There’s no denying Stüssy‘s free-spirited style resonates quite well in the Japanese market, and the opening of the streetwear brand’s 46th outpost in the Land of the Rising Sun is proof of that. Situated in Sakae, an area in downtown Nagoya and the city’s prime shopping zone, the shop, or chapter in true Stüssy parlance, occupies a ground floor unit of a modern low-rise structure. Similar to a number of other Stüssy stores around the world, the interior design has been created by WP & A, a multi-disciplinary practice based in Los Angeles. Polished concrete flooring, half grey and white walls and white ceiling form the spartan backdrop for a number of furnishings crafted from untreated timber. Upon entering, shoppers are met by a window installation on one side, and decorative scaffolding wrapped around a brick planter directly opposite. It’s a recurring element in the store design, but incorporating tiered shelving at other locations. These floor-to-ceiling structures are paired metal equivalents with built-in lighting, wooden displays, a high-legged glass top display, and a curved sales counter of perforated steel. An additional planet in the middle of the space balances out the austerity with lush green foliage. Lighting comprises of ceiling light spots and two rows of suspended tubular lights, and it’s the latter which optically widen the premises. The new Stüssy store carries the brand’s full range of men’s apparel, accessories, bags, shoes and eyewear, in addition to a number of limited edition items.
