another common point in comparison with Japan. We don’t understand fashion culture, Japanese people are new to it, as their haute couture is definitely – THE KIMONO

My question: Will Romanian people ever understand fashion, will we ever have haute couture?

  • Da …. peste multi, multi ani. momentan sunt in faza “arhaica”, dar asta nu se intimpla doar in RO, ci in majoritatea tarilor in care brusc “consumul” s-a schimbat – aka America Latina. generatia “new mon(k)ey” :))

  • eu cred ca e asa. oamenii se imbraca din doua motive: de frig si pentru statut. daca la primul motiv nu avem o problema, la al doilea se incetosaza peisajul. pentru ca,fie ca e vb de logo-maniaci, fie de uber fitzosi imbracati in vintage, ei transmit basically acelasi mesaj: eu sunt cutare si sunt mai special pentru ca ma imbrac asa.

  • Subiectul asta ma intristeaza. Ca sa ajungem la nivel de haute couture avem de nevoie de educatie fashion, ne trebuie o baza cat de cat si eu o vad, cel putin deocamdata, destul de fragila. Poate ca si japonezii inca mai gandesc in termen de logo-uri afisate cat mai la vedere, dar macar la ei exista generatia manga, tinerii au un alt stil, mult mai dechis si mai funky. In contextul asta, cred ca japonezii vor ajunge inaintea noastra sa se exprime in termeni de haute couture in moda. Cat despre noi, ei bine, mai avem de asteptat…

  • la japonezi (si asiatici in general) se poarta layering-ul..ceea ce la noi s-ar purta la vreo 3-4 ocazii la o japoneza se poarta deodata, una peste alta: un pantalon va cere o fusta pe deasupra, eventual si o rochie mini pe post de bluza..samd.
    Si pt ca ei ca persoane fizice nu pot iesi in evidenta prin ceea ce fac ei tind sa se diferentieze prin haine.Si in acelasi timp sa se conformeze cu ceea ce e considerat norma ( haina de firma)…impusca doi iepuri in acelasi timp
