Tokyo Style is to open 60 clothing shops in 13 Chinese cities, including Beijing and Dalian, by this autumn.

Most of the outlets will be located inside department stores.

The company opened its first Chinese outlet in Shanghai in March 2004 and now operates 10 stores across China. 50 per cent of the brand's clothing is made in China.
