Weird. From May 19 to June 24, Basle will be hosting a Comme des Garçons guerilla store (via Metro | Basel). So, Basle seems to be a hip location after all, being in the same league as Glasgow, Hong Kong, Warsaw, Athens, Reykjavik, Cologne and Singapore. And, hey, we even have football skirmishes!!
At any rate, it is certainly no coïncidence that that store's opening period encompasses Art | 37 | Basel, which will bring oodles of artsy folk to our shores.
