COMME des GARÇONS and Hermès are set to release the first installment of their “Comme des Carrés” project this week. This ‘Black and White’ scarf collection includes five printed scarves which feature representations of both brands with Hermès’ equine graphics and COMME des GARÇONS’ patterned artwork. The scarves will be available this week at COMME des GARÇONS retail locations in Paris, New York and Tokyo, as well as Dover Street Market Ginza and London.
News on the collaborative collection between Hermes and Commes des Garcons. The subject says it all in the title of their special fashion week invite: “Comme des Carrés,” Hermes Meets Comme des Garçons.” February 7 looks to be the first look day at work bringing together the French and Japanese fashion houses.
The first part of this season’s highly anticipated collection from Junya Watanabe sees the Comme des Garcons designer working with French workwear studio Hervier, recreating a number of classic silhouettes in Junya’s typically innovative and considered style. Utilising archive fabrics the collection introduces a number of new ideas to heritage pieces such as work jackets and hooded parkas, with the addition of corduroy collars and pocket panels, as well as contrasting paisley linings. Junya continues his long running collaboration with Levi’s, with a stunning take on a classic denim jacket. This archive jacket has been given a work wear twist, with the additional of several stitched panels, a cord collar and leather chest pocket. The jacket is finished with a typically Junya checked wool panel insert on the back.
