The new Ginza Six retail complex in Tokyo, inaugurated on April 17 at a ceremony attended by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Tokyo Governor, Yuriko Koike and Bernard Arnault, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of LVMH, is the largest mall in Japan with over 240 luxury retailers inside.
Ginza Six was built at the site formerly occupied by the emblematic Ginza department store Matsuzakaya. Architect Yoshio Taniguchi, known for his renovation and extension of MoMA in New York, designed the building, whose facades meld harmoniously with the surrounding urban landscape.
The interior design is the work of Gwenael Nicolas, who has created numerous stores for brands including Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi. The building also features a 4,000-square-meter rooftop garden.
With 47,000 square meters of retail space, Ginza Six welcomes 241 stores, including ten Dior, Céline, Fendi, Kenzo, Loewe, Guerlain, Make Up For Ever, Fred and Moynat. The Céline, Dior and Fendi stores will have façades on Chuo-dori avenue, the main shopping street in Ginza.
Last week Dior staged a stunning haute couture show in the Ginza Six rooftop garden, attended by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director for Dior women’s collections.
Ginza Six is located in the heart of Tokyo’s Ginza district, renowned for luxury shopping and a crossroads of cutting-edge innovation and Japanese tradition.
