Since 1969, designer Rei Kawakubo has redefined what to expect from the fields of high fashion and luxury with her seminal label, Comme Des Garçons.
From punk inspired anti-fashion to opulent avant garde conceptualism to redefined basics, Comme Des Garçons output may vary from collection to collection, but the individualistic spirit, uncompromising quality and masterful construction are permanent hallmarks of the Comme Des Garçons label.
No prizes for guessing; Comme Des Garçons SHIRT is an offshoot collection that pays particular attention shirts, although other garments and accessories are released under the SHIRT banner. The true focus, rather than any one specific garment, is the juxtaposition of casual, ready to wear, effortless style, with carefully considered and meticulously crafted elements like bold, off-kilter colors and patterns, patchwork construction and shape.
