“eat in studio”, organized by food expert and critic Yasuhiro Watanabe, is a reservation-only restaurant.

eat in studio-02

You go to his house armed with drinks, and sample his cooking there.

eat in studio-03

After working at “Comme des Garçons”, he started to work in the cooking business. Of course it goes without saying that the taste is amazing. On top of that, his arrangement of the food, his tableware, and the interior decoration of his house are also amazing. The esthetic sense he demonstrated at “Comme des Garçons” is more than apparent.

The Espressologist

The Espressologist

My friend Naho Ogawa illustrated the Japanese version of “The Espressologist”, a novel for young adults. The story is about a high school girl who works as a barista in a Chicago coffee shop. She determines the customer’s personality type based on the drink they order, and then searches for an appropriate partner for them, it’s a sweet love story. All sorts of drinks appear in the story, it makes you want to have a cup of coffee.

Naho said she found the author on facebook and suddenly decided to send her a message. The Japanese translation and Naho’s illustrations fit together well, it’s a very cute book.

A V-neck with button fastenings at the front and elbow-length sleeves is elegant and exclusive. This blouse will look great with anything from jeans to a skirt.

I got this cotton and wool-blend skirt from Marc by Marc Jacobs. It’s fun to wear the skirt that is pleated for fullness.
