  • Mister Donut Collaborates with Belgian Royal Chocolate Brand Wittamer

    20.January.2022 | FOOD

    Mister Donut locations nationwide are now selling products from the ‘misdo meets Wittamer’ collection, developed in collaboration with the Belgian royal patisserie brand Wittamer. These tasty treats will be available at participating shops until late February. 

     

    Since 2017, under the brand slogan “Good Things Come to Mister Donut,” the brand has collaborated with a number of companies from around the world to invigorate its already delicious selection of sweets. To start 2022, the beloved donut chain is teaming up with Wittamer to bring their ‘Chocolat Samba’ and ‘Praline Chocolat’ to customers throughout Japan.

     

    The newly-developed chocolate donut batter is made by applying the same method to make cakes to donuts, creating a light mouthfeel very much like taking a bite of chocolate cake. By combining it with ganache cream and whip, the flavor becomes even richer. It might be difficult to take a bite of something so beautiful, but if you’re near a Mister Donut, you should give these a try before they’re gone!

    Covered in graham cracker hazelnut cream and filled with ganache whip, the cocoa powder on top takes the flavor to new heights.

    Caramel mocha cream and ganache blend together with caramel chocolate and nuts for a decadent and luxurious treat.

     

    Chocolat Blueberry: ¥200 (Without Tax)
    Chocolate dough and blueberry jam blend seamlessly with ganache cream. Topped with raspberry-flavored chocolate flakes, this is a showstopper.

  • The St. Regis Osaka Launches Strawberry Afternoon Tea for a Limited Time

    16.January.2022 | FOOD / SPOT

    The St. Regis Osaka Hotel is offering a special strawberry-themed afternoon tea set until May 2022. 

     

    Strawberry Afternoon Tea ‘5th Avenue Collection’

    Strawberry  Parfait ‘The New York Gallery’ 

    Strawberry Afternoon Tea ‘5th Avenue Collection’ to GO!

     

    The St. Regis New York Hotel was founded in 1904, and is located on 5th Avenue, one of the most famous shopping streets in the world. This new afternoon tea set features a gorgeous three-tiered array of colorful savory and sweet dishes inspired by the many fashion items that line the shop windows of the NYC street. 

     

    The Strawberry Heel Panna Cotta shows a woman’s leg peeking out from the dessert clad in a fancy high heel, while the Berry Opera is made to look like a designer bag. Many of the available dishes are made using seasonal strawberries sourced from around Japan.

     

    The French Bistro Ruedor on the first floor is also offering ‘The New York Gallery,’ a strawberry parfait set of three inspired by the art of New York City. This set also comes with an assorted plate of six savory and sweet items.

The LOVE Strawberry mixes juicy, sweet, and sour strawberries with pistachio mousse and was inspired by Banksy’s ‘Balloon and Girl’ painting. The Banana & Chocolate parfait pulls from the colorful wall art seen all around the famous city streets.

     

    For those wanting something less sweet, hamburgers, hot dogs, and bagels, all popular on the streets of Manhattan, will be served alongside these strawberry delights. For those wary about the current pandemic conditions, the Fifth Avenue Collection can also be taken home!

  • KEITA MARUYAMA and Sumo Wrestler Chiyonofuji Announce First Collaboration

    15.January.2022 | FASHION

    Designer KEITA MARUYAMA has launched the first in a series of collaborations with the Chiyonofuji Project at the pop-up event ‘KEITA MARUYAMA Lucky Charms Market’ at Ginza Mitsukoshi. The items are also available at the KEITA MARUYAMA Official Online Store.

     


     

    Chiyonofuji Mitsugu, nicknamed ‘The Wolf,’  was a professional sumo wrestler and the 48th yokozuna of the sport. Yokozuna is the highest rank one can achieve, and during his 21-year career, Chiyonofuji set records for most career victories and most wins in the top division, which earned him an entry in the Guinness World Records. The embroidery used in the new collection was supervised by Sawako Sakai, the creator behind the accessory and bag brand wild rose hips. These pieces will include cashmere blend organic cotton knitwear, velvet embroidered drawstring bags, and more.

     

    On January 2, 2022, KEITA MARUYAMA and Chiyonofuji’s son Go Akimoto, welcomed customers at the Ginza Mitsukoshi store.

     

    Message from Go Akimoto, Chiyonofuji Project

    When KEITA asked me to collaborate with him, I instantly said “Yes!” Instead of the typical streetwear designs that have been made under the Chiyonofuji brand in the past, these couture-like designs use embroidery, which is KEITA MARUYAMA’s specialty. These products are like rare art pieces. I hope that tons of people will come visit the shop. 



    Message from Designer KEITA MARUYAMA

    Chiyonofuji was one of the biggest stars of the Showa era. Our generation was so enthralled by his incredible sumo skills, his figure, and his charm. We called him ‘The Wolf,’ and he inspired us. I’m so happy to be able to collaborate like this after all these years. I think everything turned out wonderfully, and the embroidery is top-notch.
