Prada’s Japanese flagship store, designed by Basel-based architect Herzog & de Meuron, opens on 7 June. Situated in Tokyo’s Epicentre building in the Aayomo district, the store is inspired by the shapes of a crystal, says architect Jacques Herzog. It comprises a diamond-shaped grid filled with hundreds of glass panels, enabling passers-by to view the products on display and offering shoppers views across the city, he adds.
The new look was developed by Dragon Rouge and aims to bring together the nine councils that form the body.
The logo, a combination of the country’s heritage, will be shared by the Olympic and Paralympic Games for the first time.
According to the London-based designers, Rihanna’s eponymous book took two years to design.
