'Six Scents' with Jeremy Scott in Aoyama!

Last night was a night of parties in Tokyo - everyone we talked to had plans of dining, drinking, socializing and dancing the night away. For our part, we couldn't wait to attend the Tokyo launch of Designers Against Aids' new perfume line 'Six Scents.' This is a collaboration project in which 6 international designers - Gareth Pugh, Bernhard Willhelm, Preen, Jeremy Scott, Alexandre Herchcovitch and Cosmic Wonder Light Source - were enlisted to collaborate on original limited-edition fragrances, with proceeds going to help create DDA's first creative International HIV/AIDS Awareness Education Center, to be opened in Antwerp, Belgium next year. There are only 2,000 bottles of each scent being produced, and in Tokyo they're being sold at the ever-hip Aoyama boutique The Contemporary Fix, which is also where last night's party was held.

Our favorite avant-garde designer and man-about-town Jeremy Scott was onhand at the festivities, and was as usual upbeat and in excellent humor, despite a killer schedule of interviews and press appearances all over Tokyo for the past week. We managed to get a few minutes of Jeremy's time to catch up and shower him with praise for the adorable print that he designed for his next collaboration with Crystal Ball, which is slotted for release in March. The man himself was wearing sneakers from his forthcoming collaboration with Adidas, which from the looks of the press photos, will also be a huge success. He sure knows how to capitalize on a girl's love of sequins!
