aesop have opened their fifth store in the greater tokyo area, and this time it's on meiji dori, a bustling thoroughfare in the popular shopping nucleus of shibuya. the australian cosmetics brand has collaborated with torafu architects which also designed its stores in marunouchi and yokohama. the design of the store takes cues from windows on a side wall that were revealed during renovations, and which allow in soft natural light. a mirror has been cleverly installed on the opposite wall to enhance both light and extensity. streamlined wall-mounted shelving and an elongated sink in blackened steel stylishly contrast with pristine white walls and a mixed timber and sisal flooring. the new aesop store carries the brand's full range of skin, body and hair care products. location: 6-18-12 jingumae [harajuku].
