Okay it’s not Dover Street Market, but fashion prayers have been heard, after Tokyo and Paris Rei Kawakubo opened a Comme des Garçons Pocket Shop in Amsterdam. What to expect? A supermarket style store packed with – what’s in a name – pocket-size wannahaves from the affordable Play label that are too cool to resist. Hello Kyoto fragrance, Hello breton stripe Play tee, Hello polkadot wallet.

After having worked as a menswear buyer and fashion director for Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys, Nick Wooster now calls himself a free agent. His relatively small home on Christopher Street is decorated with the same unique mix of styles that makes him the most stylish and influential man in the fashion world.
The Stephen Kenn couch is handmade out of vintage WWII military fabric and matches the framed black and white vintage portraits that the Wooster collects from antique shops. Nick also believes in Feng Shui; the bedroom is laid out so that the back of his fifties Auping Cleopatra bed doesn’t face the door.
“I could have lived in a bigger, newer apartment out in Chelsea or somewhere else but it’s just not the same,” he told Bang & Olufsen magazine. If you think it’s all because of the trendy, New Yorker neighborhood, that’s not the only reason: “Every subway line you want is right here.”
