Christopher Nemeth

Very sad that Tokyo has lost Christopher Nemeth – one of the most original & one of my all time favourite designers. His men’s fashion, inspired by English Victorian suits with a punk spirit and the man himself will be greatly missed..

Aloha!!

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

It’s not often an Englishman in Tokyo gets to say “Aloha”, but that’s exactly what I’ll be doing every Friday afternoon at 1:30pm on my Global Satellite program on 76.1 Inter FM, because we’ll have an Aloha Coffee Break with Maui Coffee Roasters.
Listen live on line at www.interfm.co.jp & drop in to the new Maui Coffee Roasters cafe in Hiroo – info here www.mauicoffeeroasters.jp

Chilling out Hawaiian style at Maui Coffe Roasters, Hiroo.

Hawaiian style chocolate brownie & cafe latte.. yum yum!!
