^^ I heard they used to do that at the end of every season (in a kind of CdG tradition) but stopped after they figured out they could just dump everything onto the Guerilla Stores. I do not have that on good authority, however...

so whats CDG Noir? Nqth do you know? or runner - have you seen this in Japan?

apparetly there is some sort of collaboration with aquascutum in the pipeline. That would be good.

Thanks for this droogist. I am surprised that there are so few shops in japan - I thought there were more.

Well, it's her universe, after all...if I had to diagram mine, I'd put myself right smack in the middle, too (taking a cue from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...)

...yes...i guess i saw the entire 'UNIVERSE'...

i was checking out the velvet bags...
*they are all sold out except for one, but it was too big...

the menswear is delicious...
some nice skirts (ivory or blk) and ivory wool crochet sweaters from the womens mainline...
*not much in yet though-no dresses
cdgcdg and tricot-*boring*...
junya-eh...too street and punk for my taste...
noir-so fun and VERY 60's..absolutely...*mary quant* comes to mind...
*not so easy to wear though...

c'est tout!!...
