this small comme des garçons store is an unexpected find. amazingly, it has been operating under the radar of international cdg fans for the past five years but it's well-known to local fashionistas, some of whom regularly commute all the way from moscow to get their cdg fix. in august 2008 the store will move down the road to bigger premises at nevskiy prospekt 156. we were told that the shop's interior will resemble that of the fukuoka flagship, featuring a lot of steel.
