The Selby is in our place

Todd Selby is in town and he stopped by to share some thoughts with us, in exchange for croissants. We’re big fans of Todd’s work, and enjoyed the discussion which touched variously on the topics of leather, style dogma, art direction, vegetables and ping pong. Todd was also kind enough to turn us up to eleven in our entrance hall before leaving. Safe travels Todd – come again soon!

History repeating itself itself

After the arrival of a large police van and a media entourage to interview our Tokyo neighbor Yosano-san today, our neighborhood police box that
disappeared in September 2009
has finally returned. Yosano-san has been appointed minister of economic and fiscal policy, and the police box has been reappointed our favorite law enforcement kiosk.
