Peter Rabbit Exhibition 

Hello dear readers! Here in Japan many schools and companies have been on summer holidays. During the holidays I went to an exhibition celebrating 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter. Laurens Seiji came too!

  
He’s a big baby and getting a little heavy for me!

  
He’s been sticking his tongue out a lot lately 😛

  
I got him a little set of board books at the gift shop and a print of some elegantly attired rabbits to hang in the living room.

The exhibition is on until the 3rd of September at Tokyo Fuji Art Museum.
Thanks for reading and see you next time!

Takehisa Yumeji Museum of Art & Yayoi Museum of Art

Hello dear readers! How are you? 

ごきげんよう!サフィラです。

Last week I went to the Yayoi and Takehisa Yumeji Museums. Yumeji Takehisa was a self-taught illustrator, poet and style influencer of the first part of the 20th century. The Yayoi museum was founded in order to exhibit the works of Kasho Takabatake, another prominent illustrator from the same era, but also houses different exhibitions throughout the year. The one we saw was the work of Sayume Tachibana, an artist who it seems was little appreciated in his lifetime. His paintings are beautiful but rather eerie.

先週友達と一緒に弥生美術館と竹久夢二美術館へ行きました。根津にあります。弥生美術館は高畠華宵の作品を展示するための美術館です。他の芸術家の展覧会もあります。今回は橘小夢の展覧会でした。素敵な絵がよくあります!

We decided to try to dress up Taisho Roman style, combining Japanese and Western clothes and retro styling. This photo is from the museum’s twitter.
私達は大正ロマンのコーデを着て行きました!この写真は美術館のtwitterからです。

When we arrived we had lunch at the museum cafe, Minato-ya. The curry was really yummy!
最初美術館の隣の港やでお食事しました。美味しいカレーをいただきました!

My yukata is from the recent Takehisa Yumeji x UNIQLO collaboration. I really love the striking colours and simple but cute design.
私の浴衣は竹久夢二xUNIQLOのコラボです。素敵ですね!私は紺と赤のコンビが大好きです!

Gloria Copetillo Exhibition 2

Hello dear readers! How are you?

ごきげんよう!サフィラです。

As you know, I’ve been very naughty lately about not posting regularly and as a result I have a huge backlog of things to tell you about….

ごめんなさい、最近ブログをあまり更新しません。でも、今から出来るだけ更新します!宜しくお願いします。

I went to this exhibition in around October last year. It was Mexican lolita artist Gloria Copetillo’s second exhibition in Tokyo.

去年の10月くらい、メキシコ人のイラストレーターのグローリラコペティロさんの展覧会へ行きました。今回は東京で二番目の展覧会でした。

It was lovely to see new work from her and see her style developing. As with the previous exhibition, a wide range of genres within lolita fashion were represented.

今回も色々なロリータのジャンルがありました。甘ロリとクラシカルロリータなど。

This exhibition included boystyle! I thought it was great!!

素敵な王子様もいました!

Also, this time there were handmade accessories for sale, made by the artist herself and featuring her illustrations.

今回、手作りのアクセサリーが売れました。グローリアさんは自分で作りました。
