Originally thought up as a way to preserve a sliver of the “Old New York” when Biography Book Shop closed its Bleecker Street location, the BOOKMARC retail concept by fashion designer Marc Jacobs became an instant hit when it opened in September 2010. Now with branches in Los Angeles and London, BOOKMARC by Marc Jacobs will be opening its very first chapter in Asia at the ever-trendy Harajuku neighborhood of Tokyo.
Like so many Marc Jacobs offices and stores, JAKLITSCH/GARDNER ARCHITECTS will be handling the new BOOKMARC’s design, which will be right off the main street of Omotesando and next to the Marc By Marc Jacobs boutique in Harajuku. Selling not only books, the store carries a variety of original stationery goods, fashion accessories, and serves as a venue space for booking reading and special events. BOOKMARC by Marc Jacobs in Harajuku, Tokyo, will be opening in October 2013.
