Streetwear and sneaker emporium Kith has finally landed a flagship store in Tokyo inside Shibuya’s Miyashita Park complex. The New York-based brand teamed up with Snarkitecture, the design studio co-founded by American artist Daniel Arsham, to create the shop space, and it sure is a stunner.
The aesthetic is reminiscent of Kith stores in the United States, featuring clean slates of marble, stainless steel and glass. The show-stopping ceiling is a highlight, with its installation of white Nike Air Force 1 sneakers lined up along the vaulted archway. The merchandise displays are equally pleasing to the eye, with a commanding pillar of sneakers in one room and curated rows of clothing and accessories meticulously lined up in the other.
Those with a keen eye may recognise Arsham’s signature eroded artwork used on the Kith sign. The same clean colours and style can also be found at Kith Treats on the second floor, a cereal and ice cream dessert bar.
