The t-shirt will retail for $1600 HKD (approximately $206 USD).

COMME des GARÇONS Hong Kong Store

Under the Ground moves relocated from On Lan Street to Ice House Street

There is always some common ground in vision between COMME DES GARÇONS and pioneering local fashion retailer I.T. COMME DES GARÇONS’ first Hong Kong store, opened on On Lan Street in March 2007, will be relocated to a lofty space on Ice House Street. The COMME des GARÇONS store on Ice House Street spans across 4,400 sq. ft., presenting all the 15 collections of the brand: COMME DES GARÇONS, COMME DES GARÇONS COMME DES GARÇONS, JUNYA WATANABE COMME DES GARÇONS, TRICOT COMME DES GARÇONS, COMME DES GARÇONS HOMME PLUS, COMME DES GARÇONS SHIRT, COMME DES GARÇONS HOMME, DOVER STREET MARKET, COMME DES GARÇONS play, TAO COMME DES GARÇONS, GARNYU, COMME DES GARÇONS SPEEDO, COMME DES GARÇONS PARFUMS, COMME DES GARÇONS WALLET & ACCESSORIES.

Occupying the basement of Ice House Street, this brand new COMME DES GARÇON store named “COMME DES GARÇONS UNDER THE GROUND” dazzles customers with the exquisite graphic prints all across the entrance on the ground floor and the walls. Walk along the alley and alight from the stairs to the basement. The walk throughout the white lighting and the all-over graphic prints on the wall provides the visual pleasure of a stroll in an art museum. At the end of the stairway one will find two entrances, one leading to JUNYA WATANABE COMME DES GARÇONS and COMME DES GARÇONS HOMME, and the other to an arc-shaped area, in which two curvy white walls separate COMME DES GARÇONS SHIRT, COMME DES GARÇONS COMME DES GARÇONS and COMME DES GARÇONS play; as if losing oneself in the fashion maze of Rei Kawakubu. An innovative interior design redefines the boundary of the retail space. The original high ceiling is divided into different parts of different heights; which, together with the rough concrete walls, resembles a meandering maze dazzling with originality and chic.

Across the arc-shaped area a customer will be led into another realm – EXHIBITION AREA. It is a rectangular transparent box in which, at the grand opening of the new shop, will present an artwork by celebrated Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei. The two walls of the EXHIBITION AREA are adorned with hanging spectacular installations of COMME DES GARÇONS及COMME DES GARÇONS HOMME PLUS。
