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.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
