BEAMS is one of the most popular “select shops” in Japan. A “select shop” is a shop where they sell a selection of items from variety of brands, some of them imported. In many cases, select shops have their own brands too. BEAMS is an example of one of these, in that they sell selected items as well as their own designs. If you’re a fashion lover, you definitely have to check BEAMS out.

If you love Japanese fashion, PORTER (Yoshida Kaban). Here is an amazing collaboration: BEAMS and PORTER! They created an original brand named B jirushi Yoshida. “Jirushi” comes from the Japanese “shirushi,” which means a mark, so the brand name means YOSHIDA marked by BEAMS.

If you find an interesting CD, feel free to ask the staff if you can listen to it at the shop even before buying it, like you go to the fitting room at a boutique.

See this pop-up store in Nakano Broadway. The concept of the booth was a closet of Shokotan.

Catchy slogan

What keeps people thinking that BEAMS is stylish, even though they have so many labels with different concept? One of the reasons why people have the coherent image of BEAMS being a stylish brand is their catchy ads. This poster says “fall in love with someone.”

In Japan, recently we have fewer young people in relationships, which means they’re falling in love with no one! It is a serious social problem, so BEAMS launched this ad campaign. The photo of the couple wearing BEAMS’ stylish outfits with this message was catchy and encouraging!

The next one is this ad, with the slogan “LIFE AS CINEMA”. This phrase with the cinema-like design brought gave women a romantic feeling.

“We call lying to yourself ‘patience’”. It sounds like girls can be bolder in life as well as in their fashion.
