A Visit to Atelier Boz


This was my ride: The Nozomi Super Express N700 Bullet Train. It’s set to arrive in Nagoya station after a 1-hour, 40 minute ride from Tokyo, which was about 170 miles away. A short taxi ride from the station and I arrived at popular Japanese company, Atelier Boz. The brand shop is located on the fifth floor of the SakaeNOVA building. I am to meet Shiva, the Brand Manager and Head of Operations of Atelier Boz.



“Atelier Boz specializes in classical and elegant clothing, displaying refined and pure beauty.

  • No outfit can be complete without accessories, and Atelier Boz highly encourages this. Pictured here is the Frandeer Dress with a Rosary pendant chain.


The Melec Blouse, as shown above, advertises the label’s attention to detail. The white corsage enhances the look even more.


Shiva’s footwear



The outfit on display is a special collaboration with a Japanese Visual Kei band called AvelCain. Fabulous.


After two hours, we said our goodbyes and I was on my way to catch the bullet train back to Tokyo for another meeting.
A big thank you to TaeYeon for translating.

    Those boots are amazing!!!!! Shiva-san is such an inspiration to me and I was always curious to see what the inside of one of her shops look like!! I can’t wait to visit her store when I travel to Japan one day.
