Berlin Shops

‘The retail experience interrelates with the neighbourhood and is located where people live, work and do their everyday shopping,’ Kawakubo says.

Japanese fashion label Comme des Garçons has opened two new shops beside one another in Berlin, fusing the brand and the city’s heritages.

‘The concept is based on the idea of integrating the brand in the authentic district of Berlin-Mitte, where the shops merge with their surroundings in a lively residential area,’ says Rei Kawakubo, fashion designer and founder of Comme des Garçons.

The BLACK SHOP appropriately sells the brand’s BLACK line, while the POCKET SHOP next door sells more accessories including perfumes and wallets. Mimicking a convenience store, the shop sells permanent products and ever-changing limited edition items.
