celine / fuglen

fuglen 1 fuglen 2 fuglen 3 first, meet my new-old celine. it's an all brown medium shopper without the swirlies in big chunky thick ass leather. lucious. thrift-shopping in tokyo is a big thing. apart from numerous online second-hand shopping sites ( like BRANDEAR & RAKUTEN ), there are also too many shops out here that sells an awesomely curated selection of precious items, like hermes haut a courroies ( think green leather + canvas ), chanel tweed jackets, & tricker's country boots. So i took my shopper out for the first spin & went to this cafe that kaz has been recommending - the FUGLEN. coffee beans here are picked in africa, roasted in norway & then flown to tokyo to be squeezed in an aeropress ( the fast-brew filter gizmo ). an uber coiffed kenji kojima with a great tan & a sexy moustache made me an iced shaken coffee which was heavenly, probably because norway’s roasts are the lightest in the world & the most fruity also. originally from downtown oslo, this coffee house turns into a cocktail bar after the sun sets. and if you are a fan for the mid-century norwegian designs of dark woods & retro colors, just pay the price & take it home with you cos everything here is for sale, even the wallpaper! oh and fuglen means “the bird”
