COMME DES GARCONS
Under the label Comme des Garçons, Rei Kawakubo brought the Japanese avant-garde to the West in 1981. A Japanese fashion label whose French name translates to 'like the boys', Comme des Garçons loose, asymmetric, monochrome and deconstructed designs paved the way for conceptual fashion. It is said that one doesn't just look at Comme des Garçons clothing - you experience it. Since launching the initial mainline collection, Kawakubo has expanded the company to incorporate over 15 different lines, each offering something different whilst remaining true to Kawakubo's initial vision. Nicknamed "Comme Comme" this line is dedicated to basics and providing accessible pieces that still feature Kawakubo's intensive research and detailed deconstruction techniques.
