TOKYO — As Japan’s capital city prepares to host the 2020 Summer Olympics, its ever-quick rate of development has reached new levels, with renovations, refurbishments and construction sites seemingly on every street. Evidence of this can be seen in a handful of new large-scale, multipurpose developments that are drawing crowds into what are already popular shopping areas.
Tokyu Plaza Ginza in 2016 opened with 16 floors and 538,195 square feet of floor space. It was followed last spring by Ginza Six, which quickly became quite possibly the most luxurious shopping center in the area, as well as the largest, sitting on two full blocks of land in the city’s most expensive neighborhood. It has 241 stores and spans more than 1.6 million square feet. If all that square footage weren’t enough, this year the latest multiuse real estate complex to join the ranks, Tokyo Midtown Hibiya, bowed.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
