Inside the shop, it's all about hats


What you see when you enter CA4LA shops is nothing but hats.


They present their hats artistically, to show that hats are not just to avoid sunshine but can also be used to express your originality and style.

Don't miss checking out their interior design too.


This is one of their shops  in Kichijoji, Tokyo. This shop's concept is based on a pub with the wish that their shop will be a cheerful place like a pub in London.

Who says hats are only for Western styles?


CA4LA recommends wearing a hat when you are dressed in kimono too.


Recently, young Japanese people have been enjoying kimono fashionably by adding modern touches, so CA4LA's proposal is right with the trends!


With a hat, kimono styles seem less formal, which allows us to add kimono into our daily wardrobes.
