Even among the shopping chaos that is Harajuku's Laforet, this store dealing in 'cutting-edge' fashion stands out from the rest. The neon lighting inside lends a quirky glow to styles from up-and-coming and edgy designers like Hyein Seo, Astrid Andersen and Shaun Samson. They also host a range of items from popular designer collabs including the coveted Kanye West and Adidas Yeezy collection. In celebration of GR8’s 12th anniversary, the shop’s exterior received a makeover in the form of a Japanese garden complete with a serene pond, traditional stone lanterns and bonsai trees. A surprising contrast to the loud and busy shopping space indoors.
