TOKYO — Coach is gearing up to open its ninth flagship store in Japan in a prominent location on Tokyo’s fashionable Omotesando Avenue. The store, designed by architectural firm OMA, anchors a new multipurpose building that will also be home to an Emporio Armani relocated from down the street, as well as stores for Three Dots and Nespresso.
“Omotesando is a key location relative to others for many reasons,” said Victor Luis, Coach Inc.’s president and chief commercial officer. “It is, after Ginza, the second tourist shopping destination in Tokyo, of course. Omotesando, together with the Aoyama area, attracts a very fashion-forward consumer. We haven’t had a presence there, so for us it was a key void to some extent, but we don’t see this as just filling the gap.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
