You know that new massive Bape Harajuku Store that opened up last month in the back of Omotesando Hills? It’s only the other day, while walking around Harajuku, that I realized that it marked the closing of the Bape Busy Workshop, the first Bape store. The brand’s Pharrell-colab Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream shops are still there on the first floor (the Busy Workshop occupied the basement level). Still no idea what will replace the old store, but while I was there, a few suits were checking out the empty space.
