On location: Hello, Tokyo!

this month, we took to the vibrant streets of Tokyo, Japan. in between
shots, our crew managed to squeeze in a spot of souvenir shopping…
Sushi-shaped candy: “I brought these back as a cute gift for my coworkers.
Love the whimsy and tongue-in-cheek quality they have.
And, as with everything else in Japan, the packaging is just exquisite.”


—Gayle, head women’s stylist

Tenugui: “These are hand-dyed cotton cloths called tenugui. They feature
traditional Japanese patterns, and people in Tokyo use them for anything
and everything—gift wrap, headbands, lunch boxes, you name it.”


—Brian, crewcuts prop stylist

Handmade brushes: “I bought these handmade brushes in a tiny store in
the Asakusa neighborhood. You can find all sorts of traditional
Japanese items there, from makeup worn by Kabuki actors to
horsehair toothbrushes like these.”


—Allison, associate stylist

Soy sauce bowl: “This beautiful soy sauce bowl comes from a store called
Pass the Baton, which sells used items and traditional Japanese goods.
All the used pieces have a tag telling the story of where they come from and
their past owner—a really unique and personal touch.”


—Allison
