PARK HYATT TOKYO TAPS JAPANESE FASHION ICON AND MASTERMIND OF A BATHING APE® TO PRODUCE SECOND MUSIC COMPILATION
TOKYO SUITE Selected By NIGO® To Hit Stores November 25, 2009 TOKYO (September 2009) --- In a unique collaboration, Park Hyatt Tokyo, celebrating its 15th year as one of the world’s distinguished modern luxury hotels, has teamed up with NIGO®, producer, DJ and founder of the much-acclaimed Japanese clothing brand, A Bathing Ape®, to produce its second music compilation. The album, titled TOKYO SUITE Selected by NIGO®, will hit stores on November 25, 2009.

Known for his musical ties with Pharrell Williams of the award-winning N.E.R.D. and The Neptunes and as the DJ and “concept producer” of TERIYAKI BOYZ® (released on his own record label, Bape Sounds), NIGO®, has created an album celebrating the hotel’s connectivity with a city whose film, fashion, art and entertainment have captured the hearts and minds of travellers from around the world. Hip hop, house and lounge beats from the late ‘80s and early ‘90s take centre stage on the 1hour 5minute composition made up of an all Japanese line-up of artists, creating both a sense of nostalgia and a refreshing and eclectic mix. - more -

Drawing inspiration from his time spent in Park Hyatt Tokyo’s Tokyo Suite, a 220 sq m luxury suite on the 50th floor, NIGO® said, “I wanted to capture the mixed culture of Tokyo by blending Japanese underground classics and the modern luxury of Park Hyatt Tokyo through music.” “NIGO® has revolutionised Tokyo’s street wear culture. Now, with his worldwide retail shops, children’s line and record label, BAPE has transcended trends and become a lifestyle brand,” said Philippe Roux-Dessarps, general manager of Park Hyatt Tokyo. “As a valued guest of our hotel, it was very natural for us to collaborate and get his unique insight into creating a product that would capture the essence of the city of Tokyo.” The album will be available at A Bathing Ape shops worldwide and online at www.us.bape.com for U.S. residents. In Japan, the CD will be sold at select record shops and in Park Hyatt Tokyo’s Online Shop (http://shop.parkhyatttokyo.com).
