I meant womens館 and mens館 both.
but it must be the one saying "MEN'S館" for you Arthur.

I forgot to say the last shipment from C diem is due at ecru the week after next.
boots in new color, dirty white,
jacket (lapelled) in the fabric called trio which used to be exclusively for Linea,
steel wool pants, military wool pants, etc.
all the highlights for this fall will bring up the rear when you are there.

You all know your stuff, so I don't have much to add...for guys...just to say that:

Loveless also carries a lot of vintage...
Abahouse may be good for guys; it's on Meiji Dori btwn Shibuya and Harajuku...
There' another big men's store on the right side of the same street...they carry Haute and new designers and all sorts of good stuff...I forgot the name right now though...(>_<)..
I agree w/Runner about United Arrows...
You'd also want to check out Parco in Shibuya, they carry a lot of Japanese brands...
Also nearby, Movida has Via Bus Stop where they sometimes carry a few new Japanese brands...along with Chalayan, McQueen, Anne V. Hash, etc.

Have fun! (^.^)

there are far too many designer brands to ginza to list them all out...pretty much most designer brands that are international would be sold there.... what kind of stuff are you into?

Check out a brand called Julius - it's very Carpe Diem, I think. And bring me back some stuff while you are at it

Omote-sando Hills topping-off ceremony
An Omote-sando landmark for the next generation

A topping-off ceremony was recently held for Omote-sando Hills (Jingumae 4-Chome Urban Redevelopment Project), a project backed by the Jingumae 4-Chome Urban Redevelopment Association (Chairman: Mr. Toru Ishii).

(* Topping-off refers to the stage of construction in which the framework of the building is almost completed. For concrete buildings and steel-frame buildings, it refers to the stage in which the building frame is completed.)

This is the project involving the reconstruction of the Dojunkai Aoyama Apartment complex - a well-known landmark at Omote-sando, which is one of Tokyo's most prominent and fanciest shopping area. The development site, which lies in the center of Omote-sando between the Omote-sando Subway Station and Meiji Shrine, occupies approximately 1.2 hectares. With six floors above ground and six below, Omote-sando Hills will form a multipurpose complex with a total floor area of 33,916 square meters, comprising commercial facilities, residences, and parking, and is slated for completion in January 2006. The project, which was designed by the world-renowned architect Tadao Ando, takes into account Omotesando's historical landscape and surroundings. Efficient use of underground space have kept the building's height lower, maintaining harmony with a row of zelkova trees. The rooftop will be planted with lush greenery, creating a greenscape extending to the row of zelkova trees.

While seeking to create a facility to serve as a new landmark for the next generation, we plan to bequeath the existing landscape to the next generation by reproducing part of the much-cherished walls of the Dojunkai Aoyama Apartments.

[Omote-sando Hills Overview]
Project name: Jingumae 4-Chome Urban Redevelopment Project
Location: Jingumae 4-Chome, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
Development area: Approx. 1.2 hectares
Site area: 6,051.36 m2
Total floor area: 33,916.13 m2 (including parking)
Number of floors: Six above ground, six below ground
Maximum height: 23.3 m
Structure: Steel-framed reinforced concrete structure; steel-reinforced concrete structure and steel-framed concrete structure in some sections
Purposes: Retail, apartment complex, parking, etc.
Parking: 20 spaces for residential use and 196 spaces for retail use
Design: Tadao Ando Architect & Associates, Mori Building joint design entity
Developer: Jingumae 4-Chome Urban Redevelopment Association
Date of completion: January 2006 (planned)

from mori.co.jp



it is to open on February 11.

i personally think they could have made the building a LOT more interesting looking for spending so much time on it, it seems cash really is tight these days. plus, the name is HORRIBLE...people are going to confuse it with roppongi hills right and left....

...but i will forgive them if they put in some interesting shops...i for one am hoping for a store that carries boudicca..

thanks for the article, runner
