shadows

In Tokyo there was one shop I wanted to visit; a book store, of course. T-Site Tsutaya, in Daikanyama, Tokyo is my heaven-on-earth. A wonderous sanctuary to lose myself in. A world within worlds. A marvel to be explored but never truly discovered. It is here, in a tiny section of the shop where one may find an English book or two, that I found “In praise of shadows”, by Junichiro Tanizaki. A piece of literature that is unquestionably art. I have, indulgently,  read it numerous times already. Returning for its beautiful prose, its exploration of shadows and it’s devotion to the Japanese culture.

Cuyana. I love this brand and what it stands for.

Fewer, better is the philosophy behind everything we do. We create timeless collections for the modern woman through carefully selected fabrics, precise silhouettes and attention to detail.

I recently gifted myself a coat from Cuyana. Completely in love with it. So soft. So warm. So chic. Next up - perhaps the shirt dress :)
