not crazy artsy
but lovely artsy.
a new friend i got to know through tc just came back with some minä perhonen (2 dresses, 1 bag and 1 purse to be exact), by tokyo-based designer akira minagawa, whom i raved about during a drinking session some months back, after i got back from my japan trip….
i need to go back. kyoto this time. argh.
we love his avant-garde japanesque artsy style, hand-drawn prints and textiles, he has also published several art books, and i particularly love that he does not follow market trends and yet does well commercially. an inspiration, yes?
