Superflat First Love by Takashi Murakami for Louis Vuitton

I've always been a fan of "manga," or as its sometimes referred to as, japanimation.  I've also always been fond of anything, well pretty much anything Louis Vuitton has made in its long and illustrious history.  So today, I pay hommage to this HOUSE OF LUXURY with this video tribute by Takashi Murakami entitled Superflat First Love

Subsequently, while we are on the subject of being ultimately cool or just plane japanacool let's take note of  Kyoichi Tsuzuki.  He focuses his photography on "Happy Victims."

Excerpt from Culture 24:
An instructor at Bunka Fashion College, nicknamed "Maestro Margiela" and one of the designer Martin Margiela’s biggest fans, is crouched on the floor behind a uniform row of shoes and beneath racks of pressed shirts. His room is immaculately tidy.
The caption says he’d rather eat out than risk infusing his clothes with cooking smells so he keeps only eardrops in the refrigerator and has never used the cooker.
Happy Victims is a photo documentary that takes Tsuzuki back to his journalistic roots.
