Almost two years ago, ex-D’espairsray vocalist Hizumi launched his personal brand, UMBRELLA, for online sales. Offering a seasonal variety of artistic and practical goods such as bags, accessories, clothing, and jewelry, UMBRELLA has seen a good amount of success in its time. Hizumi occasionally sets up an “offline shop” at the Buddy SoundWorks guitar shop in Koenji for a day or two, a few times a year, and his jewelry has been available at Smart Freaks in Osaka, but until now there has been nowhere to purchase from Hizumi’s full line of UMBRELLA goods at a physical location.
Anyone interested in UMBRELLA but hesitant to purchase items from an online store can now stop in to shop the goods in person — fiveStars Nagoya has recently announced that they will be selling the brand in-store, including seasonal and limited items. They are also working together to host events for Hizumi to appear in the shop to ring up customers and promote his work, just like he has occasionally done in Koenji.
The shop recommends following its official Twitter account for updates regarding UMBRELLA and Hizumi’s in-store appearances (currently, none have been announced), but fans can also trust the typically Twitter-active Hizumi to send out the message whenever there’s news involving his brand.
