#Shopping ♪ Light Years ahead of the Fashion Trend of Tokyo! Winter @LUMINE EST SHINJUKU





#Shopping ♪ Winter @LUMINE EST SHINJUKU Light Years ahead of the Fashion Trend of Tokyo

A style collection unique to Shinjuku, Tokyo Japan: LUMINE EST SHINJUKU 2015-2016 WINTER

Let's step out ahead of the winter trend of Tokyo!
Winter season fashion is the best, because of all the items that you can procure! ^^
To explain the winter in Tokyo, it's a bit tricky because  it's too cold to not walk the streets fully layered up to keep warm. Luckily for us this is the only spot that fashionistas in Japan gather to plunder the vast and stylish items out for sale.
Shall we jump ahead of the Tokyo fashion trends for this winter?
From the second floor basement to the 9th floor this building is built to shop till you drop. 
If you make a fashion trip to Tokyo, please set your destination to LUMINE EST Shinjuku!




ルミネ (LUMINE) 

Shibuya, Ikebukuro and Yuraku-cho etc…Each Lumine location is actually attached to their respective stations. 
Upon arriving from the train, your shopping can begin immediately! Just like Japan to make shopping even more convenient! Lumine comes from the French word “luminarie” , meaning, “light” and, fusing this with the English word “illumination” we see the birth of the name, “LUMINE”. Sounds right...right?
