Although well-established in Japan for many years, Paul Smith lacked a notable presence in Osaka, the country’s second largest city. Well, that was yesterday. Finding a premium location smack on Mido-suji dori, a bustling tree-lined artery in the heart of the city, the British luxury brand rubs shoulders with peers from the industry, such as Hermès, Commes des Garçons and Louis Vuitton. The Paul Smith flagship store occupies a 213 sqm. (2,293 sq.ft.) on the ground floor of a 12-storey office building and the façade has been especially modified and now features faux glazed blue bricks and both a doorway and windows framed by shiny green metal.

When photographer Kentaro Takahashi lost his maternal grandfather, he decided to start documenting his paternal grandparents who he had never kept in regular contact with. Delving into his family’s history and, in turn, that of Japan throughout the 20th Century, the resulting work is a shining example of the value of family photography.

With an organic feel, it's still ultimately sophisticated—and is safe for microwaves and dishwashers. There are various cups, plates and accessories from the Nagasaki-based brand available too.
