Monday, March 31, 2014 Globetrotter: Hirari Ikeda
When we say Hirari Ikeda is a Tokyo street fashion icon, we ain’t kidding. There are entire blogs dedicated to her ever-evolving style, and her badass look even caught the eye of Diesel Art Director Nicola Formichetti who placed her in the brand’s spring/summer 2014 campaign. When she’s not mean-muggin’ on the streets of Harajuku, she works in one of the most influential shops in Tokyo, Dog. Take a peek inside the store and find out more about Hirari’s daily style inspiration in our interview below!

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 Globetrotter: Tokyo Shop Girls
As our Tokyo adventures continue, we stop by two of the most influential clothing stores in Japan—Faline and Candy—and get to know the killer women behind them. Take a look inside some of the best hidden gems (literally) but, warning, you might want to book a flight to Japan ASAP.
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 Globetrotter: Rosa’s Japan Diary
In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve been mega obsessed with Tokyo as of late—and you can thank our Senior Content Editor Rosa Lieberberg for that. She headed to Japan (for the first time ever!) and met up with The Model Burnbook’s Cailin Hill and IO Echo’s Ioanna Gika in the heart of Tokyo. Luckily, she decided to share her super kawaii adventures with us and spill on all the best places to visit. Upon arrival, Rosa holed up at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, which had incredible views of the city—“I have a thing with views. It’s so peaceful, and it puts everything in perspective”—and it also happened to be where they filmed Lost In Translation. “I did think I should have a moment in sheer underwear like Scarlett, but then again, I’m not Scarlett so I didn’t do it.” She did, however, manage to bust out her For Love & Lemons body chain for the first time despite the freezing temperatures. “If I were to actually move to Tokyo, I would probably transform into a manga warrior, and this body chain was one step toward that.”
Thursday, December 26, 2013 Globetrotter: Keely’s European Diary, Part Three
Our girl Keely has finally returned to our side of the pond, and while we are very excited she’s back in the States, we are sad to see her amazing European adventures come to an end. As a tried-and-true trusty pen pal, she spoiled us here at home with this third (and final!) installment. You know what they say, third time’s a charm, and Keely’s snapshots of London, Barcelona and Paris are no exception.

Winter may be approaching, but that won’t stop our Studio Production Intern Keely Murphy from going on some seriously awesome overseas adventures. She’s back again with the second installment of her European diary—this time she traveled to London, Amsterdam and Paris. Cue pangs of jealously right about… now.
