BEATLES IN TOKYO: Comme des Garçons feted its much-anticipated Beatles collection Friday night in Tokyo. Guests at Trading Museum, a new concept store by Comme des Garcons that stocks an eclectic mix of clothing, accessories and other odds and ends for display or sale, milled about listening to Beatles tunes and browsing the collection. Rei Kawakubo was also on hand, dressed in her trademark sunglasses and head-to-toe black. Yoko Ono cut a similarly dramatic figure. Flanked by security people, she greeted Kawakubo briefly before posing for a quick photo op and then taking a short tour of the store. Adrian Joffe, chief executive officer of Comme des Garçons International, said reaction to the line was positive thus far. “People want to buy them now, but we’re not selling [until Saturday],” he said.
