Dear Shaded Viewers,
L’Eclaireur Tokyo celebrates their one year anniversary and for that occassion Martine and Armand Hadida flew into town last night.
I spoke with Armand this morning to find out what sets l’Eclaireur apart from the rest, to hear what he thinks about Tokyo fashion and how and why they choose to carry the brands that they do in their shop. You will have to wait to read the interview in commons&sense magazine but I can tell you this, they only buy brands that have a personal story to tell and are of the finest quality. Commerciality is not a consideration when they buy. And thoughts about Tokyo fashion, they believe that the next strong wave for fashion is coming from Japan.

Thank you l’Eclaireur and commons&sense magazine for bringing me to Tokyo. Akiko and Kaoru were attentive to every detail like two angels. It was heavenly…and so was the view. Off to the airport and back to Paris where there are practically no taxis and the service, well, let’s just say it’s not like over here.
