秘密の花園The secret garden
January 25, 2023
春のおとづれと共に梅から始まってミモザや桜など花があちこちで順番に咲き始め、見つけるたびにうれしくなるし、夏が始まると海や森が恋しくなります。 そういうお年頃かな？いや、私は子供の頃からそうだったなと、振り返ります。 小 …
In spring and summer, I tend to draw clothes that I wear when I come in contact with nature.
With the arrival of spring, plum blossoms begin to bloom, followed by mimosas and cherry blossoms.
Are you around that age? No, since I was a child, I look back.
Observing and raising various insects that come to a small garden, and planting a cute dayflower that I pulled outside and failed. I was really looking forward to being taken to the sea and mountains in the summer.
In such a summer vacation, the most difficult homework was reading impressions. LOL But the story I was fascinated by was “The Secret Garden”.
It is a fairy tale read by many girls around the world.
I will omit the synopsis, but it is filled with my longing, and I thought that someday I would like to have my own flower garden.
This collection features a grown-up Mary wearing the clothes I drew, gardening, having tea with her friends at her favorite garden table, and polishing tiles made of seashells. I fantasized.
I didn’t have a flower garden, but I’m happy that I was able to create a wonderful collection for Mary when she grew up. smile
It looks like the cold days will continue, but I can already feel the scent of plum. Another new spring is coming, isn’t it?
あっという間に師走December in no time
December 29, 2022
あぁ、もはや一年を500日くらいにして12月は100日くらい欲しいです。 そうなっても最後の方にバタバタしそうですが… いつも年明けにやっていたカタログの撮影が仕事のスケジュール上、年内に済ませなくてはならず、もはや自宅 …
Ah, I want a year to be about 500 days and December to be about 100 days.
Even if that happens, it seems like it’s going to be a mess towards the end…
Due to my work schedule, I have to finish the catalog shoot that I always do at the beginning of the year by the end of the year, and I can’t even clean my house anymore. smile
However, the shooting was fun, and this time the model was Alex, who is a very popular Tiktoker, and we had a lot of fun conversations from beginning to end. I’m looking forward to the successful completion of the work and the launch of the AW23 samples at the beginning of the year.
This year, I was able to hold an exhibition in Copenhagen for the first time, and also in Paris after a long time, and my excitement has returned little by little. I hope that many customers will come to the exhibition in Tokyo next year.
It’s the season when it’s easy to get sick, so please take care of your body.Recently, I’ve rekindled my passion for aromatherapy, which I used to be addicted to, and it’s also helping me manage my physical condition!
Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year! !
Next year is the year of the rabbit, and I want to make it a year where I can leap like a rabbit.
It seems that it will end in a blink of an eye.
コーデュロイの服The Corduroy clothes

今年もコーデュロイの季節がやってきました。年末だなぁと感じます。 ちょっと前までおしゃれ女性には疎まれがちな素材だったけど、すっかりポップな素材になって色も太さも様々、いろんなお店で見かけます。 サラウェアでは暖かみのあ …
- Corduroy season has arrived again this year. I feel like it’s the end of the year.
Until a while ago, it was a material that fashionable women tended to avoid, but it has become a completely pop material, and you can see it in various shops in various colors and thicknesses.
Sarawear has two types of thick ridges that are warm and a thin and easy-to-wear shirt call. The more you wear it, the more you get along and the more you wear it, the more you wear it, the more you wear it.
In this season’s catalog, I proposed an ivory one-tone outfit.
Thick ribbed corduroy, which tends to create an unfashionable image, looks natural and beautiful. The perfect romantic coordination for the Christmas season is ready!
Besides ivory, chic dark gray and black are also recommended. I want to wear it with a slightly baggy pants or jacket to create an ennui atmosphere.
Well, this year is about to end. Can you introduce something again this year? I think.

