Commes de Garçons

520 W 22nd St.
2009

The Commes de Garcons space in Chelsea is literally a hole in the wall…well, the entrance is, at least. After entering through an aluminum tunnel surrounded by wheatpaste posters and overlapping tags, you’ll find the inside is an aesthetic play on texture, with a stainless-steel perfume bar, corrugated foam and white-finished steel serving as a backdrop to Rei Kawakubo’s coveted architectural garments, with the designs of Juna Watanabe thrown in the mix.
