Throughout the month of October, we became used to seeing matching couples costumes plastered all over the internet – from Fred and Wilma Flintstone ensembles to Little Red Riding Hood and her long-suffering wolf-dog. And with Christmas just around the corner, I’m sure we’re all looking forward to the matchy-matchy family portrait Christmas cards popping through our mail boxes.
The amount of time and effort that goes into this process has always astounded me. Honestly? I’m usually just not into fancy dress or family portraits – especially not the matching kind. Until I came across Tsuyoshi and Tomi Seki. The couple shot to viral fame in Japan after posting a series of Instagram photos showcasing their daily co-ordinated outfits. And whilst the rest of us have trouble co-coordinating our own outfits on a day-to-day basis, this couple have got it down to a fine art and I am loving it.
I know Halloween has passed but how cute are these costumes?
Checks. So classic.
Stripes, khakis and backpacks.
Simple but beautiful.
Of course, we’re happy to be described as style icons in the media, but that’s not really how we see ourselves. We wear simple, inexpensive clothes that anyone can buy.
Do these life-jackets remind anyone of a particular Beatles song?
We're all going on a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine.No? Just me then.
