Reykjavik, Iceland.
The capital of the country and the most northern capital in the world, with a population of 120,000 residents. A spectacular landscape and nature at its finest! Here, captured by #ChampFam @livincoolin #ChampIssue8. (Photo: #EmanueleDAngelo) #champ_travel #champ_iceland #champ_reykjavik

Naoshima, Japan.
The sculptor room of American artist #WalterdeMaria in our aforementioned #ChichuMuseum on #Naoshima in Shikoku, Japan. Titled, ‘Time / Timeless / No Time’ 2004, the site-specific artwork changes by moment, depending on the position of the sun making the light and grandeur of space a truly experiential artwork. Furthermore complimented by the bold architecture of renowned #TadaoAndo. (Photo: Michael Kellough, Benesse) #champ_japan #champ_travel #champ_naoshima

CHAMP TRAVEL

Tokyo, Japan.
#NezuMuseum, an absolutely remarkable space in the heart of Aoyama, housing the private collection of #NezuKaichiro amongst a beautiful traditional Japanese zen garden, and the architecture of #KengoKuma. Formerly known as the Nezu Institute of Fine Arts built in 1940 and renovated in 2009. The bamboo entrance by Kuma, is to reflect a ‘roji’ approach to a tea room, where visitors adjust their mood before they enter the museum. #champ_travel #champ_japan #champ_tokyo

London, UK.
#RoseBakery, located on the top floor of #ReiKawakubo’s @doverstreetmarketlondon - a retail concept store based in London’s West, housing the most interesting and forward-thinking designers of our time. The equally remarkable cafe was created originally in Paris in 2002, by Anglo-French couple Rose and Jean-Charles Carrarini (a quiche expert). Come try one of their delicious salads, quiches or cake and coffee – and in summer, grab a spot in the sun-filled balcony, overlooking classic London rooftops. One of our most favourite places to be. a #Champ_Stockist too! #doverstreetmarket #dsml #champ_travel #champ_london #champ_uk
