After some time relocating and renovating, A.P.C. has finally reopened its flagship store at Kyoto, Japan. Fully aware of Kyoto’s reputation as the icon of historic Japan, A.P.C. Kyoto marries traditional Japanese design with its own signature minimalist aesthetic. Employing the Japanese architecture concept of uchi-soto, or inside-outside divide, the store contrasts a heavy stone entrance with a light, airy interior.
A.P.C. Kyoto features at its heart a French white oak partition structure, marking out a volume to show the various accessories the brand carries. Stone and wood, a common combination in Japanese architecture, sets a warm, inviting color palette mirrored in the walls and benches. The flagship carries collections for both men and women, as well as accessories, denim, and lifestyle items. If you’re ever in Kyoto anytime soon, be sure to pay the new A.P.C. store a visit.
