Swatch Fall-Winter Collection
Eighty-five new models make up Swatchs 2001 fall-winter collection. Their message this season is the individualistic, I want to be...EAll the watches have a unique story or message embedded into their designs, which comprise five new series-Gent, Lady, Pop, Scuba and Square. The Fashion Fuzz (JY5500) is quirky, with a powder-puffy fur coat to cover the face and keep you warm during the cold winter season. The Ladys collection offers fun, feminine, fashionable fabrics in pastels, elegant gold and lots of silver and gold.

Available at all Swatch shops nationwide.

Emporio Armani
Moving from Meiji Dori to the chic, tree-lined streets of Omotesando, Emporio Armani opened their new boutique Sept 7. Armani Jeans, Armani Jr and Emporio Armani will line the shelves. While the Kioi-cho store remains the largest Giorgio Armani boutique in the world, the new Omotesando store is set to offer more than the previous Meiji Dori branch.

Pier One Imports
This old home-furnishings favorite has finally closed its doors on Japan. Just one in a number of foreign companies to feel the bite of recession, Pier One has returned to more friendly shores, pulling out of the Japanese market completely.
