In the footsteps of UNIQLO, Carhartt WIP, and more recently Stussy, Japanese retail giant BEAMS is getting ready to open its first flagship store in Taipei City, Taiwan. Already in other cities of the Greater China region like Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, the opening of BEAMS Taiwan will be a conduit for well-designed goods, apparel, even art works, directly from Japan and elsewhere. To better serve the vast creative types now living in Taipei, the new store will likely be at city’s Songshan District, a tree-lined residential neighborhood known for its snug parks, vintage apartment blocks, and a number of small to medium creative agencies. Currently, a temporary pop-up shop featuring a rotation of products from BEAMS, the permanent storefront is set to open in mid-June of this year.
