HYPEBEAST Road Trips Japan: A Look Into Head Porter Tokyo's Harajuku Store

Earlier this year, longtime accessories brand and institution Head Porter updated the interior of its Tokyo storefront, located on the backstreets of Harajuku. Combining the quality and functionality of manufacturer YOSHIDA KABAN (which also produces for Porter) with more fashion-forward aesthetics, the brand has yielded a legion of fans the world over. Head Porter and its subsequent Head Porter Plus apparel line have also provided clean and often minimal aesthetics across a broad range of offerings from bags and wallets to a full-on apparel line. The latest storefront is positioned near fellow streetwear heavyweights in a highly trafficked area which served as the birthplace for some of Japan’s most innovative and progressive streetwear brands of the last two decades.
