Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Here are some of the things that made my day this week:

Awesome trailer for Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War Of The Underworld from Takashi Miike

Really interesting Panasonic technology for data transfer, is it more than a less obvious QRcode in terms of the data that it contains?

Stussy have done a really good collaboration with Japanese brand Sophnet which dropped this week

SoftBank seem to have moved away from their kooky ‘family’ adverts using modern samurai Isao Machii cuts many objects with ”Iaido” sword strokes

The BBC have a series of programmes on handmade products that shows how an item is made from start to finish by a craftsman. The programmes have no music or voiceover. I noticed that Porter Tokyo had taken a similar approach demonstrating how their bags are made
