Starting a story...cat glasses and a fringed straw hat

I fully subscribe to what Scott Schuman says about the subject of inspiring people. The beauty of streetstyle photography is that it allows you to create a story about the subject of your pictures simply because you don't know who they are. But you find them intriguing. This has happened to me so many times, sometimes I have asked if I could take a picture and when this is not possible I just try and draw a sketch.
Well, on Sunday afternoon I found the very inspiring Japanese lady of my illustration. She was in front of me at the Muji till; perfect black bob, Issey Miyake Pleatsplease from head-to-toe (including a Baobao handbag, that's what you call being loyal to the brand!!), sculptural fringed hat, and.....these amazing kat-like frames! I had never seen them before (how did they elude me, despite the hours I spend on the internet looking for interesting eyewear??) and I wasn't going to let her go away without telling me where they where from! They are called Micro-Titan and they are made in Japan...I don't know much more and the only really interesting styles in the collection are actually just these...aren't they cute!
