products

all products are chosen to hang around the theme of 'revolution' including rock, punk, and so forth. 1st floor is men's and women's apparel [house label by taishi nobukuni plus yoko devereaux, frank leder,...] books and vinyl [art books, poetry, vintage magazines, some first editions inlcuding work by allen ginsberg], lots of accessories made from antique silver from england. 2nd floor art space and 3rd floor cafe [actually out door seating up here is great in good weather].

clientele

harajuku kids who happen to stroll by and are curious enough to go see what's inside this huge concrete building plus other non-japanese folks who saw it in the press. folks who want to hang out on the roof top terrace and have an afternoon beer...

service

if someone said these people are not nice, they would be lying.

interior

so yeah, designed by tom dixon who was inspired to make it feel like a concrete bunker where a bunch of revolutionaries would be hiding out. nice space but the che guevara imagery is a bit heavy-handed though presumable that's not tom's touch.

ambience

>> the fashion of bomb shelters <<

scary name. interesting store. most notable as the first architecture project by british designer tom dixon. don't let the name fool you though, it's a shop, not a club. café liberte upstairs.
