We rented a car and drove to Kamakura and Enoshima last weekend. We had the best handmade soba made by a very cool ojisan. Great craftsmanship.

Finally managed to tidy up and take a decent picture of my new apartment. It’s really tiny but still, it’s double the size of my old place and I love it. I really wanted to create a ‘bedroom’ and a ‘living room’ space so I used these display shelves as partition in the middle of the room. I am glad that I can now display some of my ceramic pieces and books that used to sit on my loft. Behind these shelves are my bed and a nice balcony. Pretty spacious for a tiny person I guess?

AW10 catalogue

We had our AW10 catalogue photo shoot 2 weeks ago. The dynamics have changed pretty much as we have new members in the design/product development team. Every designer has their unique style and I think this would be one of the more interesting catalogues we’ve done so far. Also, for those of us who have been doing it for a few seasons now, the experience really plays a huge part in making a good clean & simple composition.

The shoot was done in Wall by Studio Ease, located at Tsunashima. It is a really nice studio but it was quite challenging trying to fit our colorful products into the rustic set up. We had to rent props to spice up our scenes. Going to prop rental stores is one of the highlights for me as you can find almost anything there and they all look photogenic. Things like these:

This season, I have payed more attention to the styling of clothes to compliment my Glee products. As for the glee blankets sets seen above, I have chosen bold patterns in black and white to bring out the vibrant colors of the products. Glad my eley kishimoto sneakers came into good use! Will be posting more pictures of the photo shoot soon! stay tuned!

Went bowling last Saturday at Shinjuku Kabukicho. It was fun! I think I like bowling even though I am really bad at it.

Went to Atelier doux dimanche in Jiyugaoka last sunday and got a perm for the first time!! The salon is a 2 story stand alone building decorated with cute french antiques and colorful knick knacks. Nice choice of music and good selection of magazines & books to read when you get your hair done. Good service with regular servings of ice cold tea. The sister store, Galerie doux dimanche is one of nicest stores in Jiyugaoka with a great collection of books and goods by european designers. Both are highly recommended! ★★★★★
