Antipast accessories for earthman

Of my many odd passions, possibly one of the silliest is my fondness for socks. Not just any old socks mind you, but those by Japanese mother and daughter designers Antipast.

A small selection of my collection...

Some new A/W08 pairs, which I buy from Fenwick (crikey, they're now £18 a pair!!)...


It's not easy to find this brand in London, and I often surf for images of their clothing and accessories on the internet. I have a folder in favourites dedicated to sites which carry their goods, mostly Japanese. Just came accross these beauties last night at Space Moo... mmm, shame I'm not a petite Japanese size!

thanks yasu! i'm looking forward to my two trips later this year (New York and Hong Kong/Japan) because I will be able to find more Antipast there than here in London!! You're right though... not so cheap...

so lovely to find your blog! and also to find a fellow antipast obsessed person! I love all of their things so much but I rarely find anyone online talking about them in english! when I was in japan two summers back i loaded up on them & recently splurged on a dress of theirs I saw in new york....and some gloves. I also just posted one the dresses you listed from space moo on my blog too a few weeks ago. =)

Hi Julia! I am always on the hunt for Antipast... accessories only though as I'm not likely to fit in to petite Japanese sizes, sadly! In a way it's good that I can't ever find clothes as I'd be very sad at not being able to wear them. I'll be in NY next week and will be hunting down gloves & scarves at Barney's CoOp!!

Just fyi, Ped Shoes always has a fab selection of Antipast. I am completely smitten with the arm warmers they have in stock this year (now to decide which ones...).
