If you were to list some Japanese clothing brands, iconic names like Comme des Garçons, Issey Miyake, and Yohji Yamamoto might roll off your tongue. Each brand carries their own storied histories (the 2017 Met Gala was dedicated to Rei Kawakubo), but there are plenty more Japanese labels to appreciate once you do a little deep dive into its fashion scene. Wandering the streets of shopping neighborhoods like Harajuku or Shinjuku can be the best way to discover both mainstream and independent Japanese clothing stores, but when this isn't a viable option the next best thing is to refer to the list ahead. We curated 13 Japanese fashion labels available to shop right now, so you don't have to travel far to experience what the brands have to offer. We even converted the yen to dollars for you, for some brands, to save you time at checkout.
