    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

    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.

    PROFILE
    Tomoya Arai creates essential tools for daily life. Some of his pieces have a soft appearance, which he achieves through his distinctive hand-sculpting technique, while his white wood pieces have a rough appearance achieved through purposeful sword cuts that are left visible on the surface. He was born in Osaka in 1983 and moved to Tokyo at the age of 19. He started carving wood at age 23 and the following year, he held his first one-man exhibition at Saruyama in Motoazabu. Arai later moved to Kochi, where he concentrates on his artistic activities (and harvests his own crops) surrounded by the natural beauty of Shimanto.

    Yaser Shaw “Delivery Information”

    Yaser Shaw’s collection of hand spun, hand woven and hand stitched pashmina stoles made from traditional techniques of Kashmir - region of the northwestern Indian subcontinent - will be available at A&S Aoyama and several other A&S stores from Saturday, February 15th.

    The original pashmina material is extremely delicate and cannot withstand the pressure caused by machines. By carefully spinning and weaving these materials, they eventually acquire a natural texture which creates an exquisite drape and softness once you put them on. Also, the key to Shaw’s diverse design lies in the meticulous embroidery which is sought after not only by women but also by men. Sophisticated patterns are exquisitely created without adding any stress on the material.

    Please come and select your favorite piece among our collection which we handpicked in India. We look forward to your visit.
