Foamboy Monsters is an installation now found throughout many of the various Comme des Garcons stores. The designs were done by Niek Pulles, who used costumes that were originally supposed to be used for dancers.

Each mannequin is quite surreal, and avoids any type of traditional look. The designs actually appear more similar to something found out of a horror film than those that normally show up in a retail store. However, this is what makes the installation unique, and what will hopefully draw in potential customers walking by. Most of the "monsters" are done in a darker foam coloring, which adds to the ominous look of each mannequin.

Comme des Garcons is clearly not afraid to do something different when it comes to retail design.
