Some boutiques and brand name designer’s shops in Tokyo do not just offer you a great selection of their latest and trendiest designs, but an experience. Shopping in Tokyo can become more than just a trip out to find a white T-shirt if you throw in an incredible atmosphere and flow. You find this fantastic fusion of environment and style at the Comme des Garcons store in Aoyama, located just two blocks south of the Tokyo Metro’s Aoyama station. If you have ever wanted to be bathed in a soft blue and white light while you browse, or maybe your dream shopping setting is a mixture of the inside of an aquarium tank and the Starship Enterprise, then try the Comme des Garcon for a whole new shopping experience.
Walking up to the Comme des Garcons store in Aoyama is in a way just as impressive as seeing the Tokyo Tower at night. The entire interior, and therefore the side walk outside, is wholly illuminated and it is hard not to be drawn to it like a moth to a porch lamp. The store itself is absolutely stunning and the people walking past it without a glance are both impressive and have no idea what treasures they are missing out on by not going inside. Comme des Garcons is known for their innovative and cutting edge fashion that never hold back. The pieces that make you take a double take, like a pair of mesh and taffeta pink multifaceted pants, are both bizarre and breathtaking. Although many of their items may seem unwearable outside of a Paris runway situation, there is also an aspect to their fashion that allows you to imagine yourself wearing their styles and making them work because something about Comme des Garcons just makes you want to. Their sullen and pale faced models and facade has forged a large internet following for Comme des Garcon with the hipster and street fashion crowd and it is those in the know who have elevated this label to celebrity status. Without even being aware of it, Comme des Garcon has become the undisputed face of hipster and cutting edge fashion. Whether it be a full suit speckled with Rolling Stone lips, a silk smoking jacket, or a blue velvet petal brimmed bowler hat, you can be sure that you will not be cheated out of the latest styles and fashions.
If cutting edge style and atmosphere is what you are after, then there is no other destination for you in Tokyo than Comme des Garcon in Aoyama.
