Prabal Gurung takes to the sky, Swedish style lands in Osaka and NukeMe creates turbulent fabrics
Prabal Gurung is being tapped to design new uniforms for All Nippon Airways group's 60th anniversary last year. ANA surely chose New York based-Gurung in a bid to show its global aspirations, and it helps that he is one of the hottest commodities on the market, as a young up-and-comer with some major notches on his belt. He's already claimed fame with clients such as First Lady Michelle Obama, Prince William's wife, Kate Middleton, and Lady Gaga among others. He does also have some ties to Japan — he is currently chief designer of Onward Kashiyama-owned brand ICB NY.

Explore one of Tokyo's most indie neighborhoods at Shimokitazawa Sound Cruising
Tokyo's Shimokitazawa neighborhood is one of the most important places for indie music in the city. A lively suburb at the nexus between the Inokashira and Odakyu train lines, it's just distant enough from the big urban hubs of Shinjuku and Shibuya to avoid being absorbed by them, but close enough that it's relatively easy to access from pretty much anywhere. However, like much of the Tokyo indie scene, knowing where to go and what to see can be perplexing.
