Carolyn Massey Loves Tokyo (Part Two)

Last month Carolyn Massey was invited to Japan to showcase her designs at the British Embassy in Tokyo. As we long to see Tokyo with our own eyes we asked the designer if we could live vicariously through her. Thankfully she agreed. We served up the first part of Massey loves Tokyo last week and here we dish up the concluding part. Here we follow Carolyn's busy few days in Tokyo as she experiences all the delights the city has to offer whilst cramming in interviews, attending press days and of course showcasing her SS10 collection at the Embassy.

Press day at Peach PR...

I loved these mannequins, there were spookily lifelike. Carolyn Massey SS10!

Fantastic day at Peach PR - non stop interviews and meetings for both Hannah and I. Most notably with Switch magazine, The Senken, Rolling Stone, WWD, Fashion TV (My name is Carolyn Massey and I love fashion TV!) Harpers Japan and deeep breath...Vogue...

Dinner with the lovely Chinatsu, Yumi, Noriko and the girls from Peach, where we had a good luck fish! You eat this fish at special occasions to bring good luck!

Good luck fish with Peach PR!

Day three and it looks lovely outside many interviews to do! However, before we got started Yumi introduced us to the delicacy of deep fried pork sandwiches!! On white bread. Oh My God. So beautifully presented though...

Harijuku and surrounding areas, to do shops... i saw these windows...

KIDDYLAND. Now this is Very important. Look at these dolls! LOVE. Scary...

I made a trip to the wonderful Opening Ceremony. Where I'm pleased to add, I will be stocked for SS10!

Downstairs at Parco is the most amazing bookshop. This magazine is purely about cleaning and maintaining your clothes and shoes/accessories. Back in Harajuku, I saw a sign for a cat cafe- you can go and have tea and hang out with cats (EJ would love this)..!

Evening time and there was an event to open a Comme Des Garcons pop up shop. There were old copies of SIX. I LOVED SIX.

Now on to Fleet Ilya's amazing work. Yes please. I'll have some for Christmas please. Thankyou.

Everything has eyes on or feet...

Last morning...MASSEY LOVES TOKYO x


Massey's Tokyo diary has only intensified our desire to visit the city in the New Year and we are so pleased to see her make her mark on the city! 2010 is going to be her year. As a special treat the designer has invited us to share her sample sale information with you all. If you are in London this weekend you really have to swing by the Mare Street Studios to nab some designer bargains.
