A particularly modern, bright and inviting department store, Hankyu offers many popular and familiar brand names, GAP, DKNY, Kenzo, Miyake, Cerruti and Nicole Farhi to name a few. The men's collection is just as good as the women's and the English floor guide is not only comprehensible, but lists everything by brand name. The Yurakucho branch also has a second H2 Sukiyabashi building on the next block (beside the Sony building), which houses more fashion and household goods plus HMV. Shopping is made refreshingly easy here.
Cabane De Zucca, a Tokyo-based fashion house, has been extremely successful since its inception over twenty years ago. It specializes in loose, comfortable clothes with a strong style aesthetic and this combination of comfort and fashion attracts a loyal base of fans. This flagship store is beautifully designed - there is even an upstairs cafe and bookstore - and as it sits just off the main shopping street, there is a more relaxed atmosphere.
At Prada's flagship store in Aoyama, the discerning Prada customer will be able to see designs unique to Japan, like kimono-style menswear. Apart from the garments, the store itself is popular for its striking architectural design. Housed in a stunning six-story glass building, it is a diamond-shaped monolith that stands out in the heart of the city.
Definitely aimed towards wealthy clientele, this department store competes with its more traditional predecessors with grandeur. Everything is carefully selected, meticulously displayed and very, very expensive. It does not stock anything typically Japanese, but does give you an interesting view of exclusive European style. Combined with an elegant café and an even more refined restaurant, Anniversaire was built to impress, and it certainly does.
Fun, casual, relaxed clothing - that's what you can expect from Hollywood Ranch Market, who have had a very successful thirty years (and counting!) in business. Their brand of casual chic - lots of cotton, neon, and their own line of denim - has great appeal for Tokyo hipsters; eco-friendly items are now available.
