PAPER CHASE: Rei Kawakubo is collaborating with another surprising partner for her rotating “event” shop in Tokyo’s Aoyama district: Vogue Nippon. On May 28, Comme des Garçons and the fashion title will open a shop to mark Vogue Nippon’s 10th anniversary, billed as a magazine you can walk into — with a new theme, merchandise and exhibitions each month. Participants for the first month — in tandem with the manga-themed July issue — include Takashi Murakami, Chanel, Fendi, Loewe, Martin Margiela and Walter van Beirendonck. Kawakubo is charged with designing the space, and envisions a clash of energies from various designers and artists. The Vogue Nippon shop is slated to stay open until fall. The Aoyama shop was recently a showcase for Kawakubo’s collaboration on leather goods with Louis Vuitton.
