This month, Vogue Nippon reaches its 10th anniversary celebrating with an issue entirely dedicated to Manga.
Not just a clever dissertation about the fine art and its (strong) relationship with fashion, but something that goes beyond and it's fun and enjoyable even if you, like me, can't read it!
My favorite part is certainly the Manga about Anna Dello Russo (fashion director at large for Vogue Nippon) and other familiar fashion faces. Another way to have a look (or to stalk...) Dello Russo's style after her famous street portraits from The Sartorialist .

And because I'm here talking about Japan, Manga and all the related paraphernalia, here's the latest video by Murakami for Louis Vuitton. It's called Superflat First Love and it's a short film celecrating six years of collaboration between Takashi Murakami and Vuitton.
Last but not least, to complete this virtual journey to Far East, don't forget to follow Jane Aldridge's adventures in Japan with Sea Of Shoes live from Tokyo!
