over the counter by ARTS&SCIENCE

when i'm in tokyo i often find myself popping into an ARTS&SCIENCE lifestyle store for a bit of a browse.

i only just found out that in november of last year the stylist sonya park had opened a new concept store for ARTS&SCIENCE called over the counter.

the over the counter concept is just that, shopping over-the-counter.
the store has been designed in such a way that customers are catered to on a personal level, no doubt with the amazing only-in-japan japanese service, with a staff member introducing the products in detail and at a leasurly pace.
the products selected for ARTS&SCIENCE are top notch, coming from all over japan and the world, with most products having been hand crafted with passion.
the selection is amazing too, from clothing to cutlery, accessories and gourmet food items... the works.
a line up like this can make for a difficult decision making call when shopping (unless your credit card is doing the decision making for you...)

i think a unique concept store like this will work wonders in a city like tokyo.
can't wait to check out this new store!
