Introducing… New Spring Suits, from kay me

Here at the kay me atelier in Tokyo, we’ve been working hard creating our amazing new range of suits to meet the needs of busy women around the world.
kay me was created by Junko Kemi, herself a successful consultant in Tokyo, as a way of making her own line of office-appropriate clothing that worked for her in terms of style and practicality.

This spring we’re very excited to announce our new suits, including jackets, dresses, skirts and trousers, with coordinating tops.
Read on for a closer look at our super suits…

blogjackets

Our classic tailored jackets are now available in seven colours, including beige, white, pink, black, light grey, grey and navy. Our tailored jackets feature side pockets, a self fabric covered button and classic notched collar. Our bolero jackets in white and navy have turn-up cuffs and a standing collar that draws the eye upwards.
In grey and navy and new for 2018, these jackets are also available in special longer and crop lengths, each with a shawl collar that can be styled as you like. Pair our longer length jacket with trousers, and the shorter length with dresses.

Designed to match our jackets, new mermaid-style skirts and hourglass dresses are also now in store and online. With a gentle flare and sharp seams, our skirts are the last word in feminine elegance. For those looking for another way to expand their working wardrobe, our 3D stretch dresses in white, pink, light grey and navy create an effortless hourglass figure with perfectly placed tucks and panels, plus handy pockets for everyday small essentials.

Get ready to bend and stretch with our chic trousers in our special soft and stretchy fabric, available in grey and navy. A centre pleat and medium width makes legs look longer, and four pockets and belt loops keep things practical. Fully machine washable like all our suits, these pants are also crease-resistant.

The perfect partner for our new suits, our twist tops have been redesigned with three-quarter sleeves and the same eye-catching asymmetric front twist, now in French macaron-inspired vanilla, grape and strawberry pastel shades.

Getting Organised for the New Year

As we welcome 2018, it’s a great time to embrace (or brush up!) our organisational skills. Whether this means cleaning out your closet, sorting the files on your desktop or investing in a new pen and paper planner, taking a small amount of time makes a big difference later on.

We asked our Japanese customers which methods they prefer for keeping track of their schedules, and the results proved very decisive! Here’s the final breakdown:

Paper planner – 62.9%

Other scheduling apps – 11.4%

Smartphone/tablet in-built scheduling app – 10%

Google calendar – 7.1%

Paper calendar – 5.7%

Company’s own scheduling system – 2.9%

It seems that our Japanese customers by far prefer traditional pen and paper when it comes to scheduling and planning. It’s no wonder, as Japan has some of the most beautiful stationery made from ancient techniques, as well as practical solutions including the world-famous Hobonichi Techo planners.

kay me’s Junko Kemi loves her leather-covered schedule book, with a week on one page and free list-writing space on the other. It’s familiar sight at the kay me office!

For those on the hunt for Japanese stationery and goods, we recommend the century-old Itoya store as well as Tokyu Hands, both just a short walk from our flagship store in central Ginza.

Happy planning!

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!
