Vans has inaugurated its first retail location in Japan, a three-story building in the Harajuku district of Tokyo. The first two floors are for footwear, apparel and accessories; and the third one for its skate collection. Three Japanese artists – Shigeki Matsuyama, Yutaka and Hirotton – were commissioned to produce wall paintings to illustrate the brand’s “Off The Wall” slogan. The store will host activations, music, art, street-culture events, live broadcasts and highlights of Vans tournaments, such as the Vans Park Series and Vans Musician Wanted. It will also be carrying special editions of apparel and holding a grand-opening sale, with details available on the Vans Japan Instagram page.
