Tokyo-a visit to Lift


Dear Shaded Viewers,

Akiko and I have been visiting a few shops, first this morning was Lift, actually there are several Lift boutiques, the shop decides on a theme each season, a sculpture around that theme exists for a time like an installation, the theme this season is Escape, escape as in to a higher place.


The owner of Lift, Manami Tsunoda is standing in front of the amazing dressing room. Ryuji Monma is in front of the white doors.The structure was found in Japan where doors this high usually do not exist outside of palaces.
