Luxury fashion house Hermes has opened a new store in Osaka, its fourth store in the city.
Located at Parco shopping centre, the new Hermes store spans two stories and occupies a 515sqm space.
Designed by the Parisian architecture agency RDAI, the store facade features floor-to-ceiling undulating glass windows, creating a “water-like effect” on both floors. Meanwhile, the store interior is decorated with ropes hanging from the ceiling, showcasing traditional Japanese craftsmanship with the Kumihimo braiding technique.
Hermes’ silk collections, including the new double-sized scarves, are displayed at the store’s centre while ready-to-wear collections are presented at both sides of the store. Far end of the store is an “intimate salon”, featuring women’s accessories, including shoes, jewellery and watches.
The new Hermes Osaka store features a bar and a made-to-measure service on the upper floor.
“Echoing the annual theme for 2020, Innovation in the Making, this new retail space mirrors Hermes’ tribute to the human hand and to the ingenuity of its artisans,” the company said in a statement.
