Designer Rei Kawakubo is the figurehead of Comme des Garçons, which is now a design empire – Kawakubo is regarded by many in the fashion industry as a genius. The often avant-garde and always influential label was created by Kawakubo in Tokyo in 1969 before heading to Paris in 1981 where it garnered both acclaim and controversy with a debut collection of distressed and deconstructed pieces. The modern Comme des Garçons brand, which encompasses an entire family of sub-brands in fashion and fragrance, is worn by men and women with an esoteric style stance.
Comme des Garçons’ experimental aesthetic is demonstrated by the silhouette and construction of this jacket. Designed with a high-low hem, this piece is characterized by its textured finish and distressed mesh panels.
Widely renowned for their playful take on silhouettes, Comme des Garçons presents this hooded jacket from the brand’s SS22. With an oversized hood and short puff sleeves, it demonstrates the brand’s penchant for unconventional structures.
Comme des Garçons’ boastful and playful approach to garments is channeled for SS22 in pieces like these black drop-crotch track pants. Adorned with a fluorescent pink stripe at the sides, they sit high at the waist for an unexpected refined touch on their sportswear-inspired silhouette.
