As Japanese culture continues to influence the Western fashion landscape, conceptual retailer Opening Ceremony embraces this universal love for the Land of the Rising Sun’s style with a new installation in New York debuting two of its latest collaborations.
Australian vintage store dot Comme specializes in sourcing some of the most grail-worthy COMME des GARÇONS archives from collectors located all over the globe. For its inaugural Stateside pop-up, founder Otto la Rosa teamed up with OC to select and sell over 250 ultra rare pieces across the Japanese fashion house’s many sub-labels, pricing everything from $100 to $2,000. Take a gander at some of our favorites above.
The second partnership taps original Harajuku cult street style magazine FRUiTS, which, after 20 years, has just announced its closure. In commemoration of the magazine’s legacy, OC has imported over 100 archival issues, all available for purchase at $20 to $25, in addition to collaborating on a limited edition T-shirt and hoodie capsule collection, which ranges from $35 to $75.
Be sure to check out the installation in New York City at 35 Howard Street before it moves to Opening Ceremony’s Los Angeles flagship on May 25. You can also shop the FRUiTS capsule line on the store’s website.
