I can’t believe I’m writing the November edition of the site news already! Where did it go?! Rather than losing a month in some kind of drunken haze (alas), we’ve been busier then ever – I didn’t think it was possible, honestly. But hey, why aim low, right? If you’re achieving your goals, then the goals are too easy, as someone else once said.

Apocalypse Now: After re-watching all three Mad Max films a little while ago, both Samuel & I have been on a real apocalyptic-punk kick… and we’re not the only ones! Take a look at the wonderful creations of Yasuyuki Ishii, and think of a dystopian future – if you dare!

Ink Royalty: As tattoo lovers, we couldn’t pass up the chance to attend Daikanyama’s King of Tattoo event in October – take a look at the post, and don’t forget our tattoo tag either… We’ve just got tickets for our next tattoo convention in January!

Fashion Week: The vast majority of our Japan fashion Week coverage is now up; for easy navigation just click on the tag! We’re still featuring a ton of designers that we discovered at Fashion Week, so keep your eyes open…

Mad Hatters: Cabbages, mice and top hats? It can only be the weird & wonderful Barairo no Boushi!

Woof Woof!: From re-made Prada boots to prophylactic-inlaid jackets, Harajuku’s Dog just has to be seen. End of.

Sweet as Sugar: Rebecca fawns over Candy, and most probably makes a fool of herself (I can get away with writing in the third person, right?)

Call Me: Samuel’s been a busy bee updating with his ever-evolving style (see the Private Number tag) – thanks to the lovely Trashtastika of The Fashionate Traveller (excellent blog!) for her comparison of Samuel to both Jarvis Cocker & Brett from Suede!

Direction Forthcoming: Our fabulous brand directory has an A to Z of all the Japanese fashion brands we’re written about in the seven months that Tokyo Telephone has been around – phew!

Where’s…?: Looking for that special shop? Head on over to our Tokyo shopping map and click around the best interactive map there is!

Links and Other Sites: We’re always on the look out for interesting and fabulous blogs & sites to add to our phone book – leave us a comment or drop us a line at hello @ tokyotelephone.com if you’d like to be added to our ever-growing list. Content from Tokyo Telephone is also available on flickr, livejournal and twitter too – if you like what we do, the spread the word with the handy Talking Telephone links at the bottom of each article! We’re also featured on Glam UK‘s fashion channel – a great way to see what’s going on on the rest of the network!

I’m almost hoping December will be a little slower… nah, no way!

    Congrats on all you’ve achieved!! I’ve really been enjoying the past month’s posts and look forward to what you’ve got in store for us in December 🙂 Hopefully we can bump into each other in Tokyo one day – maybe next fashion week?

    Thank you so much! I’ve also been really enjoying seeing your site evolve too 🙂

    Yeah, that would be great! We should get Carmina & Valerie involved too; Japanese fashion bloggers unite!
