My Tokyo: A Fashion and Design Shopping Guide

Totally exhausted from an extended shopping trip to Tokyo last year, Australian designer Eloise Rapp decided to create a handy shopping guide.

Ellie: Hi Eloise, the guide sounds really good but according to the link the pdf version is sold out? I’d understand the hard copy not being available but what about the pdf?
5am je t♥aime: supa cool! {heart} it! i’m going to blog about this guide,too. just contacted catkinandteasel…will link back to japanesestreet,too^__^
Kjeld Duits: @kagitsune: Actually, the hard copy is $15.00; the pdf version $7.50. Still a fantastic deal!

My Tokyo: A Fashion and Design Shopping Guide

Traditional Japanese Colors - in Pottery

The resurgent popularity of kimono has given traditional Japanese colors new life. In this second last article in the series, Sierra explores traditional colors in Japanese pottery.

Louis Adroit: We sell Old Swiss Military bags. Check out our shop.
Sierra Sroka: Thanks Srokama! Actually the town where my pottery teacher is from is called Seto-shi (near Nagoya) and is known for making the export pieces to the US after the war. Although most are mold made, they are quite beautiful and fun pieces to find.
srokama: Such beautiful, artful original pieces in this article. The colors are striking. Have Always had an appreciation of Japanese ceramics. Some of our Re-Sale stores now have pieces of Japanese dinner ware that was part of a large set. Many of these Japanese sets were brought back to the US by Vietnam vets during the 50’s and 60’s. The simple, delicate, graceful designs are beautiful. Finding a bowl, plate or platter is fun.

Kjeld Duits: @bilgen: When it comes to fashion, Japan is quite tolerant. Although you won’t see many people like this in the countryside, even there it is accepted when people dress differently.
bilgen: @Annabelle, it’s the same here, Turkey. You can’t see a guy wears heels, at least where i live, you can not see people like this. I’m 21 years old and in my life time, i didn’t wear anything higher than 3 cms. So it must be really painfull to wear high heels. Btw, sorry but i should say, If someone like him was here, who knows how would people act. And it’s too bad, because it’s a little strict here… :/

Art by the Meter

We are all used to buying cloth and even space by the meter. But art by the meter? Tokyo based art gallery ART-Meter is making it a success.

Guerilla Embroidery: What a fabulous idea! As a textile artist (and not Japanese) I couldn’t take advantage of this, but maybe us Europeans will pick up the idea soon.
ayara: this is so cool! A new way of appreciating art =)
Kjeld Duits: I guess that non-flat art, like pottery and sculptures, could potentially be sold by volume, priced 10 by 10 by 10 centimeters.

2otaku: Looked like she just got out of bed to She’s cute.
Marie Sasago: @Lactose Intoler-Art: Thanks for the comment! I feel the same way. If it was a gyaru fashion girl who had this bag, I wouldn’t like it but it really fits Marino-shi! @Tofu: So do I! It’s so feminine and clean!! @Diandra: Yeah, I hadn’t seen many Mori-girls, so I was so happy to find her! @Leila Silva: Exactly! I can’t agree with you enough:)!! @JESSU: Yeah:) It’s very easy to match with other pieces as well! @sandy: Je ne parle pas Francais mais merci! Is it a quote or something? Thanks for the comment anyway!
