  • Where do some of the most influential accessory designers venture to be inspired? OLIVIA WAKEFIELD finds out

    Olympia le-tan

    Tokyo, Japan

    This place inspires me because... of its mix of tradition with something very modern – the vibe is amazing and it makes me very happy.
    The cultural spots I love are... Yoyogi Park, the Ghibli and Nezu Museums.
    My favorite restaurant is... Kyubei, the Hotel Okura sushi bar. I order the Omakase, which means “chef’s choice”.
    My most-treasured discoveries are... the vintage stores in Nakameguro.
    My insider tip is... visit La Jetée, a shoebox-sized bar in Golden Gai.
    I bring back... Totoro [a Japanese cartoon character] merchandise.
    My inflight essentials are... a cashmere scarf, Brooks Brothers pajamas and lots of moisturizer.
