H&M Harajuku Opening Next Weekend
H&M Harajuku is coming! Next Saturday, November 8, 2008, the new H&M shop in Harajuku will open its doors. We expect long lines and a big party atmosphere on opening day, so TokyoFashion.com will try to get some photos. For now, they’ve got signs and billboards up on the building and around Harajuku.
The new H and M building itself is pretty cool and very tall, though we don’t know yet how many of the floors are open to the public. The company calls the new Harajuku location the “Ice Cubes Building” and the upper floors look like ice cubes stacked on top of each other. It’s hard to appreciate the building from up close, but from a distance, looking down from areas around Harajuku Station, it looks pretty cool.
Here are some pics from the week before the opening:
