Bakit Sobrang Payat ng mga Haponesa?

Noong bumisita ako sa Tokyo last week, gulat na gulat ako nang makita ko na Sobrang payat talaga ang mga Haponesa. Para bang kulang sila sa wastong sustansya or pagkain. Naalala ko tuloy na parang Ethiopia ang dating na halos lahat ay malnourished. Ano kaya ang dahilan? Conscious ba sila sa beauty nila or trend lang yun ng mga haponesa…

Sinusubukan nilang pumayat ng maayos bago dumating ang summer para di ma-embarrass nung i-expose nila yung katawan nila(maging mas revealing yung pananamit nila, diba? halimbawa, pag naka-bikini, etc.). Yung lang po:)

Seksi sa kanila yung payat at karamihan sa kanila nag-eexercise.Sa katunayan lahat nang kakilala kong haponesa matatakaw yung iba naman sa kanila pagkatapos kumain nagtatake nang diet medicine.Kaya kahit anong kain payat pa rin sila.

Japan still accounts for more than half of Louis Vuitton’s global sales.
In Paris, you see Japanese tourist waiting in long lines to go to the store as if it’s being given away for free! If only I had taken a picture - I’d post it.

In the mid-90s, high school girls became obsessed with owning the 100,000 yen purses, and as a result, shady, unorganized prostitution flourished among the lower-class kogyaru who couldn’t just ask Mom and Dad for the funds. But such sordid stories could not tarnish the image of the brand, which grew bigger and bigger in the following years. Louis Vuitton somehow defies Simmel’s traditional theory of fashion - Japan’s upper classes are supposed to abandon these cultural objects once the dirty proles get their paws on them! But no, Louis Vuitton’s Christ-like powers emanate from Old Europe and nothing that happens in Japan could dent that sacred halo.

In the past, Japanese fashion was about living up to a middle-class standard, but now that most have started to be cognizant of real class differences, everyone is scrambling to prove that they’re on the right side of the fence. The message used to be - don’t be left behind! - but now it’s - are you in or are you out? And there’s nothing more “in” than Louis Vuitton. There seems to be no coincidence that LV sales are rising in parallel to consciousness about class divisions.

http://www.neomarxisme.com/images/lvskin.jpgThere’s a segment of Japanese middle-class women in their 20s who read JJ and ViVi. They dye their hair a rich brown and bronze their skin a shiny gold. I can’t help but think, is owning the bag not enough? Do you really need to look like the Louis Vuitton logo?

Aha! I found an article to support my previous post.:chatter:

Japan has a Yen for designer labels

A trio of young Japanese shoppers, wearied but determined, are ninth, tenth and eleventh in line for the Louis Vuitton boutique inside the Galleries Lafayette department store in Paris. “We’ve been here an hour,” says a young man from Tokyo. “No, almost two,” chimes in his friend. It’s only 11:30 in the morning, but the group is frustrated that the security guard hasn’t let a customer past the velvet rope for at least 10 minutes.

Visitors from Japan are responsible for almost half of Louis Vuitton’s total global sales. When the Galeries Lafayette boutique opened two years ago the resulting crush of mainly Japanese fans caused the company to install the guard and velvet rope. In Paris, after all, Japanese shoppers get a great deal: a good exchange rate for their yen and prices as much as 30% lower than back home. So important are they as customers to the luxury group that all sales associates who have worked for Louis Vuitton for more than two weeks—from around the world—are sent to Paris to attend a seminar called “Understanding the Japanese Culture.” The talks, trips to museums and forays to Japanese restaurants are meant to instill an appreciation for the company’s eager Japanese clientele.

Across town from the Galleries, the larger Louis Vuitton shop on the Champs ElysEes is also bustling with Japanese tourists. Most are armed with calculators and magazine clippings with images of products circled. They bypass wide-belted, snap-front raincoats and checkered ballet flats and head straight for the accessories to buy anything with a logo.

“Women in Japan buy brands that are renowned for their quality,” says Naoki Takizawa, designer for Issey Miyake, “and I believe that when women wear these clothes they are comfortable.” He pauses and sighs: “I would like to believe that is why they are buying so much of this stuff. But some of them feel much more security when they wear the same thing as everyone else.”

How about an LV crepe? :eek:

Hey stanford, funny posts. I’m more of a uni-qlo or muji fan. And I really find LV products tacky especially those rainbow-bright ones.:wink:
