The first label most people associate Japanese accessory with is usually PORTER, the simple yet exceptionally well made bags by members of the Yoshida family. Now, after close to 2 years of planning, Yoshida & Co. in conjunction its Taiwanese affiliate, PORTER INTERNATIONAL, is on track to open the very first PORTER flagship store, or better known as KURA CHIKA, in Taiwan on Friday, December 19th. The new store will be at the heart of the trendy East District of Taipei City, just doors away from UNDERCOVER Taipei and INVINCIBLE. Aside from the 2 KURA CHIKA stores in Hong Kong. Taipei will be the second city outside of Japan to have a flagship cater to it domestic consumers. An interesting note, though very catchy, the name KURA CHIKA is actually derived from the names of Yoshida & Co.'s founder and his wife, a simple homage created by their son, the current CEO of the label.
