    Yaser Shaw — Trunk Show 2020

    Pashmina stoles have arrived from 〈Yaser Shaw〉. Shaw’s production - spinning, weaving, and embroidering is all done by hand, staying true to the traditional techniques of the Kashmir region of India. A trunk show will be held at two A&S shops in Tokyo and Kyoto for three days from Friday, December 18th.

    Pashmina is a very fine raw wool, which can easily be damaged by mechanical work. This is why carefully twisting and weaving by hand spinning and hand weaving techniques are essential. The natural texture of the raw wool lives on, creating a unique softness and feeling of falling in place when worn. Delicate embroidery work is the highlight of Shaw’s designs - a wide variety of patterns that are received well not only by women but also by men. By the skill works of craftsmen, fine patterns are beautifully decorated without applying tension to the fabrics.

    At this trunk show about 200 different stoles will be available, including colorful new works and rare vintage items from his collections. We welcome you to please come and experience the rich colors and the finest touch of the fine embroidery in person.

    Perfumer H “Candle Refill Service”

    Arts & Science Aoyama and & SHOP Kyoto is starting a new service for fragrance brand Perfumer H, from Tuesday, December 15th.

    Perfumer H's handblown glass bottles and candle jars are made by British glass artist Michael Ruh. When perfumer Lyn Harris first met Michael, the first most important point she discussed with him was about the colours. The color palette was developed through trial and error, and were finalized to match the image of each scent. The special characteristics lie in the individual handblown processes and there are all one of a kind differences in slight colour and size.

    These glass bottles and jars are made with the concept that they should not be discarded when used – they are made to last a lifetime. Flagship shop Perfumer H, located in Melbourne, London, offers a service of pouring refills into customer’s used candle jars. Arts & Science will like to stay true to their concept and has been preparing to start the same service in Japan. We will accept request for candle refills of our candle fragrance selections that we offer in Japan.

    * We will need an official Perfumer H candle jar that has been burned through.
    * The service is limited to the fragrances sold by A&S. Refills will only be possible for the same fragrance as the specific candle jars.
    * Drop-offs and pick-ups are only accepted at the shops. Candle requests sent by post are not accepted.
    * In order to check the used status and scratches of your jars, we will take an image of the entire surface at the time of drop-off.
    * It takes about 2 weeks from drop-off to delivery of refills. Depending on availability, we may take more than 2 weeks. We will confirm the timeframe at reception at the shops.
    *For further details, please contact A&S Aoyama and & SHOP Kyoto directly.

    William Welstead Trunk Show 2020

    Every December for the last 14 years I have been lucky enough to come to Tokyo to show my collection to friends and clients of Arts & Science. This year will be different, and while I am unable to travel I will still be sending a selection of my new work to Arts & Science for my annual trunk show.

    In addition to the unusual diamonds and precious coloured stones that I normally work with I will be presenting a small collection of cabochon cut stones set in 22 carat gold. I am inspired by the ancient English and European royal jewels that were made before cutting techniques allowed faceted stones to be made. Cabochons were often a simply polished pebble from a river bed but when they are set in a jewel they can make a very powerful statement. These beautiful, sculptural stones show colour and lustre in very subtle way that I have always found very appealing.

    I will miss coming to Japan more than I can say and hope very much to visit in 2021. My very best wishes to everyone who has been kind enough to come to my trunks shows over the years.

    TENTHOUSANDTHINGS Stone Collection

    We will hold a jewelry custom order event by TENTHOUSANDTHINGS at & SHOP in Tokyo and Kyoto. This is a unique project in which designers Ron and David have traveled to India to work on a collection of original stones with the local craftsmen. At this event, we welcome you to choose your favorite stone with chains or leather straps to make your own one-of-a-kind combination. We will also introduce their new original 2020 collection.

