Belstaff opens new flagship store in Tokyo at Ginza Six
Located within the new ‘Ginza Six’ luxury complex, the new Belstaff store in Tokyo covers 100 sqm making it the brand’s second biggest retail space in Asia after Macau. It was launched by global ambassador and Hollywood A-lister Liv Tyler, who starred in a short Belstaff film last year and co-designed two collections for Belstaff alongside creative director Delphine Ninous.
The British brand said the opening of the Tokyo flagship showcases its development in Japan and its continued international expansion and dedication to retail. Belstaff launched in the Japanese market in 2016 with retail spaces opened in Matsuzakaya Nagoya, Isetan Tokyo and Kobe.
The new store holds the first offering of the women’s line in Tokyo and the first complete offering of menswear. Additionally, it offers an exclusive ‘Ginza Capsule’ collection of lighter weight pieces and the first eyewear collection from the brand.
“Ginza Six, our fourth opening in Japan, shows our fast and strategic expansion in this important market. The Japanese influence on fashion and style can be felt globally, which is why we selected this country as a key pillar market for Belstaff. The Japanese appreciation and appetite for modern heritage is key to our success here,” said CEO Gavin Haig.
The flagship launches in the same month Belstaff exhibits its first Archive exhibition, ‘Hollywood Legends’ in the Daikanyama Tsutaya bookstore. Additionally, the brand teamed up with Japanese label Sophnet earlier this year to launch a street style-influenced collection.
