CHIE KUNISHIMA- HEADPORTER - On a recent trip to Japan, I sat down with Chie Kunishima, who is the president of edgy design brand HEAD PORTER.  Head Porter is based in Harajuku and was originally the cool cousin of the classic PORTER urban hand bag and luggage brand.  The brainchild of designer Hiroshi Fujiwara, Katsuyuki Yoshida (PORTER), Susumu Hasegawa, Kou Kuwahata and Chie.  The brand is now evolving into a full fledged fashion line with clothing, accessories and bags.  In her cozy, dog filled design studio she showed me some of her cool designs. - LIPSTiCK TrACeZ
