The full color publication highlights many of the intricately fashioned silver, gold and leather pieces that have been created by legendary jewelry crafter, Goro Takahashi.

Long queues that result in waiting times of several hours are a daily occurrence, attesting to the high regard, respect and lust that Takahashi’s work creates amongst its fans. His eagle and feather designs, learned and honed over many years of living with Navajo Indians, became synonymous with the Harajuku boom and are often seen adorning the necks of major names in the industry, with fragment design’s Hiroshi Fujiwara perhaps the biggest advocate.
