Leather and lace and all things ace as Yu slamdunks the third look for Ell Eff Double-U
Yu Masui is a London based fashion journalist who started his career as a buyer at the legendary Pineal Eye. Introducing many emerging talents, his selections also extended to several Japanese boutiques. He's since returned to his roots as a fashion writer, a discipline he studied, contributing to leading Japanese titles. Masui is also a self-confessed "lazy blogger", happily writing about food, travel, lifestyle and sometimes fashion on Yu ♥..., parallel to his deadlines.
Today, a mixture of masculinity and femininity. Also, Yu has added a twist and touch of sportswear luxe! Boys in lace can look very camp, but emerging men's talent Astrid Andersen might be the only designer can keep it still masculine – if those garments look camp, it must be because of Yu Masui.
The sporty top with mink fur for spring/summer was quite shocking at first sight during men's, as Yu couldn't imagine wearing fur during the sweaty hot mid-summer. But fur is very popular on catwalk this season after all, and mens fur is very strong trend for AW13! Finally, the newly launched jeweled clutch from Mawi gives this look more of luxury feeling and statement.
