My First Tapioca Tea And Trench Dress


The other day, I tried tapioca milk tea for the very first time. I would like to explain why I had never drunk it. About 30 years ago, I tasted tapioca milk(not tea!) at a Chinese restaurant, and I didn't like it very much. After that, When I drank a coconuts milk for the first time, I misunderstood and thought that taste of coconuts is similar to tapioca. I misunderstood that tapioca is a seed in a cocoa-nut. Therefor, I had avoided coconuts and tapioca for long time. This time, my son drank a tapioca tea and the drink looked so delicious. I nervously drank it, then I was so moved! It was not the taste of coconuts but milk tea with balls from farina like Mochi!! Anyway, this tapioca tea's color goes well with my outfit, right? I am going to write about my thinking about an outfit with a trench dress from Gvenchy.

先日、はじめてタピオカドリンクを飲みました。どうして今まで避けてきたのかといいますと、タピオはココナッツ味だと思っていたから。初めてタピオカを知ったのは、今から30年以上も昔のことで、中華料理店のデザートのタピオカミルク。私はその味が苦手で、以後、デザートは杏仁豆腐一筋。タピオカミルクの味を知ってから、ココナッツミルクの味を知ったので、ココナッツミルクとタピオカは同じものだと思ってしまったのです。タピオカの粒は、ヤシの実の中に入っているんだと思っていました。そういったわけで、タピオカドリンクも、苦手なココナッツ味だと思っていたため、ずっと敬遠していました。今回の撮影の時に、アンジさんが美味しそうに飲んでいたので、恐る恐る飲ませてもらいました。すると、信じられないほど美味しくてその場で気絶!ミルクティーにお餅が入っている飲み物だったのですね。さて、本日のお洋服は、GIVENCHYのトレンチドレスのコーディネイトの作り方です。それでは、お楽しみくださいませ。









This trench dress is from Givency 2017 Spring by Riccardo Tisci that I found at a secondhand shop. The design is very unique, so it was very difficult to think about mixing and matching for me. However I wanted to wear more than last year, so I thought about a new outfit like an important mission. First, I chose three fashion collection's images from one of my my Pinterest board, fall 2019. They are two pictures of Burberry collection by Riccardo Tisci and a picture of Celine collection by Hedi slimane. They fascinated me, but I put up with shopping new items. Next I abstractly saw three pictures. I concentrated the balance of colors and structures. Then, I thougt about a new outfit from my closet. When abstract thinking is difficult for me , I substitute thinking about a new outfit with painting illustrations which I good at. If you are good at cooking, you might want to think about a new outfit like cooking. Mr. Akamine was inspired by Mackerel and teaching how to style on Forza Style channel. It is Japanese channel, but I think you can understand!!

本日のリカルド・ティッシのGIVENCHY最後のコレクションのトレンチドレスは、セカンドハンドのお店で去年見つけました。個性的なお洋服ですので、出番が少ないままあっという間に一年たって、今年はたくさん着てあげたいです。まずはPinterestで作ったボードfall2019の中から、トレンチドレスと印象の近い画像を3枚選びました。同じデザイナーのリカルド・ティッシのBURBERRYから二枚、CELINEから一枚。うっとりと眺めていると全部欲しくなってしまいますので、なるべく抽象的にとらえます。トレンチドレスに何を加えたらイメージに近づけるかを考えました。難しい場合は、自分の得意なことに置き換えてみてください。私の場合は、イラストの色の配分を考える時の脳の使い方を応用しています。もし、お料理が得意でしたら、テーブルコーディネイトやワンプレートなどを考えるときのように頭を使ってみるといいかも。FORZA STYLEの赤峰先生の動画では、鯖からインスピレーションを得て教えてくださっています。今月いちばんおすすめの動画です。

    1. Trench dresses can look so elegant when styled right and you certainly styled yours very elegantly. I like how you combined it with a checkered shirt and brown boots. This outfit makes me think of British chic.

      P.S. I have never tried tapioka tea. I wonder what it is like.

  6. Hey Akiko, hope you're having a fantastic week so far! This is one of the coolest posts I've seen on your blog and I really enjoyed it :)

    First of all I like how you put everything together: the references from the runway, the drawing (it is simple but way TOO COOL *___*) and the styling of your long vest telling us your experience with bubble tea.

    There a lot of bubble tea places here in Barcelona, I like it, specially the one with matcha or coconut :)

    And you were so lucky to find this iconic piece by Givenchy, I still miss the ideas of Ricardo Tisci in this fashion house. I know it could be hard to style it since it has many different colors, but you managed to do a great job :D

    Best
