Comme des Garçons

I remember going to the London store with Nellee Hooper in about 1992. It was definitely the most sacred store I’d been in yet. I was tiptoeing around and found it uncomfortable to speak to the personnel. They might catch the greedy look in my eye. In person, Rei reminded me of my grandmother — a much younger, Japanese version. She wad confident, calm, not falling for any pressure to take part in small talk or other social behaviors, not moving out of her integrity zone for others. i think she has definitely proved that it is possible to be that brave, that it is possible to jeep on’s integrity.
