The luxury brand, Comme des Garcons founded by Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo is a fashion house THAT takes pride in consistently going against the grain. It’s been around since 1973, but every new collection they unveil remains on the cutting edge of avant-garde style and fashion experimentation. A single Comme des Garcons shirt could feature separate panels of stripes, polka dots and even photograph prints – and somehow it all works. The line is also known for its organic pop-up shops and out-the-box collaborations with fringe visual artists and design houses. It’s this willingness to try new things and “mix & meld” that keeps CdG clothes forever fresh and new.
