This past week, we saw a few of our favorite stores relocate or remodel and new pop-ups and doors open. We’re not short on a list of art exhibits or performances to visit this weekend either — all in Paris, London, New York, LA, Copenhagen and more.
See our other weekend travel guides here.
Beams looks to Parisian store Le Bon Marche to open up the kind of shop-in-shop we’ve always dreamed of. Look for product from multiple in-house lines including Beams Plus, Beams T, Remi Relief and a kid’s range for parents who need matching mini outfits. It’s never too early.

NEW YORK: The Sound of COS Installation
Two sound artists give us a sensual experience with COS‘ Fall/Winter 2014 collection. Creating noise for footsteps and the ruffling of clothes with basketballs, bicycles, gloves and other odd objects of the like, we get an amazingly compelling 70 seconds of film. The short movie will be screened with a public installation from tomorrow, September 6 through September 12.

NEW YORK: “Snoopy & Belle In Fashion” Exhibit
Our favorite Peanuts character is back in style at New York’s New Museum sporting the likes of Calvin Klein, Opening Ceremony and Rodarte. Entitled “Snoopy & Belle in Fashion,” (Belle is Snoopy’s sister) the playful show will run for a short two days from September 8 through 10 and then head to cities like Paris, Tokyo and Moscow.
ATAMI: “Hokusai: 36 Views of Mount Fuji” Exhibit

LONDON: Rick Owens Takes Over Selfridges
Selfridges, a London High Street mainstay, opens its doors to the world of Rick Owens with four powerful window displays, exclusive garments and a 25-foot sculpture of Owens himself.

COPENHAGEN: The Hotel SP34 Design Guest House
118 rooms with two restaurants, two bars, terraces, courtyards and a private cinema, the aesthetic echoes ’50s Scandinavian design with a contemporary edge. Plenty of worn-in leather, moulded wood, brass panels, floor-to ceiling-windows, white tiles and clever lighting in every room.

LONDON: Goodhood’s New Space
Goodhood, a longstanding favorite in the office, shut down their original space earlier this year with ambitious plans of a bigger and better retail experience. The new boutique, still in Shoreditch, is home to the full men’s and women’s collections, design and home objects and an all-new coffee shop called “Commune.” From the looks of it, we think they went above and beyond. See the full space here.
