SHŌTŌ and ĀKĒDO: Sneak Peek


It’s been a little while, but we’re delighted to share some sneak peeks at not one but two of our current projects: SHŌTŌ and ĀKĒDO.

SHŌTŌ and ĀKĒDO are the latest Japanese inspired, high-energy restaurant and nightlife concepts from globally renowned restaurateur, Arjun Waney O.B.E. (ZUMA, ROKA, COYA, La Petite Maison & The Arts Club) and protégé Managing Partner, Arman Naqi.

SHŌTŌ, a restaurant, bar, lounge, and terrace, will offer contemporary Japanese cuisine in the heart of the United States’ capital. ĀKĒDO, a feel-good Japanese fast-casual, will encourage diners to eat, drink and play in relaxed surroundings, serving a selection of snacks, sandos, buns and ramen.

We have designed two very unique collections for two very unique venues. The result is a combination of bespoke design inspired by the catwalks, married with items from our Readywear range. We have designed and developed bespoke digital prints and made full use of both venues’ vibrant and graphic branding, designed by London agency Spinach.

We’ll be sharing the full collections very soon, but in the meantime, here are some sneak peeks at elements in the collection. We hope you like!
