COMING SOON: Akira Isogawa. Known for his fusion of Asian tradition with Australian ease, #AkiraIsogawa is one of our country’s most loved and celebrated designers. From 15 December, a new exhibition at the #PowerhouseMuseum explores his career of more than 25 years, revealing the background, impulses and cultural influences that have contributed to the making of a fashion original.

This Samurai armour and horse tack joined the #MAAScollection in 1948. Unverified acquisition records state that the equipment dates from 1775 and belonged to Komu Kaemon, a samurai of the officer rank from the Bizen clan. It's a remarkably complete example of samurai equipment from the middle Edo period. You can see the influence the shape of the helmet had on the design of Darth Vader from Star Wars.

This three legged 'Gazelle' chair was made by Gordon Andrews in 1957. You can see it now at the #powerhousemuseum as part of #theidealhome, an exhibition exploring Australian experiences of home across the past 100 years.
