Started in the streets of Tokyo
where the street culture evolved independently of the west with information
and influences from around the world always mixing together,
TYO EMPIRE got its start in a corner of a shop called Bounty Hunter in Harajuku in1998.
While the designs are very casual and have always been " street ",
TYO EMPIRE clothing is made to be worn with more high-end fashion items.
This is the concept and attitude of TYO EMPIRE.
