CELINE which was about to reintroduce their renewed flagship store today at Tokyo’s acclaimed Omotesando street, had suddenly halted their grand opening. At the same time, store openings at other branches scheduled for Feb. 27 at Shinjuku Isetan Mens and Osaka Hankyu Mens have also been postponed. CELINE Japan commented by saying that their decision was “to provide better services for our customers.”
In January of 2018 not long after the new creative director Hedi Slimane was appointed, there were high expectations to where the brand direction would be headed under Hedi’s scrutiny, with many anticipating the changes upon the store’s opening in Japan.
The Omotesando branch is expected to open on Mar.4 while the Shinjuku Isetan Mens and Osaka Hankyu Mens will reopen on Mar. 6.
