That’s HAPPY NEW YEAR (!!!) in Japanese. I just returned from my holiday vacation in Tokyo and figured I’d start off 2011 with a favorite. While everyone is in high sale mode, Opening Ceremony in Shibuya was pretty amaze across all 7 floors.. yes 7, which pretty much makes it my favorite OC store ever (never mind the constant fact that EVERYTHING they sell turns to gold). From the Rodarte Black Swan window displays to Pendleton fever and Junior High cork board/lockers, who cares if it’s sale stuff. These are by far some of the best visual merchandising displays out there!
In other OC news, the new Spring 11 video Billy The Kids is out. Cue cardboard cutouts, storytelling rhymes, Elvis and Bill Murray. Totally lost in translation, how apropos.
