tokidoki Everything


It's been at least a day since I coveted something from the tokidoki line. I have a necklace, the logo key chain, the camo watch, the "Cactus Friend" (BASTARDINO), and a stunning "Diavolina" belt buckle. And I'm hoping to get a tokidoki iSkin for Christmas. If I'm really good, maybe Santa would bring me one of these smashing purses.

Now I have it on good authority (that would be from the talented designer, Simone Legno himself) that there's a line of tokidoki clothing which will start shipping January 30th. And Simone has designed -- so that I can dress from head to toe in tokidoki -- a line of shoes for Fornarina which will be available at "select footwear retailers in Europe and the United States." (You read it here first.) Not only will there be fun heels (with the tradmark metal logo on the buckle) but also snazzy running shoes with the distinctive Japanese-style designs. No word on how much they will run, but put me down for the first pair.


Simone, who is Italian by birth, has an unmistakable Japanese influence running through his designs. When I asked about this, he gushed about his adopted country: "I think it's hard to explain my love for this country. It's something called 'Japanisme' -- a term coined to describe the craze for things Japanese. It's something I feel inside, I am totally astonished for everything that comes from Japan, the beauty of their tradition to the super pop flashy aspects of the super modern cities. I love Japanese people: I love their kindness, politeness, seriousness, and even yet they can be quite funny, playful and extremely creative."

Talking with the designer is like having a conversation with an irrepressible, artistic child. When asked about what he hasn't done yet, he didn't hesitate: "Decorate an airplane! That would be fantastic!"

Shop online at tokidoki, and for the purses, go directly to LeSportSac.