    Original stones made in India
    The two designers Ron Anderson and David Rees had always a strong connection with natural stones. Even when their concept of making jewelry was first born, it was their fascination of ancient stone beads that drove their passion. From the desire to make their original jewelry by applying a shaped cut to an unprocessed natural stone, they traveled to Jaipur, India. The process takes several months; to make the mold, bring it to a local workshop, and have the stones hand-cut to fit the mold by professional technicians. In these moments, they would sit down next to a skilled stone cutter for long periods of time to have the shapes formed exactly how they imagined. The stone is then polished through several steps. During this process, new ideas will come up, and some were born by developing changes in the molds on the spot.

    “By actually going to the locations of the natural stones, we learned the real thrill of being able to developing these stones in the best ways - true to their characteristics,” said the two designers. Please take this opportunity to customize your favorite jewelry with each one-of-a-kind stone.

    Perseverance has been a big word for us this year, to keep going along our path, making things and trying to put more beautiful, special things out into the world. Looking back over the year i think a pause in our routines- even though enforced by the pandemic- has been a good thing, allowing us to proceed more carefully and thoughtfully. Always look for the silver lining.” — Ron Anderson, David Rees

    Pre-order Furniture Event by ikken

    “ikken” is a unit that integrates a design room and a furniture workshop, established in Kyoto in 2014. We will hold their first furniture order reception at ARTS & SCIENCE. We will introduce about 18 different styles of furniture at HIN in Kyoto from Friday, October 2nd and at A&S Daikanyama in Tokyo from Friday, October 16th.

    ikken is a unit of two professionals, first-class architect Takato Yoshida and furniture artist Kiyo Yamanaka, who were classmates in the department of architecture at their university. ikken was established in Kyoto in 2014 and directed the architectural design of A&S HIN which opened in 2016. Yoshida studied under architect Yoshifumi Nakamura, and Yamanaka studied under Shigefumi Abe who works on furniture for Lemming house. The year before the establishment of ikken, Yoshida partnered and worked very closely with Hitoshi Onishi, a furniture artist in Kyoto.
    Yoshida is mainly in charge of the design, Yamanaka is in charge of producing built-in furniture such as kitchens, and their collaboration with Onishi involves his furniture craftmanship of items such as chairs and tables. A unit also responsible for total space design, ikken always has in mind the harmony of the furniture and architectural space they will reside in.

    At this event, the main feature are the furniture pieces that ikken Yoshida selected especially for A&S, one in particular is the *Washi (Japanese-paper) cabinet made by the request of Sonya Park, the owner of ARTS & SCIENCE. The item was creative direction was completed through many repeated discussions between Park and ikken. There will also be various samples on display such as chairs and foldable tables, shelves and coat racks, and special orders can be made with your preferred type of wood and colors. Please take the time to enjoy the exhibition space itself as well, where playful children's chairs and wooden house toys will also be presented.

    Up until today, ikken has solely produced custom-made furniture. We welcome you to experience this new type of presentation exclusive to ARTS & SCIENCE.

    Le Yucca’s | Semi-Custom Order

    For the first time in two years, we will hold a semi-custom order event for <Le Yucca’s> at SHOES and THINGS.

    Le Yucca's shoes are designed in mind with a thorough understanding of the structure of the foot. The attractive characteristics of the shoes lies not only in the beautiful form, but also in the surprising comfort and the ease of wear. Enzo Bonafè, a long-established workshop in Italy, creates each pair of shoes with extraordinary care using an old-fashioned method that does not include adhesives.

    In addition to our semi-custom orders, we are offering a preorder opportunity for new styles of Le Yucca's SS21 collection and a special collaboration of pumps for A&S. The collaboration style has a deep slit in the front, and is inspired by a classical design that combines a soft rounded feminine silhouette with a thick piled leather heel. Bolognese (bag-sewn) McKay manufacturing method is used for the sole to create a good bend and fit to the feet.
    Please find this occasion to choose your own unique pair of shoes and experience the comfortable fit known to Le Yucca's. We look forward to receiving your appointment request.
