Without a doubt, Tokyo is on everyone’s dream destination list. Tokyo is a futuristic city where
travelers will find things like no other in the world. For individuals who are particularly
interested in art, technology or fashion, this is the place for you. Both streetwear in New York
City and Tokyo play off of each other and when you step into a vintage store or visit a streetwear brand, you’ll understand why.
If you’ve scoured through Beacon’s Closet, the L-Train Vintage or Kith in Brooklyn and the
Lower East Side, then your next best bet is Boy or A Bathing Ape (BAPE.) The former is a
popular lifestyle vintage store, much like our very own Alux Lifestyle Pop Up, and offers vintage
Japanese brands hard to find anywhere else. This shop is located specifically in Shibuya and can
especially be of interest to those who love music.
BAPE, of course, is one of the most popular streetwear brands in general and given that it is a
Japanese brand, you have to visit it when in Tokyo. Those who are truly into streetwear know the
influence BAPE has had on this particular industry. Their hoodies at this point are legendary.
After visiting Boy take a quick trip to BAPE as both stores are located in Shibuya.
Make sure not to spend all of your money at BAPE and Boy as in the near future our own Alux
Lifestyle Pop Up hopes to travel waters and have a pop up in Tokyo and other cities in the world.
Alux Lifestyle Pop Up isn’t the only NYC brand that hopes to have international pop ups. In
fact, the Blind Barber and Fellow Barber are two brands from the city that already have pop ups
Both locations of the two barber shops are impeccable and the service is of high quality. At Alux
we hope to take not only our vintage products overseas and grow our customers but to also treat the rest of the world with the skills of our talented barber-stylists at Orchard & Ludlow and
