First opened in 2009 on the premises of the futuristic GYRE building in Tokyo, featuring a setting anchored by eight large antique timber-and-glass cabinets borrowed from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the quirkily concepted TRADING MUSEUM Comme des Garçons has since evolved. Officially reopening its doors on Sun – Nov 17, the store will reveal a full revamp of its interior. Designed by Comme des Garçons‘ elusive creative honcho Rei Kawakubo, the store interior is void of the aforementioned cabinets and now flaunts a distinctly modern look that’s very compatible with many a Comme des Garçons retail space across the planet. With an austere backdrop of merely white walls, concrete flooring and an exposed ceiling, the store is dotted with tall cylindrical metal volumes, either halved or featuring large cut-outs, and even one or two featuring small display cabinets on the outside, which offer secluded nooks for a wide variety of coveted merchandise. The sales counter, in pristine white, occupies a similar albeit low cylinder volume. Additional furnishings include displays, shelving units, and also a set of chairs which Kawakubo herself designed in the 1980s. The renewed TRADING MUSEUM Comme des Garçons store carries a curated selection of apparel, accessories and shoes from the brand’s various lines, in addition to fragrances.
