TOKYO — Kate Spade New York is opening the doors of a new international flagship in Ginza here, hoping to capitalize on its fast-growing business in Japan and propel future expansion elsewhere in Asia.
Craig Leavitt, chief executive officer of Kate Spade & Co., described the store as the “crowning achievement” for the brand’s 18-year-old business in Japan. Citing a 26 percent surge in fourth-quarter comps for the company in Japan, Leavitt said the country continues to perform very strongly.
