    I am digging through my magazines and here are what I found.



    CDG Kyoto Store - scanned from Burtus Casa Magazine (Nov. 2002)



    This
    issue talks about Architecture and Fashion. They did a really
    cool series of photo to show the store front...and some interior shots.



    First one shot at 06:25

    Counter shot



    I guess those are like wallpaper? It said
    that they are done by a NY photographer (don't know how to translate
    her name) and they are photos of refrgirator/freezer or some
    sort...Theme is "science and human/earth" (sorry if I my translation is
    not correct)



    <>I wonder if it still look the same...it's in 2002

    Nice images, Faust and Buckwheat. The different shots throughout the day are great.



    I am kicking myself for not visiting CdG Kyoto while I was there now. The main CdG flagship in Tokyo Aoyama seems really ordinary compared to it!

    let us raise a toast to ancient cotton, rotten voile, gloomy silk, slick carf, decayed goat, inflamed ram, sooty nelton, stifling silk, lazy sheep, bone-dry broad & skinny baffalo.

    You are welcome all.



    Astrid - yeahI remember that chirstmas baby. That was the year people were crazy about that gold CDG baby t-shirt.



    I still have some CDG stuff that need to be scanned. Hopefully this weekend.

    I love the CDG stores. When I was living in Japan, those places were received far more of my salary than was "fiscally prudent." The one I frequented most was in Niigata, western Japan. It wasn't nearly as large as these other stores, but it was still interesting (and odd!) because half of the store was on one side of an alleyway and the other half was completely separate and on the other side. So, to see the collections, you had to go to the one store, look around,and then go to the other side and keep looking.Each store had its own register and sales staff, too, so sometimes it almost seemed like the one half was competing with the other half.



    I'll see if I can't scrounge up some pictures of it. It was a fun place. And, like all the Comme stores, there was barely any sign to be seen. I probably walked past the place a hundred times before realizing what it was (proabably a good thing for my wallet).

    The Kyoto store is such a bullish one:-)) unlike the other Comme stores



    From http://www.wirtzgallery.com/works/wa...002_frame.html



    I think the decoration comes from her (Catherine Wagner)works called "-86 Degree Freezers (12 Areas of Concern and Crisis) "

    Great to see you around here nqth. I knew you will show up in this thread.



    Thanks for all the interior shots. They look really cool.



    Do you know if that is permanent display in the store or they change from time to time?
