American lifestyle accessories brand and retailer Cole Haan has opened its first overseas flagship store in Ginza, Tokyo, Japan.
The 2,000 square foot store features the brand’s new ‘global lifestyle concept’, a Cole Haan retail prototype that houses the full Cole Haan lifestyle collection including footwear, small leather goods, outerwear, sunglasses and jewellery, as well as the debut Autumn/Winter 2014 women's handbag collection.
"This store marks the new face of Cole Haan in its retail stores and will be the basis for our expansion into China, Korea and the rest of the Asia Pacific region," said Jack Boys, CEO of Cole Haan. "It represents an outstanding blend of tradition and modernity, with distinct presentations to both our female and male consumers."
Greg Dinges, president of Cole Haan Japan, added: "We are very excited that Ginza in Tokyo will be the site of our first global flagship store for the modern Cole Haan. Our brand has a great 20 year heritage in Japan and we're elated to open this new chapter in our history.
“We are confident that the Japanese consumer will love the new store, the casually elegant environment and our expanded and updated product offering for men and women."
