TOKYO — One of Japan’s best-known fashion brands has set its sights on a new tomorrow with a distribution deal covering the U.S., the U.K. and Hong Kong. The project marks the first international venture for Tomorrowland since the late Eighties.
Hiroyuki Sasaki founded Tomorrowland in 1978, and, since then, the company has grown to include a network of 160 stores across Japan and a large portfolio of its own brands as well as partnerships with major international labels such as Isabel Marant and Dries van Noten. And starting this fall, Tomorrowland’s men’s line will be available at Barneys New York in the U.S., Selfridges in the U.K., Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and online at Mr Porter. International distribution will be handled by Montreal-based Want Agency, which also holds North American distribution rights for brands such as Maison Kitsuné and Arc’teryx Veilance.
