Lately there have been a lot of exciting news going on for one of our artists, Lactose Intoler-Art. Recently, a Lactose Intoler-Art tote bag design was featured in two different issues of FRUITS magazine. FRUITS is a street fashion magazine based in Japan that captures photographs of unique people on the streets there. The tote bag was worn by Tavuchi, the owner of the famous “Spank!” used clothing shops.
After sending a “Spank!” inspired necklace to Tavuchi, she was happy to walk the streets of Harajuku sporting it, and be photographed by street fashion photographers around Tokyo. Tokyo Fashion (www.tokyofashion.com) was one of the first to take pictures of Tavuchi, and to post it online featuring Tavuchi’s unique style and Lactose Intoler-Art’s new online store.
In the meantime, Lactose Intoler-Art continues to update us with new art and vintage items to his online shops, and is creating new work as well. In fact, this new illustration has never been seen before, and Made With Japan will be the first to show it. The illustration is inspired by recent trends in Tokyo, including high platform shoes, sheer skirts, and the mixing of bold patterns. Lactose Intoler-Art is currently donating work through Art Drive Japan, Made with Japan’s effort to support Japan after the earthquake of 3.11 as well as other various charities. Future plans for the brand is to continue creating new work, and to go back to Tokyo later this year.
