Fred Segal was among the first to introduce BEAMS products to the U.S. in 2011 and since then has been a passionate supporter of the BEAMS brand. Most recently, BEAMS selected Fred Segal Sunset to launch its first retail project in the U.S., the BEAMS COUTURE X Ziploc collection.

Fred Segal first introduced BEAMS products to the U .S. in 2011.

“BEAMS JAPAN is a project and passion that I hold very close to my heart. For over 40 years since our California-inspired beginning, BEAMS introduced the best of the world to Japan,” said Yo Shitara, president of BEAMS. “At BEAMS JAPAN we turn around to introduce to the world what we love most about the many cultures of our vibrant country. It is with great honor and excitement that we bring BEAMS JAPAN to Fred Segal, the spiritual home of Los Angeles style and culture.”
