Situated in Meguro, south of Shibuya, Claska is one of our favorite hotels in Tokyo. A modern, minimal yet comfortable space, each of its 20 rooms is uniquely designed. The hotel also features a restaurant, lifestyle shop and an adjacent art gallery. A popular spot with discerning travelers, booking early is advised.

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Kathleen Whitaker for Apiece Apart

 

We have long admired Maggie Gyllenhaal for her bold acting roles and her activisim. We were honored to see her wearing Kathleen Whitaker jewelry for her recent interview with Apiece Apart, where she discusses balancing
family with work, and how to be an outspoken yet thoughtful advocate for rights that matter.
