Young people gather in the streets of the Shibuya district, and you will often see tourists taking photos at the Scramble Crossing - the busiest pedestrian crossing in Japan - and along the Center Gai (central shopping street).

One of Shibuya’s symbols is SHIBUYA 109, recognizable by the giant SHIBUYA 109 logo and the advertising which covers the entirety of the cylindrical building. Fondly known as “Maru-kyū” (meaning “zero-nine”), SHIBUYA 109 is a hub for fashion boutiques that target teen girls and women in their twenties, which means that you can catch the latest Japanese trends here.

This time, we will introduce you to three Mark Styler-operated brands with SHIBUYA 109 outlets, which have overwhelming support from young women: EMODA, Dazzlin, and MURUA.

EMODA is always integrating new styles, materials and shapes into its products, in keeping with its central theme of “the transmission of fashions and trends.” Partnering different colors, patterns and unusual materials with the world of black and white to create style combinations which are strong, yet feminine, EMODA has a range of refined items which are also practical enough for everyday use.

The interior design is essentially monochrome-themed, in order to create a specific atmosphere.

EMODA’s unique jeggings show off the individuality of the brand, as the tight construction creates a long-legged, gorgeous silhouette for the wearer.

2. Dazzlin (4F)

The design of the store is based around a white wooden deck theme, and the tables and mirrors are all constructed using the same materials, in order to give the interior a unified feel.
