Interviewing And Wander (and ex-Issey Miyake) designer Mihoko Mori for global trend forecaster WGSN - here she talks about Japanese consumers’ increasing awareness of issues around sustainability.
Excerpt from the Tokyo Virtual Guide I put together for WGSN’s City by City section. With international travel still largely off the table, this video-rich report aims to give readers/viewers an on-the-ground perspective on the state of the city’s creative scene in 2020.
I shot, edited, and subtitled interviews with six key figures:
Jo Nagasaka, founder of Schemata Architects
Shinji Nanzuka, gallerist at Nanzuka Underground & Nanzuka 2G
Shoichiro Aiba, owner-chef at Life & Life Son
Mihoko Mori, co-founder/designer of And Wander
Shunsuke Ishikawa, founder/designer of Markaware, Marka & Text
Alex Fukudome, creative director of Firsthand
Tokyo-based writer, editor and consultant with an eye on travel, lifestyle, sustainability, culture, design and Japanese consumer trends.
