Limi Feu has quickly become my latest fashion craze.

Limi Yamamoto is the daughter of renowned Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto. She's actually not a new designer, but made it to the fashion spotlight only in 2007. Looking at her designs, you can tell her dad has had a major influence on her aesthetic, but she also has a rock n' roll edge which I find very refreshing. I like that her designs are androgynous for the most part, and hope that she'll tap into menswear in the near future. I can't wait to see what she will do.

Who knew Rambo could inspire fashion? I am truly amazed by her design capability to interpret fashion of the modern vigilante into something quite wearable. There's also something very masculine about the skirt; a man could almost wear this and look good.

The look is a bit messy, but it works. What I love most is the color palette of this outfit: black, white, and lavender; it's "futuristically feminine." I love how the color, scarf, and sheer top softens up everything.

If you could pull this suit off, you could wear anything. There's something so wrong about this suit that it's right; I think it's the balloon pants. It's reminiscent of the 1980s and the Japanese schoolgirl look. Oh, and who could forget about those red boots?

When I look at this dress, I think architectural, edgy, and new...three very important words in fashion right now. I normally would say "stay away from the black," but I really can't see this dress in another color; the shape would be too overbearing.

I find this striped shirt dress to be be incredibly sexy. Well, it's also the coat that gave it a nice touch, which would've been better if it was in green or something.

Yay, Mod fashion is making a comeback. I'm not sure why it went out of style because I always thought it was very simple yet interesting. This dress really speaks to me because of its gigantic zipper. It's the perfect modern LBD in my opinion.
