END. presents the best-in-class street style from the Tokyo Fashion Week AW19 presentations
An international symbol of post-modern consumerism, Tokyo is a visual tapestry of competing references and cultures. Famed for a symphonic skyline which switches from temples of ancient pasts to skyscrapers of distant futures with unquestionable elegance and propriety. The Far-East's answer to NYC, Tokyo is a bar-setting metropolis which blends old and new with gallerylike precision, where each element is captivating in isolation, but utterly mesmerising when absorbed as one.
This intrinsic blend of references and style codes has trickled down into the very fabric of Tokyo culture and informs, quite literally, the fabrics its inhabitants produce, source and consume. Defined by a distinctly post-modern sensibility; a digitally developed hyper-city with a legacy that spans the millennia, Tokyo is a global hotspot for culture of almost any form.
Globe-trotting street style photographer Robert Spangle has captured the best the Japanese city has to offer at the AW19 presentations.
