Opening Ceremony has just announced that its fall stock will pit Japanese designers vs. US ones. "Additionally, in both the New York and L.A. outposts, OC will host the 'Opening Ceremony presents Middle Space / Comme des Garcons shop' -- the entire CdG fragrance and wallet lines and selections from the Play collection will be on sale. Lastly but certainly not leastly, OC's teaming up with Sanrio (the brand behind Hello Kitty and Keroppi) for 'Opening Ceremony Loves Sanrio.' To spread the love, there will be pop-up Sanrio shopping stations throughout NY and LA." [Word Up!]
