Afternoon Tea in Japan asked me ages ago to do some designs for all kinds of wet weather gear to launch for their Rainy Season collection, it's finally been launched and I must say those umbrellas look wicked !

In what store is this display? In Tokyo?

Top Bird @ Wee Birdy said...

Love the bird with the umbrella in his beak. Any chance we'll see some of this range at Ryantown?

BTW, just posted about this on Wee Birdy. xx

I'm sorry but I don't know where that actual display is located. I know it's in Tokyo. Afternoon Tea is quite a well known brand so shouldn't be too hard to uncover.
We really want to get some of this stuff for Ryantown HQ in Columbia Rd, as soon as we've pinned them down, I feel our first competition coming on !
PS Thanks for posting Top Bird !!!!

Oh please pin this down for your great shop.

I love the rain and the umbrellas make me smile. All the other lovely items are fabulous!

My Japanese translating skills are slim to none! I may have to start buying blindly!

Hi!

Hi, I couldnt find any contact info, so I'm just going to leave you a comment. I've been planning and designing a tattoo that incorporates elements of your work amongst some text. I wouldnt want to get it if it made you uncomfortable to have your designs reproduced when its not in your own art work. you can contact me at rina(dot)anxiety(at)gmail(dot)com

hello
I love ur collection of 'Walking in the rain'.
It conveys an attitude which I find very delightful.:)
It s such a pity that your works are not displayed in Hong Kong and people like me can only see them on the internet.:(
