the comme des garçons pocket store opened its doors in melbourne little over three years ago, marking the japanese superbrand's first foray down under. not surprisingly, the shop has proven to be a popular shopping mecca with fashion-forward locals, and it has now relocated to bigger premises in the city's central business district. now simply called comme des garçons, it's situated in a heritage-listed brick building, occupying a 140 sqm. [1,507 sq.ft.] unit and once again features a quirky interior that pairs signature fixtures of many a comme des garçons store across the planet, such as polka dotted surfaces and scaffolding, with site-specific furnishings. the merchandise is quite elaborate, and includes the apparel lines comme des garçons comme des garçons, comme des garçons girl, comme des garçons shirt, comme des garçons shirt boy and comme des garçons shirt forever, in addition to the brand's coveted wallet collection, fragrances, and also select collab items. location: 13 somerset place [cbd].
