南青山 (Minami Aoyama)

Cartier, Minami Aoyama Tokyo JapanEnjoying the finest of what 南青山 (Minami Aoyama) has to offer. Shopping in the luxury brand’s uniquely designed buildings is seriously a treat and I’m loving the architecture!  The Cartier building designed in the shape of a diamond by architect Bruno Moinard, 2005. Then, in the background is the “Jewels of Aoyama” designed by Jun Mitsui and Associates, 2002.

In keeping with my latest luxury binge, I figured an upgrade in the towel department was necessary. What do you think? These fabulous Céline towels drew me in with their amazingly fluffy texture and I can’t wait to hop in the shower and give them a try after. Bathing in luxury, literally. This could be a fabulous gift idea for a darling of yours, as towels such as these are both an elegant and practical solution.

10 Corso Como – Comme des Garçons

Had a trip down memory lane as I visited the Corso Como – Comme des Garçons store here in Minami-Aoyama, Tokyo. Minami-Aoyama is one of the more popular shopping areas along with Omotesando, which has turned into a catwalk of funky styles. Both are a must when visiting Tokyo.

The area is well known for its exclusive fashion houses and restaurants. I felt as if I was back in Milan, where I first visited the 10 Corso Como lifestyle concept store with fashion, design, music, art and photography. Icing on the cake, I ran into Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani.