私、ちょっとクセのあるものに惹かれるたちです。 食べ物だったら、行ったことない国の変わった食材とか味付けだったり、俳優さんだったら、正統派な主役俳優よりもいつも違う顔を見せてくれるバイプレイヤーだったり。 いつもうんうん …
I am attracted to things that are a little quirky.
If it’s food, it’s a strange ingredient or seasoning from a country I’ve never been to.
The friends who always say “I understand, I understand,” and snuggle up to me feel relaxed, but suddenly I want to meet the friends who grin when I make jokes that sound mean or surprise me.
Same with clothes. These days, I tend to choose clothes that I find interesting rather than ones that look good on me.
These days, I want to wear clothes that make me happy rather than worrying about what I look like.
This tricolor crazy is perfect for that mood.
It’s a little crazy, but the fabric is elegant, so it doesn’t look childish, and it’s easy to match plain and traditional items.
I want to meet my friends in a tunic, denim boot cut, and my favorite vintage bag.
Hey, how are we going to play?

サラウェアの渋谷のお店が出来てから25年になります。 25年前の私は他の仕事をしていました。 サラウェアを知ったとき、10年もこんな可愛いお店を知らなかったなんて随分損したなと思ったものです。 だからこの先もそんな私のよ …
It’s been 25 years since the Sarahware Shibuya store was opened.
Twenty-five years ago I was doing other work.
When I learned about Sarahware, I thought it was a big loss to not know such a cute shop for 10 years.
Therefore, I hope that the number of people like me will increase in the future. I didn’t know it for 25 years, I lost it. Or lol
Or maybe because I liked my mom, I want young people who want clothes that they want to wear for a long time to like them.
I hope that those who have loved Sarahwear for a long time will continue to do so, so all the staff will continue to cherish the playfulness of Sarahwear and make clothes. ..
Since opening a directly managed store in Shibuya in 1997, not only customers who visit us directly, but also customers, customers who purchase Sarahware from customers, factories, fabric stores, small scale Although it is a family, I was able to celebrate 25 years with the support of an unimaginable number of people and being watched over. Thank you. .. We launched Sarah with the feeling that we will only make things that we think are better from our own perspective than those that sell in our 20s. The designer is Hitomi Saraya known as Sarahchan. (It became Sarahwear in the sense of Sarah’s clothes.) When the brand got off to a good start, it turned to a business base and disappointed its customers. Even so, I continued to make things that I thought were cute because I had a strong desire not to cloud the facial expressions of the buyers of the dealers who sympathize with their appearance and the people who come in contact with Sarahware’s clothes at the store. I think it’s because of it. In addition, I think that I will grow old and become a wonderful adult, so I made clothes and lived, what kind of clothes make that person look nice? The answer is mid-search. Does it look like a nice person because it’s worn by a nice person, or does it look like a nice person because it’s wearing nice clothes? Probably neither … I think it’s the latter. There are no stores other than the current Jiyugaoka store, but the experiences we have at each store and the words of encouragement we received from our customers are helping us now. I’ve grown up enough, but I’ll do my best to deliver clothes that look nice while glaring at myself. Thank you.

Black and white dots and gingham checks stand out on the city display this spring.
Gingham and polka dots are simple and simple, so their cuteness is infinite.
The size and color of the item will change depending on the season.
Saraware sells various materials, colors and sizes every season.
I love both of them.
Introducing this time is a simple and neat gingham and an eye-catching polka dot. The texture and design are different, but both are retro and chic.
Model Alex liked vintage clothes and miscellaneous goods, and he liked the shoots of these clothes quite a lot, and the tension was high and the poses were a perfect match.
It gives a crush to people of all ages and countries.
I like cute clothes.

