Band of Outsiders Opens First Store in Tokyo

Band of Outsiders is opening its first retail store in Tokyo tomorrow, October 12. Built by architectural studio, LOT-EK, the brand new three-story standalone was designed around the concept of being “modular, moveable, and staying alive.” In the center of the first floor stands a functional steel sculpture called “The Monster,” whose 28 moving arms connect to every display case, rack, fitting room and even the cash register, allowing the interior to constantly change. The exterior also changes, covered in printable mesh fabric that will be replaced every season. Along with Band of Outsiders’ men’s and women’s collections, the store will stock products exclusive to the location like a pair of shoes made in collaboration with Vans Japan. The store, however, is not without its founding California flair: the fitting rooms are covered in murals of the West Coast state and complementary Californian music.
