PEA POWER: The Black Eyed Peas rocked Hennes & Mauritz’s new Tokyo Shibuya flagship Thursday night with a special DJ/karoke-style performance broadcast to passersby via a large screen on the store’s facade. Fergie, clad in a green tank top and baggy gray pants, belted out crowd favorites like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” and The Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction” as her bandmates Will.i.am, Apl.de.ap and Taboo manned a laptop and turntables. The 30,000-square-foot store, which opened Saturday, is H&M’s fifth outpost in Japan. A fourth Tokyo store will open later this fall, while H&M’s first Osaka store is slated for the spring. H&M’s Japan chief Christine Edman, who grew up in Tokyo, said the Shibuya opening has a special significance for her. “I’m just really excited…to be able to open in Shibuya, somewhere that I used to shop as a teenager,” she said.
