Finding a premium location smack on Mido-suji dori, a bustling tree-lined artery in the heart of the city, the British luxury brand rubs shoulders with peers from the industry, such as Hermès, Commes des Garçons and Louis Vuitton.

Rome wasn't built in a day – much like the world-famous companies that we all recognize today. Even they had to start from something – and you might be surprised when you find out that quite a few of them started out by doing things completely different than they are doing now.

Paper-covered sliding windows called shoji act as walls, and even then these are often left open. Similarly, thin sliding doors divide interior spaces.’
