Popular Hong Kong boutique Kapok has unveiled its first Japan branch alongside a grand opening on October 8th. Starting as a single shop in Hong Kong by Arnault Castel, Kapok has grown exponentially now with stores in Tokyo, Singapore, Taiwan and 6 in Hong Kong. Occupying a 90 sqm. modern ground floor unit nestled on a Harajuku backstreet, the Tokyo flagship features a low-key aesthetic that is similar to other Kapok outposts. Exposed utility pipes that line the ceiling give the shop an industrial makeover, and suspended staircases that run along both windows serve as shelves for bags and accessories. The store carries an international roster of brands including Mismo (Denmark), Carré Royal (France), Sandqvist (Sweden) and Japan’s own The Pith.
