iii3 is the most directional of Urakashi’s select shops, catering to both men and women. The stark white space has the air of a commercial art gallery, and it boasts a label roster that is like an a-to-z of cult Japanese labels, including Dulcamara, whose ‘destroyed’ genderless pieces suggest a dystopian near future. Better known outside Japan, Hender Scheme made its name with natural leather renditions of classic sneaker silhouettes – and iii3 carries the brand’s more conceptual creations, such as vacuum-packed socks masquerading as condoms.
