The forthcoming release of Madame Figaro Japan with Nana Komatsu and Ayami Nakajo on the cover (December issue) is a good opportunity to be reminded of a previous collaboration for Vogue Japan in 2016: photoshoot and clip by German photographer and director Ellen von Unwerth.
Late 2000s, early 2010s, a new street fashion style emerged in places like Harajuku in Tokyo, the Mori Girl: The idea of the mori girl is to look like she’s just come from living in the woods. A mori girl starts her wardrobe with the colors of the earth like white, cream, brown, and gray. Other added colors tend to be dusty and gentle. Light layers and loose silhouettes are a must, and then come the accessories. Long necklaces, low heeled shoes, natural makeup and hair, and plenty of lace complete the look (Lindsay Erin)
In August 2017, Nana Komatsu was the ‘Girl of the month‘ for Vogue Japan. On this occasion, she was filmed and shot by famous photographer Akinori Ito who by the way has been working with the actress and model many times (for Shiseido/Integrate CMs for instance). Nana Komatsu was wearing Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Chloé, Gianvito Rossi, Loewe, Stella McCartney …
Second series of promo pics for Kyoto Kimono Yuzen. Between 2015 and early 2017, Nana Komatsu appeared in the catalogs of Kyoto Kimono Yuzen, a prestigious Japanese company with headquarters in Tokyo, operating in more than 50 stores all over the country. The brand sells jewelry and other products, but its core activity is to design, sell and rent luxury kimono. (Kyoto Kimono Yuzen 1).
At the end of October 2018, Madame Figaro Japan published pictures of Chanel Ambassador Nana Komatsu on a special page: ‘Chanel en 24 mots clés‘. A few weeks earlier the young Japanese star was in Paris for a great photo session with French photographer Leo Berne. HQ versions of those pictures can be found on this page: Leo Berne Photography-Nana.
