Commes Des Garçons- 116 Wooster Street, New York
Hi there,

I am doing a piece on this iconic boutique that opened in the mid 1980s.
Now it's Barneys. Does anyone in the NY area know roughly when it changed over?
I think it was the late 90s but I really need a reliable source.

Kind Regards

i think it was in the 90's as well...
then i believe it was a prada store for awhile before barneys took over that space...
if you can find out when the chelsea comme store first opened, that will tell you when the soho shop closed cause it was at the same time...
