My list of places I wanted to visit in Japan was long, but one place that was a must not miss was Stardust. I learned of Stardust because one of the brands we sell, Black Crane, is closely connected with the lovely owner, Kana Shimizu. Stardust is one of the most special places I've ever visited, and Kana has created a magical experience for all who enter. We had a delicious cabbage soup served with the most perfect utensils, in the most beautifully curated space, with the kindest people serving us. It was apparent this was the perfect place to get a new memorable coat. I tried on one of the works of art hanging on the rack while Kana told me about its Belgian designer, Jan Jan Van Essche. The interaction reminded me of the connections I have with our designers, and the passion I feel about the lines we sell.
