Two Berlin Boutiques: Lil*Shop and Wood Wood
Comme des Garçons opened their first of their "Guerilla" stores in 2004 in Berlin. It was supposed to stay open for one year, but how can you put an end to such a good thing? So the women who ran the Guerilla store opened Lil*Shop, which carries vintage Comme des Garçons, as well as special Nike products like Nike Vintage Running shoes. It's a nice place to shop.
Wood Wood has two stores in Copenhagen where they're based and one in Berlin. The store carries 40% Wood Wood, their clothing with crisp graphic prints for the whole family: men, women and kids. They also carry Bernhard Willheim, Kim Jones, sparkly Uslu Airlines make-up and just for the summer they have some special paint-splattered pieces by Oliver Rodriguez (see below left). Also, you can pick up fun magazines like Arkitip and Purple, the AKA series of graffiti books, Span of Sunset toys and skateboards.
