The Los Angeles-based Band of Outsiders label has opened its first retail store -- a 1,768-square-foot space on the ground floor of a three-story building in Tokyo's Sendagaya neighborhood, with a showroom and offices occupying the upper floors. The building is a collaboration with architectural design studio LOT-EK. We hope to post additional details about Band's first stand-alone store soon, so stay tuned.
