Buyer’s Log | Neighborhood Tokyo Headquarters

This past week I have been out in Tokyo for a 3rd round of our seasonal buying trips in Japan. Up first was a visit to the Neighborhood Tokyo Headquarters in Sendagaya. This coming Fall 2014 – Archive No. 0142 Exhibition marks the start of their 20th Anniversary. As always you can expect a gang of really exciting projects and collaborations  that are in the works.  Here’s a glimpse into their Tokyo showroom and some teaser shots of next seasons collection.

Curator Home Visit by Nalata Nalata

DANIEL_CURATOR

For the past little while I’ve been helping my sister and her boyfriend Steve with some guest curation on their website Nalata/Nalata. I’ve always said that quality is contagious and when you’re surrounded by some of the lines we carry all day, that appreciation for high-quality garments eventually carries over into other products and areas of your life. Whether it’s your kitchen tools, your transportation, or the mattress that you sleep on everynight, I believe it is good sense to invest in items that will grow with you and perform at a high level.

When the shop started bringing in Hender Scheme footwear a few seasons ago, I noticed that the company also produced amazing and beautiful homewares. While some of these items didn’t fit into what we do here at HAVEN, I thought it would be a great match for Nalata’s Japanese-focused homeware lineup.

Head over the the Nalata/Nalata site to view this small introductory feature on myself and a quick visit to my home in downtown Edmonton, Canada. And visit their online shop to view my carefully curated Hender Scheme selection.

Buyer’s Log | AW14 Tokyo Exhibition Season

Picking up where Dan last left off after NYC things have been non-stop… I had a quick stop over home in Vancouver for a couple days, then straight to Tokyo not once but twice in February. My typical schedule is 2 days in the air and 2-3 days on the ground in Tokyo. It’s hectic with the jetlag, that I end up with very little time to sleep at all. I attended a handful of showrooms and exhibitions for the upcoming season. Below are some quick random snaps and a few Fall/Winter 2014 sneak peeks from my travels….

The buying season in Japan is scattered all over the place, I’m heading back to Tokyo a couple more times this upcoming month (April) to finish off our Fall/Winter 2014 buying. We’re excited for the upcoming season as there are lots of new brands and exciting projects in the works.
