A Day in Little Tokyo / Art District

 

Last weekend we did a small walk in China Town, DTLA.  It’s quite amazing experience and we quite like the authenticity of China Town and cannot wait to go back to get some Dim-sum.  This weekend we decided to visit Little Tokyo to check out what life look like during Post-COVID19. 

Little Tokyo also known as Little Tokyo Historic District, is an ethnically Japanese American district in downtown Los Angeles and the heart of the largest Japanese-American population in North America. With roots dating to the 1880s, Little Tokyo is a major cultural and civic center for Japanese Americans living in Southern California.  It is one of  only three official Japan towns in the United States.   Before COVID-19, we often came here to visit museums, restaurants, bars and all kinds of art events.  Read on for our walking tour today in Little Tokyo.

A Hot Sustainable Trend from Fashion to Home in the Year of 2020

With the arrival of summer, we see cane, rattan, wicker objects from runway  to home all over the internet.

So, what do you think? Do these woven handbags just put you in a vocation mood?   These woven bags are seen to have their own charm—structured, functional, boho, artistic, vintage and unique.  They can perfectly combine with any outfit, formal or non-formal with an understated relaxing elegance.     Woven bags became popular in the 70s which was popularized by artist Jane Birkin that she wore for a walk. Then woven bags became a trend again in 2017 when several world designers showcased summer collections, such as Dolce & Gabbana, Charlotte Olimpia, Tory Bruch, Gucci and Chanel. In the year of 2020, these woven bags have became even increasingly popular thanks to their natural beauty.   Maybe, we all desire to have a piece of nature to ground and calm us and keep us cool in this strange time.

Luxury brands are taking materials such as rattan, straw, raffia and canvas and treating them with the same care and attention as they would high-end materials. What’s more, they are employing techniques more commonly associated with cottage industries – such as weaving, macramé and crocheting – to create pieces with a more handmade appeal.