【Burned in madder color】Released in 2021
[Burned in red] Released in 2021
I choose movies as a movie director, and the only person who is conscious of the producer is Jerry Bruckheimer of “Top Gun” (laughs). Even so, recently, Mitsunobu Kawamura, a person who was conscious of the producer for the first time, who was listed as a producer in common with the movies he watched and the movies he watched, passed away.
I think that he was the one who entrusted the completion of the movie by selecting a director who can plan and shape it properly, but the movies introduced are also “The Notebook to Read”, “Wrestler”, “I can’t breathe” etc. It was really good.
For the past 10 years, I have been devoted to Japanese movies, and recently I think that many people have been moved by watching “The Journalist” starring Tori Matsuzaka.
Today I would like to introduce “Akane-colored Burn” released last year.
Mother-in-law Yoshiko (Machiko Ono), a mother and child who lost her husband in an unreasonable traffic accident seven years ago, does not receive compensation from the perpetrator and takes care of her father-in-law while working at the flower department of the supermarket and night customs I managed to live with my junior high school son Junpei (Wadaan).
Her mother behaved patiently without showing her anger and sadness in her chest to her son, who cares for her mother despite being humiliated by her son. I am living.
Machiko Ono performed well with Ryoko screaming what the socially vulnerable were.
What she did not let go of her parents and children who struggled desperately to get out of the vulnerable.
The theme of the movie is hotter than the title, it’s clean and intense, but it makes me feel kind after watching it.
Masatoshi Nagase and Yuki Katayama set aside.
This time I may get angry, but I will attach a trailer.https://youtu.be/OBDnn1qgyzU

【Metal Lords】2022Netflix Work
High school hunters (AdrianGreensmith) and Kevin (Jaeden Lieberher) who like heavy metal seek a bassist to form a band and enter the contest, but they have few friends and no one around them wants to play metal music. Every day I couldn’t find a student and practiced by playing the guitar and drums alone. Kevin on drums invites her companion to learn that the weirdo Emily (Isis Hainworth), who is taking tranquilizers to control her anger due to stress, can play the cello. She decided to add a cello instead of a bass and aim to win as a three-piece band. The addition of Emily cracks the friendship between Hunter and Kevin, and the band goes in the wrong direction. The director Peter Sollet of “Hands of Love” is fiercely harmonizing with the two men who are humorously trying to become a metal road and Emily, a cut character, until the promised last concert. It will charm you nicely. Heavy metal youth told like a parable in modern America. A little public about having lived without being interested in heavy metal.

[At that time. ] Published in 2021 Speaking of otaku, I think of Hachiro Taku, but when I search for it, it’s a name that refers to enthusiasts, but I think that it will change slightly depending on whether you are an otaku or an enthusiast. The stage is the story of adults who are crazy about Hello! Project idols in Osaka in 2004. I wasn’t so interested in Morning Musume and Aya Matsuura that I didn’t even know the word Hello! Project, but I enjoyed watching it. Makoto (Matsuzaka Tori), who has failed to take the university entrance exam and has no girlfriend, is a dull young man who lives without a hitch while eating instant food every day. One day, when I saw Aya Matsuura’s music video that I got from a friend, I became absorbed in the idol of Hello! We will form a “love club” with them and work hard to raise awareness of idols at talk events and other events. Still, time goes by, and when you leave one person, you gradually become separated from another person. Even so, when Cosmin got sick, my friends reunited and my nostalgic days came back. Takashi Yamanaka who plays otaku, Tateto Serizawa, Oga Nakano and others weave otaku patterns, and the enthusiasm of acting that even I, who is not interested in Hello! An idiot movie that can be said to be a ridiculous and honorable mention. When I finished watching it, it was salty at that time.

