The resulting white-lacquer and glass space is, at 1600sq m, one of their biggest stores yet.

i want: Barbie by Comme des Garçons

Love the Commes des Garçons. The dress is perfect. For the very first time, Barbie is dressed by Rei Kawakubo, and forms part of Jingle Flowers, Comme des Garçons’ new nonsense theme for the Xmas holidays.

Comme des Garçons baby! PARIS – For its next designer collaboration, H&M is trying on something avant-garde for size and teaming up with Japanese fashion maverick Rei Kawakubo. A onetime Comme des Garçons for H&M collection is slated to launch in early November as the Swedish fast-fashion giant opens its first stores in Japan: a 10,000-square-foot unit in Tokyo’s Ginza district and a 16,000-square-foot location in hyper-trendy Harajuku. An international rollout will follow.
