The COMME des GARÇONS Guerrilla Store Berlin has now found a great successor. Lil Schlichting-Stegemann, who concepted and ran the three former Guerrilla Stores in Berlin, has now opened LIL*SHOP (www.lil-shop.com) in Brunnenstraße 184, Berlin-Mitte. For the opening, Reiko Yuyuma, Japans first female Sushi cook along with Maki Nomiya (singer of the former group Pizzicato Five) celebrated an eccentric Sushi performance.
The new concept provides selling as well pieces from vintage collections as the new lines, special editions from Japan, perfumes and the wallet-line of Rei Kawakubo. In addition to the new name, the new store is changing the habit of moving every year. It has now found a home in Brunnenstraße, near Rosenthaler Platz.
In the neighbourhood, away from the main shopping area, you find the exciting mixture, which is typical for Berlin: an anarchistic ‚for free’ shop in a squat, Asia-Shops and especially a bunch of young Berlin galleries. A spot which is exciting because of these contrasts.
Lil Shope will be mainly carrying Comme des Garcons and Junya Watanabe in Berlin. The store looks great. Have a closer look after the jump.
