For years now, luxury hotel group Six Senses has impressed upon travelers the positive effects of adhering, honestly, to the values of the destinations they visit. This is undeniably evident in Bhutan, the mystifying, mountainous nation in South Asia, where Gross National Happiness factors into the daily lives of its population. Set high in the Eastern Himalayas, landlocked between India and China, Bhutan’s natural beauty and its mythological history appeal to many who dream of remote travel—but several roadblocks prevent rampant tourism. This has been to the benefit of the Buddhist nation. In building blockades, the Bhutanese have preserved their culture and lands for dedicated, respectful and patient visitors.

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.
