The MinaLima Pop-Up Shop Opens in Nagoya, Japan!

As we previously announced, the House of MinaLima has been spending some time in Japan this month! The design studio is currently hosting its first-ever Tokyo pop-up shop from March 15 to April 16 and has opened another in Japan this week.

From March 28 to April 1, MinaLima is setting up shop in Nagoya, in the Chubu region of Japan’s main island. The pop-up shop will be held on the tenth floor of the JR Nagoya Takashimaya department store as part of British Fair 2018. The fair explores elements of British culture, including food, art, and of course, tea!

 

 

In both locations, visitors will be able to view some of MinaLima’s most recognizable graphic design work as part of a specially curated collection for the pop-up shops. Designs from the Harry Potter films and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be available to purchase as limited-edition prints, prop replicas, stationery, and other accessories. Alongside the wonderful Potter products, visitors will also be able to purchase items from the studio’s own Collective Nouns series, as well as their illustrated classic books for HarperCollins, the latest of which is The Little Mermaid and Other Fairy Tales.

For those who are unable to make it to either shop, you can take a peek at the Tokyo pop-up shop below!
