There’s something I love about walking into a retail store. Online shopping rules but when the sights are as visually appealing as these – it makes me want to plop down the Am Ex and make my husband cry. Swaokvski, Tokyo opened in March 2008 to rave reviews. This retail haven was designed by Tokujin Yoshioka. Both exterior and interior are lined with rows of LED lit acrylic shards, it has a stainless steel and crystal staircase and it has more than three tons of precious material. All the other Swarovski boutiques will be refurbished according to the new architectural concept of this flagship store from 2008.
