    Thanks Eric,

    I think the shops are quite in harmony with what the fragrances suggest. I'm not a fashion maven so can't comment on that aspect, but from a perfume angle I think the shops tell all.
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    I have been to the red shop several years ago. I'm happy to see the installation thingie is still there; it's quite adorable. I purchased a wallet, the classic CdG zip thingie, in red, cause it reminded me of the "chill" space, also because it was HOT. I wish I'd done as a friend did who imitated me in paris the next year: he used his red wallet at home only for holding cash, and his still looks great mine died a couple of years ago.

    An ebay tip: they have all these fake CdG wallet's supposedly "made in Spain" that come from Hong Kong. They are most definitely fake and I purchased one so I know. Also, I bitched at the seller and got a refund, and didn't have to return it cause I insisted he'd have to pay shipping, which would certainly be a lot more than he paid for the HK knock offs.

    Having a free fake comme wallet is not so bad, it's the one I use currently!

    The sterile qualities of the shops look perfect for the CdG lines. Sharp edges, bright solid colors and somewhat skewed. Very modern minimalist.

    I'd love to visit one.........

    What's interesting is that though Comme des Garçons clothes are quite expensive, the shops are not about obvious luxury. It's not the Dior, Gucci, Versace Bling-blings set that shops here.

    hm, i don't if i got it right about fake comme wallets, but i can assure you the genuine ones do say "made in spain" even if the very first ones were "made in japan"!

    My friend Cindy outside the Paris store last fall. It was closed that day unfortunately. The bad quality is because of the cell phone camera...

    Nice pic, Shifts! Love the contrast between the red shop and your green-clad friend!
