TOKYO — Salvatore Ferragamo launched its newest fragrance, Incanto Amity, at a pop-up store in Tokyo on Tuesday. The store, located in a shopping complex at the intersection where upscale Omotesando meets quirky Harajuku, will be open through April 17, during which time it will be the only place in the world where the perfume will be sold.
Rollout will then continue throughout Asia, wrapping up in China in July and reaching a total of about 4,000 to 5,000 doors.
The opening event for the pop-up included a short performance by two child ballerinas who were accompanied by two women playing in unison on miniature grand pianos. The store is decorated to match the fragrance’s bottle, with flower and hummingbird motifs in pastel hues of green, pink and yellow.
Incanto Amity is a fresh, citrusy fragrance with top notes of Satsuma mandarin orange and Yubari melon, two Japanese fruits. Middle notes of star jasmine and white peach, and base notes of white cedar wood and white musk round out the scent.
Ferragamo Parfums chief executive officer Luciano Bertinelli said the launch of Incanto Amity in Japan was a response to that market’s enthusiasm for the Incanto line in general, with many consumers collecting the assorted fragrances. “The vivacity, creativity and values that [Incanto] represents are especially appreciated by a young customer seeking ‘kawaii’ objects with a touch of extravagance,” he said.
Bertinelli declined to discuss sales projections for the eau de toilette, but industry sources said the fragrance could bring in 10 million euros in retail sales after a year on the shelf.
Prices are set at 6,000 yen for a 30-ml. bottle, 9,000 yen for a 50-ml. bottle and 12,400 yen for a 100-ml. bottle of the scent, or about $58, $87 and $119 respectively at current exchange.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
