Comme Des Garcons Pocket is the cult Japanese label’s first Australian retail space.
The shop stocks the label’s eponymous Play line, which comprises casual wear ranging from T-shirts to long-sleeve tops and shoes made in collaboration with Converse. Launched in 2002, Play is unique because of its logo – an endearing red heart with eyes that appears on all of the items in the collection. There's also a comprehensive selection of wallets, including the latest Bright Star series and limited edition fragrances.
Everything is carefully colour coded and displayed throughout the minimal all-white interior, which has the same under-designed sensibility that many of the Pocket stores have become known for, articulating the Comme des Garcons identity via contained physical spaces.
The shop exudes a love for all things progressive, cultural and artistic and brings to Melbourne the same attitude of the Japanese flagship store and other Pocket stores around the world.
