First Hollywood, now Tokyo. Just like Planet Blue, celeb-approved denim line JET made its international debut in Japan this April, bringing its street style gear to Tokyo Midtown, Roppongi.
There to celebrate the launch was designer (and former Fred Segal VP) John Eshaya, who tells us the brand enjoyed a fanatic overseas following for years. "We wanted them to have a full JET store experience," he says. The new 600-square-foot shop marks the first time Japanese shoppers can snag the goods straight from their home turf.
The Cali-casual brand, whose hoodie-meets-denim jackets sold at Fred Segal SaMo have been snapped on the likes of Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz and Hayden Panettiere, unveiled its exclusive JET Los Angeles line, available only in Japan. The line features leather shorts, bomber jackets, sweaters, sweatpants and menswear. Check out more pics from the shop's bash here. —Danielle Directo-Meston
