for savvy shopping
Shibuya-ku' classiest shopping district just got a little swankier. Daikanyama Address
opened its doors on August 19. The name is not nearly as impressive as the open-air
piazza, chic cafés, lanky suspension bridges and dazzling area of designer boutiques. All
highlight the "relationship between art and fashion." You'll find names like
Vivienne Tam, Kate Spade, Nose UK, Madina Milano and more over 43 in all. It's the
perfect place to spend a relaxing Saturday afternoon, shopping, eating and people

In case you've missed the larger than life ad campaign on Omotesando and Meiji dori
crossing, iMac has matured. This season's colors are a little more sophisticated: Sage,
indigo, ruby, snow and graphite. The lastest additions to the iMac family boast wireless
internet surfing with Airport, iMovie2 for amateur digital video editing and a Harman
Kardon Odyssey audio system with MP3 technology. The new iMacs come in four models that
top out at 500MHz with 30GB storage capacity. Three models feature a DVD/CD player. In
Tokyo, space is always an issue, and the latest supercomputer from Macintosh, the PowerMac
G4 Cube, is as kawaii as it is compact. But don't let the size fool you. This PowerMac
packs a punch at 450MHz with 64MB of high performance RAM, 1MB of backside level 2 cache,
a 20GB Ultra ATA/66 hard disk drive, DVD-ROM drive with DVD-Video playback and the ATI
RAGE 128 Pro graphics card with 16MB of graphics memory.
|"Crack print" dragon
overprint sweat shirt from Diesel's Five Star Luxury of Dirt Line
DIESEL's spring/summer collection sings the praises of grunge. Very apropos of the line,
which features segments hailing the "five star luxury of dirt," this year's ad
campaign has no supermodel at the helm. Instead, one Frank P. Stevenson, an
indistinguished gentleman from Florida's Everglades, showcases the line on his
"homemade" website (www.kingfrank.com)
where his "professional" photos of the collection are on display. The Five Star
Luxury of Dirt sports a sportier look this season with college crack print sweatshirts,
dragon logo tee shirts, and overprinted items with a "punky and trashy" look.
Other themes of the collection take their inspiration from the military (combined with
ethnic and punk influences), martial arts and "Bangalore tailoring." A slitted
scarf in olive and Mao-collared jacket are a few innovative hightlights.
