Arts & Science

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

I don’t know all that much about Japanese retailer Arts & Science. What I do know is that I love their online presentation. The Arts & Science Concept page states that the owner and creative director Sonya Park, who also works as a fashion stylist, believes in the philosophy “that fashion is a tool in daily life rather than a tool for vanity.” Online, products are shot simply and beautifully. Judging from the photos found on the website, the shops aren’t too shabby either.
