Union is opening a new location in Tokyo, 27 years after the Los Angeles based streetwear store opened its last retail space. The new location will include exclusive collaborations with KAWS, Alyx and OAMC.
The store is set to open in April and will span 2,000-square-feet in Tokyo’s Shibuya neighborhood. Chris Gibbs, owner of the luxury streetwear store, has a long-held fascination with Japanese brands such as BAPE, Visvim, Hender Scheme and WTAPS. He also played a leading role in introducing these labels to the U.S., making Tokyo an obvious choice for the store’s next location.
Speaking with Business of Fashion, Gibbs said: “The Japanese consumer, more than anyone else on earth, wants to know the story behind the fashion and they're looking at how garments are constructed… they appreciate the great pride we take in how we edit our selection at the store.”
