Our latest Hammock Tote is a bag with innate versatility. This fall, in tandem with its release, we meet three inspiring Japanese individuals to discover how they view their own work and how they grow, constantly evolving in their intimate worlds.
Michiko is always curious, always reading and taking notes with her signature pen and black notebook which she carries in two sizes. As part of her daily routine visiting museums and galleries, she goes to the Toraya cafe in Akasaka, Tokyo to reflect on what she saw, while enjoying traditional Japanese sweets and green tea.
“When I started working, it was two hundred men and me. I dared to stand out,” says Michiko Kitamura, costume designer and stylist. Not only is she one of the three protagonists of the campaign, but she also styled it. Now aged 72, she has blazed a trail in the predominantly male world of film and advertising for decades.
In collaboration with Japanese paper craft artist Shin Tanaka, we have variations of Hammock & Balloon bags available as paper craft toy which you can take home and build.
