 Above: New Colorway for the Afterparty Print (working title is Negative Afterparty :) for ERMIE FW 12. 
Needs a bit of work still, but I really like it.

Below: Satoko sent me some of her favorite Haiku poems.
Have a great weekend!

Red camellia 
White camellia 
Falling down

                                               - Hekigoto Kawahigashi

The morning glory
It has taken the well bucket
I must seek elsewhere for water

                                                - Chiyo Kago

At the ancient pond
a frog plunges into
the sound of water

                                                - Basho Matsuo
First Autumn morning
the mirror I stare into
shows my father's face

                                                 - Kijo Murakami

Night; and once again
the while I wait for you
cold wind turns into rain
       
                                               - Shiki Masaoka

The new colorway is calm but the print is still hopping, very nice. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this.
