Pokemon.com has announced that a temporary Pokemon Boutique shop is opening in Los Angeles between June 6th and July 5th. It will carry “fashionable” Pokemon products and seems to be aimed toward girls.
Could this shop be a test-run for something in the future, or is it only meant to be a one-off thing? Perhaps they’re trying to test if they can market more Pokemon merchandise toward girls? The date the shop closes is the last day of Anime Expo, so maybe they’re trying to capture that crowd as well. I guess I’ll have to go opening night to find out what the deal is since it’s just 20 minutes away.
If you’re in Los Angeles between June 6 and July 5, 2015, don’t miss your chance to visit a special Pokémon Boutique pop-up shop! Working in collaboration with Japan LA Pop Culture Shop, this capsule collection will feature fashionable Pokémon products. Specialty designers such as Japan LA, Onch Movement, and Omocat will be designing exclusive Pokémon-themed fashion that you won’t want to miss.
The Pokémon Boutique opens June 6 with lots of exciting opening-night activities! There will be character photo opportunities, appearances by featured designers, celebrity DJ Amy Pham, nail artists, and more. The event runs from 6–10 p.m. on June 6, and all Pokémon fans are invited!
Don’t miss the Pokémon Boutique pop-up shop at Japan LA Pop Culture Shop in Los Angeles, starting with an opening-night celebration on June 6 and running through July 5!
