A Little White Dress {Event Report - Tokyo}



Hello there,

Here is a report on last weekend's event at Gallery Aqui in Tokyo. I had done a photo shoot with my daughter, published last week on the blog (read here),  with a pretty white cotton dress handmade in the Philippines and imported in Japan. There were plenty more for sale at the event, as well as Mexican baskets/home decor by trensa, handmade brooches by Calaverita and mugs by nicoxNICO. I got a little bag (similar to the one in picture #6 with the mugs below) and I have been using it everyday ever since. A summer essential!

Le monde de Sophie et Chocolat {Atelier}


Friends,

Today I am bringing you over with me to visit Sophie et Chocolat's atelier located in Ebisu in Tokyo. Ebisu is a fantastic place, well-known for its abundance of restaurants and it's a stone-throw away to trendy Daikanyama, eccentric Shibuya and quiet Naka-Meguro. I'd surely love to have my studio-atelier there too! It was my second time visiting the team's atelier for a meeting, and I enjoyed looking at all the knick-knacks, vintage or not, that Chieko-san and Kyoko-san love to collect when travelling. What an eclectic mix!


I am loving this handmade crown that Kyoko-san shopped in Vietnam, a great alternative to the paper tiaras I have been making lately! And below are the lovely hand-embroidered brooches I had mentioned in my previous post, so cute and well-done!



I was accompanied by my two children this time as they are already on holidays. They enjoyed the atmosphere as much as I did, especially the vintage Barbie toys! It was funny to witness how differently a boy and girl will interact with (girls) toys. My son was fascinated by the castle as you could open and close it with a key. I let you imagine the !
 



Visit Sophie et Chocolat's webiste today!

A little White Dress {Event}


Friends, 

Coming up this weekend is yet another event you may want to check out, and rightfully so if you have children. What will be in store? Pretty cotton dresses handmade in Philippines (in Manila) and imported in Japan and colourful baskets from Mexico by trensa, a perfect match!
It will take place at Gallery Aqui in Setagaya-ku, right by Komazawa park. My daughter Chloé is lucky to own both a dress and a cute blue basket so we set up a little photo session at the park for you. Enjoy!
