In 2011 Japanese brand WTAPS opened its new flagship store in Shibuya, Tokyo. The GIP (Guerilla The Incubation Period) Store closely follows the base principles of the brand. The interior is heavily military inspired, both on the interior and the exterior. Next to WTAPS, the store also carries the other collection by creative director Tetsu Nishiyama, entitled FORTY PERCENTS AGAINST RIGHTS. While WTAPS has been hanging in HOODS stores next to Neighborhood, the GIP store for the first time 100% expresses the vision of the brand. Beautiful details include custom furniture, as well as GIP store bikes and scooters parked in front of the shop.
