— Advance Orders to Be Accepted on EC Site from Feb. 22 –

TOKYO /PRNewswire/ — KOE, operated by Stripe International Inc. headquartered in Okayama, western Japan, will shortly release the second series of products it has developed in collaboration with designer THOM BROWNE.

It follows the first series of collaborative products, which were released in August 2016 and some of which were sold out.

KOE will begin to sell items in the second series at Hankyu Men’s Tokyo in the capital’s Chiyoda Ward and Hankyu Department Store’s Umeda Main Store in Kita Ward, Osaka, on March 1. Prior to their release, KOE will start accepting advance orders for the products on February 22 on its EC site.

Among clothes for men, such as jackets and shirts, and items for women, including one-piece suits, there are a total of 37 items for both men and women which will be sold in the second series with the “Marine” theme.

Excellently designed items such as those with a duck motif sold well in the first series, and the second series focuses on jackets and pants with a boat design as well as shirts and one-piece suits made in the motif of the so-called “sailor collar” among other items that deeply reflect THOM BROWNE’s perspective of the world.


Stripe International is determined to draw attention to KOE products from those who are unfamiliar with the brand through these collaborative products in an effort to raise its brand recognition. The company is striving to enhance KOE’s brand power with an eye to advancing into Europe and North America after 2020 through such efforts as the opening of the KOE HOUSE Jiyugaoka store in Tokyo, which focuses on people’s lifestyles, in autumn last year, and KOE also has plans to launch a flagship store within a hotel.