[The Last Picture Show] Released in 1971 The other day, director Peter Bogdanovich passed away. “Paper Moon” was good, but I can’t forget this “Last Show”. It’s unclear which one I saw first, but it’s a masterpiece as an oldies fashion movie along with 60’s “American Graffiti”, but for some reason it’s a closed Texas inland area rather than the glamorous youth of Califulnia. I was attracted to the style of young people and watched it. Even though it was black and white, the checkered shirt, Hawaiian shirt, G Jean, and high rise pants of Civil Shaper had a navel look, which left a brilliant impression on me as a high school student. .. (Not real time) I became interested in the 50’s style and tried on the shirts and trousers I wore when my father was young, and when I saw the clothes of my older sisters JUN and VAN, I became resentful. is. The story is about high school students such as Sony (Timothy Potoms) who are young in the remote countryside of Texas where entertainment facilities are only movie theaters and pool halls, and Sam (Lion Sam), the owner of the facility, which is trusted by all the townspeople. Ben Johnson) is the center of the story of the town becoming lonely. This movie gives a glimpse of the disparity society before the Korean War and before the Vietnam War in Amegra, but I wonder if there is a similar town in the modern United States where the disparity is serious and the crisis in Ukraine and Taiwan is approaching. I will.
As an aside, Tom Ford is from Texas, isn’t he?

Asakusa Kid] Now available on Netflix from 202112/9
Isn’t there one person who can be said to be a master?
This movie vividly depicts the young days spent by the comedy mogul Beat Takeshi with Senzaburo Fukami, the only entertainer on the stage in Asakusa.
The French theater in Asakusa, which sells elegant strips centered on dance and laughter conte between the intermissions.
The center of laughter in the 70’s is Takeshi (Yuya Yagira), an elevator boy who longs for Fukami (Yo Oizumi) who plays a sharp conte in the theater alone while moving to TV such as Conte55 and Drifters.
With the rise of television, the number of customers in the management of the French theater is declining and leaning as if it is inversely proportional to Takeshi, who has successfully become a disciple and mastered tap dancing.
I picked up this movie because I want to watch such a movie that makes me laugh and cry on New Year’s Day, but I can’t watch this movie at the cinema. I think we have entered a new era where we can’t watch movies even though they are movies, but it seems that Japanese movie companies have been reluctant to do so because the planning, script, and director are the only theater companies.
The reason why Japanese movies are not good is that we cannot sponsor such a masterpiece.
I have no connection with Netflix, but it costs 990 yen a month, and it’s good enough to watch this movie and cancel it.
We hope you all have a good year.

[Last night in Soho] Released in 2021 The last time was a dora picture, so this time I will introduce a pretty cool movie. Eloise (Thomas Mackenzie), who lives with her grandmother in her countryside, enrolls in a design school in Soho, London to become a fashion designer. Seen as a redneck and curious, Ayrose is unfamiliar with dormitory life, and an old woman begins living alone in the attic of an old landlord’s apartment. Inspired, Ayrose travels back in time to Soho in the late 1960s in her dream on her first day to meet Sandy (Anya Tiller-Joy), who dreams of being a singer. Eloise, who longs for London in the 1960s, sympathizes with Sundi chasing his dreams, and while he goes out to Soho in the 1960s many times in his dreams, he becomes physically and mentally synchronized with Sandy. , Reality and dreams will be mixed ,. The footage directed by Edgar Wright, a genius who pays homage to 60’s UK movies and music, is retro and stylish, and dramatically develops with UK 60’s sounds such as Cilla Black and The Who, making it an unbearable movie for retro lovers. It has become. If you want to see it but you are scared and haven’t seen it, please think that you have been deceived and watch it. I promise that you can leave the movie theater comfortably.

March! How are you coping with the unpredictable whimsical weather?
Day by day, the soft sunlight makes me feel comfortable and bright.
Today’s song that suits such a season is Brazilian bossa nova composer Carlos Lira’s representative work “Maria Ningen”.
The title comes from the fact that Maria is the name of many women in Brazil (what about now?), and it seems to mean “Maria, no one else”, my Maria who has the same name but is different from everyone else.
I think there are other songs famous for male vocals such as Joan Gilberto, but this is Brigitte Bardot’s version (1964). The soft melody has a rolling tongue♪

