it's been a little over six years since comme des garçons first landed in the netherlands, setting up one of their groundbreaking guerilla stores at an obscure industrial zone in the hague. while the utilitarian building which the temporary shop occupied was spot on, the city of choice was somewhat puzzling. but now the brand has made a comeback - one that pairs longevity with a more fitting location - with the opening of a comme des garçons pocket store in amsterdam's canal district. the shop occupies a compact space of approx 25 sqm. [269 sq.ft.] and feautures an austere white-washed interior, furnished with a shelving unit and sales desk in the same hue. a faded wooden floor adds character to the place. the offerings of the new comme des garçons pocket store include men's and women's fragrances, scented candles, wallets, ipad covers, sneakers, t-shirts and a selection of men's shirts. location: prinsenstraat 26 [centrum].
