表参道 (Omotesandō)

Omotesandō Hills TokyoThere are always hundreds of things to see and do while I’m back in Tokyo but I always make time for a walk down the luxury lined boutiques of 表参道 (Omotesandō), 南青山 (Minami Aoyama), 銀座 (Ginza), and 渋谷区 (Shibuya).

Tokyo OmotesandoMy attempt to head out shopping on a weekday with the hope of escaping the crowds went miserably wrong when I saw this… Perhaps leading Bubble Boy’s life wouldn’t be so terrible as it would at least guarantee a bit of personal space as opposed to this.

Loewe Tokyo OmotesandoSpring’s most covetable accessory if you ask me. Loewe’s amazona bag has me craving.

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.

Issey Miyake, Pleats Please

Always exciting to check out what Japanese designer Issey Miyake has to offer when I’m in town. I have a weakness for his pleats.

This unique hat is made from Japanese knotting, which tends to focus on individual knots. Mizuhiko symbolizes togetherness and is usually made from washi, Japanese paper. Each knot is colorful, has a meaning and is used for a special occasion.

Fresh and beautifully neutral colors.
