Abercrombie & Fitch is an American fashion retailer. The Abercrombie & Fitch brand focuses on casualwear for a target consumer ages of 18 through 22. With over 300 locations in the United States, the brand has embarked on international expansion throughout various world markets.
Abercrombie & Fitch will targets Japanese markets where luxury consumption is noticeably high. Clothing tags have now begun to carry Japanese language washing instructions apart from English and French.
Abercrombie & Fitch Ginza is its first flagship shop in Asian retail location.
The opening of A&F in Asia’s fashion capital took years of planing. A&F began to advertise itself in Ginza in 2006.
Building constraints inspired an “impressive in scale” 12 story design incorporating two elevators and a fire glass staircase for consumer use connecting all floors and mezzanine. Its height makes it the tallest building in Ginza.
This location will become the fifth flagship opening (after Milan), and the company anticipates opening additional small retail locations in Japan. A second Abercrombie & Fitch store will open in Fukuoka, Japan in 2010. (wikipedia)
