{Minä Perhonen store in Kyoto}
If you ever consider going to Kyoto ... then visiting Minä Perhonen is an absoluut MUST! Minä Perhonen is a Japanese fashion house founded by Akira Minagawa...who is often characterised by his feminine, romantic style...and for his detailed tailoring, embroidery, patterns and quilting...Akira wants to create garments that goes beyond the limits of fashion and can last, rather than following the existing trends...please look at his stunning textiles right here...
A collaboration between Danish furniture manufactuer Fritz Hansen and minä perhonen resulted in these stunning chairs...The Egg, The Swan and Seven Chair designed by Arne Jacobsen were all dressed in minä perhonen fabrics...
...above you see an image of the minä perhonen store in Shirokanedai (a district of Minato Ward, in Tokyo)...i could sit forever on that cough and just dream away...last year minä perhonen launched a line for children, in the same style of patterns and details...by the way...'Minä' means 'I' and 'Perhonen' stands for butterfly...i have really have fallen in love ...
