On Mar 13, Japanese brand Tac:tac, produced by A-net Inc., opened its first directly operated store in Koenji, Tokyo. The store is located at the site of a former dance studio.

Debuted in Nov 2014, the brand is designed by Takaaki Shimase, a top graduate of Esmod Paris, with Kota Shimamura as the patternmaker. A wall clock serves as the brand logo and embodies the brand name. The logo represents the idea of enjoying the moments we spend to select, purchase and wear clothes.

Shirts, shop coats and jeans in elaborate patterns embellished with skillful cutting techniques present a colorful lineup for fashion lovers.

A-net Inc. produces a number of popular brands including Tsumori Chisato, Zucca and Ne-net.
