So you may have noticed that this week we’re totally Turning Japanese. Allow us to present Ladyloop: the 日本語 edition…

This beautiful book combines two of Bella’s favourite things in the whole world: the superb subtlety of Japanese fiction and cats. Enough said.

Selina is going gaga over these modern furushiki designs… and the strap that converts a scarf into a bag? Yes, please!

All this talk of Japan makes Clem hungry for ramen at Bone Daddies in Soho, the closest thing to the real deal in London.

Emma is going to re-watch the mind-fuck that is Peter Greenaway’s 8 1/2 Women

After watching this advert Celia wonders how close we are to making life-like Androids  it looks like Japan is almost there!

And if you are passing by Kyoto, Margherita says pay a visit to this incredibly lush shop.
