TOKYO — Thom Browne is about to open his first freestanding store outside the U.S., appropriately enough in the home country of his label’s majority shareholder, Cross Co.
The brand’s Tokyo flagship, which is set to open its doors on Saturday, is located in the city’s fashionable Aoyama district, where its neighbors include Undercover, Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade and Prada. The space Browne is taking over was formerly occupied by the Tokyo branch of 10 Corso Como. A recently opened Acne store makes its home in the other half.
"You start one way as a baby, but why shouldn't you be able to choose your own path as opposed to culturally people telling you which way to go?" - Thom Browne at his men's spring 2018 show, where he celebrated gender fluidity. #pfw #wwdmens (📷: @delphineachard)
"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)
