Hold on to your crossbodies this is going to be a wild ride! Large fanciful boats regularly cover the waters of Hong Kong for dragon boat racing. A popular local sport, with an estimated 30,000 active paddlers, dragon boat racing is kind of a big deal. To celebrate, this June, Hong Kong hosted its annual international Dragon Boat Festival culminating with the Stanley International Dragon Boat Championship. Attended by 200 of the world’s top dragon boat teams and thousands of spectators, this dance of dragons had dragon boats race to the beat of drums with strong-armed paddlers furiously paddling towards the finish line.dragon2


The energy of the crowd and the sighting of popular animated characters racing with a boat team made this amazing event not to be missed. Did we mention that you have to eat the customary food zongi for the festival? The only way we can describe it? A yummy ball of sticky rice goodness.dragon 5

Be sure to grab that Voyager Backpack next year and head on over. Or better yet grab a paddle and compete—we’ll be over by the sticky rice!

tokidoki for LeSportsac lovers old and new lined up at the LeSportsac boutique in Ala Moana Center and at the LeSportsac shop in DFS Galleria to chat with Legno about the criminally cute and imaginative world of tokidoki. Fans received signed special limited edition posters featuring one of collection’s prints and Palette, a never before seen character created by Legno exclusively for the collection. With each purchase, shoppers received fun signature tokidoki temporary tattoo booklets and everyone had the opportunity to take a few selfies with a life-sized statue of Palette. Shoppers at DFS Galleria even got to take home custom Palette shaped fans because Hawaii is just too wonderfully warm!

In Japan, the LeSportsac Omotesando store was transformed into a huge tokidoki pop-up store. Legno’s world and the new collection were visually brought to life with the integration of his most signature tokidoki products. tokidoki items were also available for purchase at the LeSportsac Ginza store along with the tokidoki for LeSportsac collection. Legno met with fans at both locations for photos and custom signings.

Legno finally returned stateside to his home base, Los Angeles, and made his way to the last stop of his tour, LeSportsac Santa Monica Place. Locals began a line even before the store opened to meet with Legno. The celebration included a DJ, incredible tokidoki gifts for shoppers, and even more photos and signings. Thankfully Legno made it home and was able to take a break from all of his autographing to go back to drawing more of the amazing world of tokidoki.
