Never heard of Forever 21 until they opened their first retail store in Japan right next to their rivals H&M. T'was in the news for quite a bit as the ladies went into a frenzy for some coolsome apparel.
Wifey is into fashion, accessories and zakka and likes to check out the latest and greatest in these areas. She went along to the opening of Forever 21 in Harajuku and came back with a few pics.
The first couple of photos of the queue taken just outside the Softbank Store - which is a long way from Forever 21. A news report below covers the opening.
Another question for men - have your purchased any clothes for your partner before?
When I was on a business trip in Seattle, I was shopping for some really cute tops for wifey. I didn't know her trouser size at the time so all I could do was to try them on myself! Not at the shop though - bought them back to the hotel. Was laughing at myself all afternoon.
Do they have Forever 21 in your neck of the woods? I saw some comments as to how Forever 21 is just another fashion retail store and that they was surprised to see the queues. I also saw some comments of how stores like Muji and Uniqlo get queues like these outside of Japan - if you have any photos then would love to see some.
