Werk #12 Guerrillazine 3

The third issue of the Guerrillazine series. These magazines present a collection of imagery of the Comme des Garçons Guerrilla stores in this atypical visual magazine format. Created by graphic designer Theseus Chan. A rare collectors item. The Guerrilla stores were a revolutionary retail project by Comme des Garçons that saw ‘pop up’ style stores from 2004-2009 more than a decade before they became popular. Temporary Guerrilla boutiques ‘Anti-concept concept stores’ were erected around Europe in unlikely places that had previously not been considered as fashion hubs. Such as Istanbul, Helsinki, Berlin, Reykjavik, Ljubljana and Barcelona among others. The stores experimented with low-cost store fronts with the interiors also having a low-cost, homemade type of feel, much like the design of Guerrillazine. The cover and edges are colored with fluorescent spray, and the edges are also unfinished. There are four colors that have surfaced, this is a green copy.
