Comme des Garçons is marking its 40th anniversary by bringing out a guerrilla-style, temporary brand called “Black” that epitomizes the style, the inventiveness and the originality of its founder, Rei Kawakubo. Here is an inside look at Mrs. Kawakubo’s partnership with Vogue Nippon.
Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo's stark, architectural pants, jackets, and button-front shirts are staples of the fashion elite. Expensive, eccentric, and conceptual fashion. I echo the sentiments of Russ W. and others who attest to the quality of the construction. I have shit that's 10 years old and still going strong. The clothes are breath-taking both the fashion and the price.Elaborate evening jackets and raincoats can be worn over structured vintage denim skirts.For men, shirts, suits, knits, and outerwear come in classic fabrics and colors, but they’re far from basic. Coats from the Homme Plus line are $1,295 to $1,950. Jackets by Junya Watanabe start at $1,000.
