If you are big follower of Fashion Blogs and Social Media trends, you’ve probably heard of Hare before. my first time discovering it was when i made my routine round browsing through the floors of 109 men’s building in Shibuya. This brand focussed on Japanese contemporary streetwear with an affordable avant-garde flair. You’d be surprised what you find on their sale-rack, 100% wool, made-in-japan oversized pullover may cost less than 100 usd !

Every once in a while you go into a theme-park souvenier shop thinking what is it from this store that i can buy that i know am going to use and not just end up at the trash-pile at home.
