Ito Kish is back to renew and re-excite with a luxurious new collection for Ito Kish Season Five. Over a year since they first opened the doors to their discreet retail space on JP Rizal Avenue, this is the fifth edit of Kish’s home accessories, books, and dining ware.

Throughout the 20 years of Ito Kish, they have inspired Filipinos to transform their homes into beautiful sanctuaries. Their doors are open once again, creating a safe and one-of-a-kind experience for clients.

The new collection draws inspiration from cities that celebrate life, beginning with the neighborhood of Tokyo, where Kish personally curated a tight selection of vintage items from personal trips to the Japanese capital.

Everyday items like spinning tops, miso bowls, even fish scalers and letter openers become surprising and beautiful in the hands of Japanese craftsmen. Take home a piece of wabi-sabi, the Japanese art of slow living, with these discreetly beautiful items.

Next, Kish wanted to bring a breath of fresh air inspired by Mediterranean Italy. “I was inspired by the Italian people, their casual style and unique sophistication,” he says. “I wanted to celebrate that zest for life. Straight from the islands of Sicily, this selection of vases, bowls, and traditional Italian candleholders are perfect for adding some warmth to our monsoon season.”
