Ear muff : Japanese fashion trend item 2008 A/W


Ear muff seem to be fashion trend in autumn and winter 2008.

As global warming, the Japanese fall and winter becomes warm, too. But Japanese fashion trend is not concerned in climate. Fur material is popular.

The World of Golden Eggs (in Japan)

The World of Golden Eggs

The World of Golden Eggs is a animated comedy show done in Japan for MTV which has a very cool chunky computer graphics look to it.

The show is set in a fictional American town called ‘Turkey Hill’, and the show seems to feature quite a few ‘shows with a show’. The series first aired in 2005 and it’s now in it’s second season. It’s very funny CG animation.

The World of Golden Eggs collaborated with Lawson(convenience store franchise) to release apple pie, banana shakes, noodles, etc…. They are very fun!!
