The French fashion brand and electronic record label Kitsune is coming to Tokyo next month. From February 11th through March 7th 2010, Kitsune will have a popup shop inside of Montoak on Omotesando Dori in Harajuku. The shop will feature both music and fashion items – including several Made in Japan items that will be available exclusively at the Tokyo shop.
Rather than try to explain all that’s going on during the run of the popup shop, here’s the info on the “Boutique Kitsune” project directly from Kitsune themselves:
BOUTIQUE KITSUNÉ is an international project which tours around various cities worldwide, identifying the most interesting and avant-garde places, and then collaborating on the creation of a temporary shop and a series of events around it.
The key idea behind the store is to introduce Kitsuné’s universe, which is not only made of their music, for which they have an enormous following, but also of the more subtle and high class world of Kitsuné fashion collections, graphics and special productions.
In Tokyo, the men’s and lady’s SS10 Kitsuné Golf Club collection will be on display, along with items created exclusively for BOUTIQUE KITSUNE TOKYO, collectively entitled “Impression of Nippon from Kitsuné” These limited items were created in Japan with Japanese fabrics, using the same philosophy as main collection. For example, the limited edition shoes are made by famous factory Moonstar in Fukuoka, the knits in Gosen/Niigata, and the canvas bag in Kurashiki/Okayama. Also, there will be commemorative tee shirts, a key ring, a special Kitsuné Maison CD box, and emblems which are all exclusive for BOUTIQUE KITSUNE TOKYO.
And here are pictures of a few of the items that will be offered at the upcoming Tokyo shop:
