I was gonna blog about Calvin’s new boutique SEETHROUGH much earlier

I gave Calvin the lil Chat Noir post i got from Paris

Every time i called Calvin last year,
he’d be busy working on his new shop.

The boutique’s main interior consists of raw materials he wanted to clash with all his vintage furniture and items on display.

So he sourced
pipes
chains
corrugated zinc sheets
street lamps
red bricks
cargo boxes
and aluminum sign boards.
