Bottega Veneta, a luxury Italian brand, has collaborated with Daito Manabe, a digital guru, on new interoperation of the ss15 collection with the theme DANCER. They have created a video EMOTION OF SOUND, with the focus on sound, as the title says. From 7th March at the brand`s Ginza store you can view the installation, which also including interactive screen – it reads your initial movements and translates/responds in the short choreography by the shadow-dancers on the screen. All with a particular effect of beauty in motion, as the dance is.

For last few months there has been my display installation CRYSTAL & SWANS especially created for Vermeerist BEAMS. The exhibition was also a part of the solo exhibition with the same name – and when the exhibition ended last Nov, the display has remained till now. And as the time flies and it just simply can’t stay forever it will end soon – on 15th March – to make free space for new season`s installation.
It was based on the fall/winter fashion season – a carefully selected pieces from various collections by one and only creative mind behind Vermeerist BEAMS , Tomoko Inuzuka. Inspired and based on Inusuka`s choices I came out some key words in mind as such purity, inner strength, inner beauty, innocence, mystery. I had created to visual mood boards one with Swans and one with Crystals as a proposal to Beams. And ending up to combining both in one and that `s how CRYSTALS & SWANS were born. Apart the display installation, which represents more commercial part of my work, I had also created 7 original art works in collage technique – which was the art part of the whole CRYSTALS & SWANS concept. It was my first mini solo exhibition showed in years, opened to the public till mid of October. Here I am showing some photos from the opening.
And about the display – it is one week to go as it will be on only till 15th March, at Vermeerist BEAMS / INTERNATIONAL BEAMS GALLERY B1 Harajuku Tokyo.

My Little Box Japan office in Aoyama, Tokyo
I ve done my first visit to cute office of My Little Box Japan in Aoyama, then got invited to the very private and intimate event at Andaz hotel Tokyo Sky Suite in collaboration with Andaz Spa to celebrate the collaboration with long time Karl Lagerfeld’s muse Ines de la Fressange, only just before that happened I got knocked out by nasty cold to miss it all unfortunately. But my dear friends attended, the stories and gossips were passed and the photos were send to share some of them here.
At Andaz’s 37th floor AO Spa and Club has the apothecary concept and focuses on tailor made treatments. “Upon arrival you are entering an amazing spa-bar section, with fresh herbs, dried fruits and precious oils. All ingredients are locally sourced and dried on hotel facilities so no chemicals added and everything is fresh (and smells divine). Apart of dried ingredients, there are also fresh fruits and herbs that are mixed together with salts, oils and grains creating magical beauty potions.” – reported by Iwonka, new persona behind My Little Box Japan.

KENZO mini pop up store just popped out in ISETAN Shinjuku, Tokyo, featuring its women`s resort 2015 collection and that including some exclusive items prepared only for this occasion. Designers, living between New York and Paris, are often “referring” to these two cites in their collections and it s not different this time too. For inspirations, as they say, they “wish to pay homage to the refined signatures of the classic French woman`s wardrobe.”