Spring is approaching and I was just trying to pick some fun songs from the Bacharach album.
He is a great musician who has provided songs to many artists and has been active for a long time.
Even before I knew his name, there were some songs that I had heard and sang with my nose without knowing that they were Bacharach’s works.
I’ve covered it several times in my music column, but the sorrowful song in particular healed my heart. I know only the songs of the movies I haven’t seen.
“Make It Easy On Yourself (1962)”
It’s a song sung by various people, but this is the version sung by Mr. Bacharach himself in the album released in 1969. lovely voice
The Japanese title is “Farewell with Tears”

I was saddened by the sudden news just after the new year. In memory of Yukihiro Takahashi. From 1978’s very stylish album “Saravah!”
“Volare” is famous for the passionate version of Gipsy Kings, which is familiar from the TV commercial in 1998, but it was sung in Yukihiro’s first solo album 20 years before that.
With a relaxing bossa nova-like melody and cool singing voice, you will be enchanted by the world in seconds.
The original song was sung by Italian singer Domenico Modunno at the Sanremo Music Festival in 1958, won the grand prize, and later became one of the most popular Italian songs in the world. By the way, “Volare” = “to fly”.
Even if you don’t understand the language, you can feel a sense of happiness and have a great time♪

Now accept reality.
This time, the familiar Christmas song “Little Drummer Boy”
A heartwarming music video perfect for Christmas, featuring the beautiful voice of Bing Crosby, the king of Christmas songs, and haunting animation.
I didn’t know what the lyrics were about, and I just sang the part of “Rapapanpan♪” with a happy feeling, but…
A boy born in poverty was called by the three wise men and went to Bethlehem, where he played the drums in front of the newborn Jesus with Mary’s permission, saying, “I can’t prepare gifts because I don’t have money.”
It seems that it is a story. “Rapapanpan” is the sound of drums. When I found out what it was about, I felt even warmer. gin.

It’s still early to look back on the year, but there was an emotional event for me this year.
It is still too early to look back on the year, but there was an emotional event for me this year.
It was a reunion with classmates.
I am sure that many of you are still in touch with your old classmates, but I was different.
Back then, I had a lot of fun at school and spent time with my classmates after school and on holidays.
However, after graduation, I met new people and made new friends everywhere I went, and I became estranged from my former classmates.
This year, however, thanks to SNS, I was able to connect with two of my high school classmates for the first time in about 30 years, and we met again.
I was thrilled to go to the meeting place…we recognized each other immediately. And I cried. I’m so happy that you welcomed me so sweetly, even though I’m so thin on friendships!
Then my friend said, “What? Crying?” And my friend laughed.
I thought, “Hey, cry with me here! Time passed in a flash as we talked about episodes that had been missing from my memory, and both of us have become wonderful adults. I have experienced many things in my own way and have lived up to this point in my life. I am grateful for the precious existence that still keeps me close.
I know it’s a long story, but the song this time is the 1985 hit “That’s What Friends Are For,” produced by Burt Bacharach and Carol Beyer Sager and performed by four of the biggest names in music, Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, and Elton John. That’s What Friends Are For”. As I listen to the song, I sincerely feel grateful to have friends.
In fact, the original vocal was Rod Stewart’s version on the soundtrack of the 1982 movie “Night Shift. I didn’t know that!

The theme of the Saraware Fall/Winter 2022 collection is “Hello London”
Think of the sleek and cool Swinging Sixties.
Everyone knows The Beatles when it comes to music that represents the 1960s. I’m sure everyone has a Beatles song that comes to mind, and I think it’s difficult to choose a favorite song.
There are so many songs, I can’t remember the names of the songs, and it’s hard to find which album the song I want to listen to is on. As I keep searching, other songs become better, and new songs I like increase.
“It Won’t Be Long”
It is a song recorded in the second album released in 1963, but I think it is a very Beatles-like song among many songs.
Teenagers, 20s, 30s… No matter what age I listen to, there are songs that fit me at that time, and I’ve been enjoying them for a long time♪
