Jimmy Choo for H&M in Shinjuku

H&M unveiled Jimmy Choo for H&M , a collaboration collection of women’s shoes, clothes, bags, and accessories, as well as menswear items on Nov.14.

Jimmy Choo ( 周仰杰) is a Malaysian fashion designer based in London. He is best known for founding Jimmy Choo Ltd that became known for its hand-made women's shoes.
Choo was born in Penang, Malaysia in a family of shoemakers. He is of Chinese Hakka descent. He made his first shoe when he was 11 years old. His craftsmanship and designs were soon noticed and he came to the verge of international notability when his creations were featured in a record eight pages in a 1988 issue of Vogue magazine. Patronage from Diana, Princess of Wales from 1990 onwards further boosted his image.

The opportunity to own Jimmy Choo designed fashion at H&M prices drew long lines at all four Tokyo H&M locations – Ginza, Harajuku, Shibuya, and the new store in Shinjuku.

Because the Jimmy Choo for H&M collection items were limited, H&M Japan used a wristband system to try to keep track of who would get a chance for first grab at the pieces. The first 160 shoppers at each store earned a chance at a wristband.

Mitsukoshi (三越) Ginza
Mitsukoshi Ginza

Mitsukoshi is an international department store chain with headquarters in Tokyo. It was founded in 1673 with the shop name "Echigoya (越後屋)".
Ten years later in 1683, Echigoya took a new approach to marketing. Instead of selling by going door-to-door, they set up a store where buyers could purchase goods on the spot with cash.

Tokyo’s oldest department store was originally modeled Harrods in London. Look for the Mitsukoshi lion at the corner entrance, which is a popular meeting spot.

In August 2007, Mitsukoshi was announced that Mitsukoshi will merge into Isetan (伊勢丹), a major department store in Japan.

Founded in 1899, Mikimoto Pearl (ミキモト真珠) was founded by the self-made Kokichi Mikimoto (御木本 幸吉).

Kokichi Mikimoto

In 1888, Mikimoto obtained a loan to start his first pearl oyster farm at the Shinmei inlet on Ago Bay in Mie prefecture. 
On 11 July 1893, after many failures and near bankruptcy, he was able to create the hemispherical cultured pearls.
However, it took him another 12 years to create completely spherical pearls that were indistinguishable from the highest quality natural ones, and commercially viable harvests were not obtained until the 1920s.

In 1899, the first Mikimoto pearl shop opened in the fashionable Ginza district of Tokyo selling natural seed pearls, and half round pearls. The store was located right next door to Wako department store.
