TAKESHI ENDO / Designer, Founder 


"All of Claustrum’s items feature brand new functions that can be found nowhere else, including one-hand operation and smart motion. In addition to the physical realm, we also explore functions in terms of aesthetics, intellect, society, economy, and other fields. The results are put through a repeated cycle of trial manufacture, experiments, and trial use at the Ginza Factory until they can be realized in the simplest fashion possible. As we accumulate experience in this way, we produce new mechanisms, construction methods, and surface processing methods that are truly unique. The parts included in our products are cooperatively manufactured with skillful factories on the outskirts of Tokyo. Together with artisans at dozens of dedicated factories such as metalworking, we cultivate our abilities while freely utilizing advanced technologies in each field. All assembly and finishing work takes place at the Ginza Factory. In the final process, minute adjustments are made to all products by hand to ensure they can be used as comfortably as possible. Videos showing how each item is operated are available on our website. After World War II, the location of the Ginza Factory was a plate glass processing workshop operated by the representative of Steel Inc. at that time (two generations before the current representative). This manual industry has been passed down over the generations in Ginza in this way. We also offer maintenance services so that our products can be used for as long as possible."

Tomas Maier joins fight to save Hotel Okura.

As the creative director of Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier has consistently sought to protect the brand’s heritage of craftsmanship. In this same spirit, Maier is now taking on a new kind of preservation project. In partnership with the Japanese publication Casa Brutus, Maier and Bottega Veneta have launched an initiative to raise awareness of the potential destruction of numerous significant Modernist buildings in Japan due to economics, politics and the preparation for the 2020 Olympics.
Maier, the son of an architect and a lifelong architecture enthusiast, became interested in Japanese Modernism in the mid-1980s when he first visited the Hotel Okura, a 1962 landmark designed by Yoshiro Taniguchi. (Supporters of the campaign are encouraged to use the hashtag #mymomentatokura to document their favorite details of the building on social media.) In the video shown here, Maier discusses the campaign and explores the hotel’s unique features, which continue to inspire his work. “It would be a great loss for the next generation to be unable to embrace the beauty of these icons for themselves,” he says. via: tmagazine

CAROLINE ISSA for Nordstrom.

STREET-STYLE star, editor and entrepreneur Caroline Issa unveils her first collection for Nordstrom next week, and unsurprisingly it's packed with pieces that suit her pared-back yet contemporary style to a tee. "I started this launch collection with mood boards of American style icons - women like Lauren Bacall, Slim Keith, Bianca Jagger and Lauren Hutton - women with timeless elegance and a point of view," Issa told us. "This collection was really about establishing a great line of essentials - the leather jacket, the utilitarian jacket, a great pencil skirt, and a striped cashmere top. For prints, I turned to a recent trip I took to Marrakesh where I was dazzled by all the mosaic tiles and the colours - they served as the basis for the colourways and the patterns on all the prints." 
"This collection is designed for professional women, someone who loves fashion and wants to look chic but doesn't want to spend too much time thinking about how to put together an outfit or how to get it on," she smiled. "She's active and really on the go and counts on the reliability of effortless dressing with pieces that can easily go from day to night. So yes, she's me and I know countless other women out there who will appreciate the collection I hope! But trust me, I'm road testing everything to make sure it's comfortable and beautiful quality!"
