Super hip French stuff. This is the label whose mass market line has put a heart with eyes onto the sweaters and shirts onto every aspiring fashionboy and fashiongirl. There’s only one dedicated CdG store in Shanghai (even if it’s been available at the now-defunct 10 Corso Como and others) and this is it. The label is actually Japanese, founded by Rei Kawakubo in 1969, and named after a 1962 Francois Hardy song. They are big on hand-made clothing (that heart with eyes is supposedly hand-stitched) and the color black.
