The new Onitsuka Tiger pop-up store at Xintiandi has a simple and modern design striving to create a visual mini-store ambient. Black and white keynotes run into specially-designed red light bars set on the floor. The strong contrast in colors and vision helps to depict the display area while a mirror zooms in on the products.
