About Kyoto

Kyoto was founded in 2001 and is situated in Istedgade, Copenhagen. At the time Istedgade had a reputation for being a street with a rather raw and harsh atmosphere.

Today Istedgade has undergone a huge development and is one of the most stimulating and trendy streets in Copenhagen with a lot of popular clothing stores, cafés and cocktail bars. Istedgade has its own unique atmosphere and in 2003 it was awarded the most trendy place to live in Copenhagen by the fashion magazine Wallpaper. Some might even compare it to Soho, New York.

Kyoto started out purely as a male fashion store with a predominant focus on jeans. Still, Kyoto grew parallel to the development of Istedgade and in 2008 the shop moved to bigger premises on the opposite side of the street.

Today Kyoto focuses on male and female fashion, including shoes and sneakers. The shop's ambience is welcoming and relaxed which is felt the moment you enter Kyoto. At the same time, we also want to inspire and excite our customers with a very specific choice of brands, creative store layout and knowledgeable and helpful sales assistants.
