The APC Kyoto Store on Shijo Dori Gets a Modern Overhaul

As APC continues its retail expansion in Japan, the recent overhaul of the APC Kyoto store speaks to the brand's evolving in-store concept and overall image. Located on Kyoto's busy Shijo Dori thoroughfare, the boutique was re-imagined by Paris-based in-house architect Laurent Deroo, who reflected the cultural identity and history of the city in the new store concept.

The new APC Kyoto store is characterized by an interior section created by a vertical lattice structure that reflects innovations in the retail concepts of the brand's peers. The newly refurbished store will carry the brand's entire men's and women's ranges including accessories, as well as home decor offerings from the brand such as quilts and candles.
