TOKYO SKY TREE x mina perhonen

One of the most talked about new landmarks of Tokyo right now that will open May 2012, the TOKYO SKYTREE has released their new staff uniforms yesterday and yes they are designed by Akira Minagawa and produced by mina perhonen - my favourite Japanese designer of all time!

Mr Minagawa spent a year to design and produce these uniforms and all the process was done within Japan, from textile productions to sewing, they are all made in Japan which is one of the important things Mr Minagawa is particular about his creating philosophy. I can not wait to go and see them :)

  2. Wow, staff uniforms with a bit of quirkiness. Can't go wrong there. I really like the fabric of the yellow dress with yellow triangles all over it.
