CHRISTOPHER NEMETH STORE TOKYO
CHRISTOPHER NEMETH STORE
On an afternoon in Tokyo, we met with our dear friends at Christopher Nemeth in Tokyo, sisters Riyo and Lui with their lovely mother Keiko, Champ Editor Joanna and photographer Nadia Sarwar [Frou Frou] to capture the final moments of the original Christopher Nemeth store as it had been for 21 years prior to pending renovation.
The pivotal and eponymous store of the British-born and later Tokyo-based designer and artist Christopher Nemeth is a perfect reflection of the artists unique spirit of organic creativity. Nemeth’s renowned signature style was ahead of it’s time – establishing a revolutionary new outlook on clothing, as he de-constructed suits and illustrated over materials and garments, his organic and unique approach also involved like-minded creatives such as Judy Blame and Mark Lebon.
The store is currently undergoing a new store renovation to be complete by end of December, 2015.
Please visit them at their current temporary location nearby.
