Chris Matsumura Worlds End shop Vivienne Westwood

For the first post of 2017 (Happy New Year) I was lucky to catch the visit of Japanese TV & Radio presenter Chris Matsumura to the Worlds End shop.
Here he is kindly modelling the Bondage Shirt that he bought today.
It is the first time that he has been in the shop & he said that the shops interior reminded him of Alice in Wonderland.
Although he of course is based in Japan (he’s flying back there later tonight), Chris’s father was a diplomat & Chris lived abroad a lot when he was young, being born in The Hague & spending 3-4 years at a Primary School in Wimbledon here in London.
Having done many varied things in his media career, Chris has now become a respected music critic & reviewer, work that he really enjoys. He has just covered the latest Rolling Stones album & in 2 weeks he will be interviewing Bryan Adams. He also writes about all the top Japanese musicians such as Tatsuro Yamashita.
Thank you Chris & lots of luck for the coming year.
