Food and Design

In Tokyo, we went to the 21_21 Design Sight Museum in the new Tokyo Midtown area - the exhibit on view was Chocolate. Fascinating idea with chocolate as everything from the medium to the inspiration for design (Unfortunately I was not allowed to take pictures). Issey Miyake designed a chocolate collection in his Pleats Please line specifically for the exhibition, and I splurged and got a chocolate layer cake tank dress. I wore it out to Mother's Day dinner at Bookbinder's in Philadelphia, and my outfit ended up matching our dessert, Bookbinder's famous strawberry shortcake!
