2Line Harajuku Shop Closing
Sad news from Meiji Dori in Harajuku – the 2Line men’s select shop is closing down at the end of this month. I was walking in the area and I noticed that their sign said in big bright letters “Closing Sale” (actually it says “Close Sale”, but close enough). This is a Harajuku select shop that carries shoes and clothing from a lot of cool Japanese fashion brands. They have had a store at that location in Harajuku for as long as I can remember (not that my memory goes back more than a few years).
2Line Harajuku is a stockist for the following Japanese and international brands (and a lot more): Julius, Kris Van Assche, Bagatto, Alexander Hotto, Prima Base, Buttero, ATO (Ato Matsumoto), Officine Creative, Mark & Lona, Cassaves, Roberto Collina, Marco Tagliaferri, Rosasen, Lyle & Scott, Unity, Sobek, Claudio Orciani, Gravevault, Gender, Pierre Hardy, Cesare Paciotti, Les Guriffe Sneakers, D&G, etc. They carry shoes, bags, shirts, pants, jeans, belts, jackets, and just about everything else you can think of.
The good news, if you want to look at the bright side, is that 2Line’s web shop will remain open. The even better news is that they are having a big sale to clean out the inventory of the Harajuku shop before it closes. So, if you want to get some good discounts on cool Japanese brand clothing, now might be the time to check out 2Line.
Here are a couple of photos of the shop and the sign saying it’s closing at the end of November 2008:
