We follow fashion enthusiast Yenny Then as she journeys through Tokyo and journals her experience at the Burberry: The Cape Reimagined exhibition, which features elaborate couture capes that hearken to the brand’s history.
I don my monochromatic Burberry outfit, pile my hair in an insouciant top-knot, and celebrate the opening of the Burberry: The Cape Reimagined exhibition, in Omotesando, Tokyo.
(Left to right) So many Instagrammable spots at the uber-trendy ryokan-style boutique hotel, Hoshinoya Tokyo; My husband Desmond is a great #instagramhusband; Trying to contain my excitement while getting my face prepped for the big night

(Left to right) The Embroidered Wing Cape is truly showstopping with layers of embroidered sequins on silk emulating a bird’s wings; The magic is in the details at Burberry, as seen in these capes crafted from delicate lace and macrame, and the balls of yarn knitted together like a modern sculpture
(Left to right) I simply cannot visit Burberry’s flagship store in Omotesando and not try on its signature trench! I am quite smitten by this modern update on the classic trench; Dinner at Hoshinoya is a sensory experience of texture, colour and form; The lush, baroque-like setting of the Ukai‑Tei restaurant is (almost) as impressive as the food
(Left to right) Pretending to be distracted when all I really want to do is buy everything!; When you need to fit into your outfit but the temptation is strong
