Get That Look For Less: Model Kiko Mizuhara

We love Japanese model Kiko Mizuhara! Mizuhara was seen wearing a look from Chanel’s spring/summer 2014 collection during Paris Fashion Week F/W 2014. Not everyone can afford a Chanel outfit, (Mizuhara’s top and shorts equal a whopping $4,850!), but we can at least derive some inspiration from Mizuhara’s look. Check out our picks to achieve this look for less!

Asians in Fashion: Kiko Mizuhara for AMBUSH’s Lookbook

Korean-American model, actress and singer Kiko Mizuhara modeled heavy jewelry in fashion design label AMBUSH’s lookbook, “Nu Order,” which they released on their website earlier this week.

The Tokyo-based design collective, Ambush Design, was founded back in 2002 by Korean rapper-MC Verbal and his graphic artist wife, Yoon. They started their second line, AMBUSH, in 2008, in an experiment in making jewelry with different kinds of metals, stones and plastics. Fans include Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Kid Cudi, among others.

The digital lookbook features Kiko and another model in clunky metal pieces, including chains, cuffs and bangles.

Asians in Fashion | Kiko Mizuhara for 3.1 Phillip Lim, Fall/Winter 2013

The Japanese-based model-actress (and rumored former GF of Bigbang’s G-Dragon) stars in this fall’s campaign for the popular brand 3.1 Phillip Lim.  Photographed in Tokyo by But Sou Lai, Kiko is joined by British model Louis Simonon.  As noted by Elle, the ads “called “Sonomama,” were inspired by a Japanese phrase meaning “the way you are.”  Much to our delight, the campaign is accompanied by a film, where you see the pair and their friends living the life in Tokyo (complete with a breakdancing session).
