Kawaii shop: Farfetch feat Le Ciel Bleu

Farfecth superstore 2014 Winner: Restir, Japan
via farfetch

The reason for introducing Farfetch is that my favourite store in Japan along with their own label i.e. Le Ciel Bleu won the "superstore 2014" prize! I couldn't be more certain about their skill to pick the very best - at least according to my own taste.

I am a bit of a wanderlust girl always craving to travel from one place to the other. Which is nice, as you learn new cultures and reconsider your own, but has sometimes terrible consequences like missing those brands discovered somewhere else, that became a stable but happen to not be available in your current location. This is probably why the Farfetch concept so interesting to me.

Farfetch is a web portal to connect fashion-forward customers with cool boutiques all over the world.

Distance has for many years, not been a boundary for you to shop overseas, but in this era of advocacy we all find it complicated to decide what to pick and where. The amount of fashion shops in the internet is quite overwhelming. Farfetch focus is to select and distribute those small pearls that often only locals know. This breaks the boundary for independent (sometimes smaller) businesses to reach out to people beyond their city, and capture global sales.

Farfetch is 100% online with a fantastic vision: "to support independent fashion and to the cultural diversity that comes from uniting the perspectives of hundreds of different buyers, each with their own unique style and taste."
which is to fashion, what we try to do by sharing our travel experiences, to inspire and help independent travellers to experience places as locals do.

Having said so, you can also get japanese fashion shipped to your home, directly from Restir - but watch out for the TAX, specially in EU if the value goes over 150€, it may be really high.
