License to Swill

You might have partied your guts out on the Fourth of July, but in Tokyo they celebrated Independence Day of a different kind—and probably with more restraint.

But no more, the shackles are off, and the fashion crowd flocked to the gardens of the Q.E.D. club to show their support. Pics by illustrator and Hint contributor Przemek Sobocki...

LV's Omotesando flagship was stuffed with Murakami-like toys, gadgets and a $33,000 handmade rug. Also on view was a special animation by Murakami, available only on Japanese mobile phone and, of course, YouTube...
