i love the story behind visvim's new store in kyoto. while visiting kyoto, you can just feel the history oozing from the city and the buildings. i would be quite happy to sit in an old alley, close my eyes and smile for hours, imagining everything that happened here years and years ago.
hiroki nakamura's new f.i.l. store is located in the storefront of a 16-generation-old doll making shop. bought from the 90-year-old woman who spent her entire life working there, he gave her an apartment above the shop, and she comes to the store every day to arrange flowers. so cool.
i can't wait to see more pictures.
