Loveless Shop Tokyo

Tokyo is the retail capital of the galaxy, a megapolis-as-mall whose incomprehensible volume and variety of stores and products will exhaust even the most depraved shopaholic. What distinguishes many of Tokyo’s luxury brand flagships is superstar architecture.

To Shop

Prada

The Prada ‘epicenter’, designed by Herzog and de Meuron in Tokyo’s ultra-chic Aoyama neighborhood is one of the most impressive superstar architecture of the city.

JP Tod's

Located on Omotesando boulevard, the Champs-Elysees of Tokyo, the gorgeous multi-storey boutique for JP Tod’s is another highlight.

Hermès

The translucent glass façade of Renzo Piano’s Hermès in Ginza allows the building to glow from within at night like a Japanese lantern.

Tokyu Hands

This innovative boutique is an encyclopedic purveyor of hardware, appliances and materials for homeowners and hobbyists as well as sundries (chopsticks, curtains) for the everyman; more manageable for tourist shoppers is their new Ginza Hands location.

Postalco

Postalco’s unique, top-quality notebooks, stationary, wallets and bags are hidden on the second floor of an anonymous Kyobashi office building, but well worth a visit.

Kiddyland

For children of any age or nationality, Kiddyland is possibly the world’s most fun toy store; opened in 1946, its six floors are bursting with toys not available anywhere else.

Muji Yurakucho

No Muji fan should miss the celebrated brand’s flagship, which features exclusive products, a Muji café and even low-cost bicycle rentals.

Loveless

The Colette of Tokyo carries over 100 progressive brands and designers. Be sure to visit the Darkside Bar in the basement, where customers enjoy free drinks while perusing the racks in the vampire-like den.

Colour By Numbers

As Loveless’ sister store, Colour by Numbers offers a more futuristic ambience – fluorescent lights, white marble floors, tricked-out 80s boom boxes, and beautifully tailored pieces from indie Japanese design darlings.

Laforet

The La Foret boutique tower is ground zero for ‘Harajuku girl’ fashion, but more useful for people-watching than purchases.

Local fashion insiders head to the more subdued but equally stylish Daikanyama, a leafy low-rise neighborhood chock-full of quirky boutiques and sidewalk cafes. Big names have planted their Tokyo outposts here alongside the indie shops, including Vivienne Tam, Paul Smith, and Martin Margiela.

Shimokitazawa

For second-hand clothing, vintage 70s items and anime toys and record shops, locals flock to trendy Shimokitazawa, the most sought-after neighbourhood for young Tokyoite hipsters.
