TEXASTOKYO TOKYOTEXAS - 2006

FREECITYsupershop Malibu, CA

Traveling from Texas to Tokyo, we went to a show at the Mori Art Museum called Berlin Tokyo Tokyo Berlin. we became fascinated with places so far away from each other, but having so much in common. we started thinking about things that were in common with Texas and Tokyo - native American Indians and samurai, gold, simple dwellings, tipis and huts - golden became very important, creams and whites, reds.

We hand-screened and handmade a tipi with fresh cut bamboo which we then gold-leafed. Vintage beaded American Indian artifacts, jewelry and rugs, vintage cowboy boots, natural rocks, giant golden pyrite, geodes, amethysts and crystals were collected. Golden dreams sake with golden flakes and blueberry jam from Seilin’s Okura shop in Japan was in the presentation. Custom fragrance from L’oeil du Vert, one scent for Texas and one scent for Tokyo, was created.

The “sign” representing “Texas Tokyo” was used in different formulas and colorways. this graphic is in continued use today and part of FREECITY archives.
