Travel: Barneys Japan

One of our favorite times of year is spent in Tokyo for a series of trunk shows hosted at Barneys Japan. This year designer Lisa Salzer traveled with our Marketing Director, Lexi Cross, to meet with clients and showcase the best of our newest PF15 Tesserae collection and one-of-a-kind vintage styles. The trip started with a free day to roam around Tokyo, including a walk through Yoyogi Park and a stroll through Cat Street to uncover some incredible vintage stores. Four trunk shows followed, including one event at Shinjuku, two at Ginza and one at the Yokohama location.
