Comme des Garçons is one of the most influential fashion brands of all time. This Japanese brand became known in the 1970s, gaining global recognition through the extensive use of black and distressed fabrics, as well as stitching unfinished, often associated with punk culture.
Comme des Garçons’s label is conceptual fashion with deconstruction, asymmetry and monochromatic color schemes. Chief designer Rei Kawakubo’s work is renowned for its radical “anti-fashion” aesthetic and frequent forays into gender fluidity. The brand she established represents an innovative, intellectually potent force in the fashion world—never left the cutting edge. Comme des Garçons is keen on challenging and redefining the boundaries of beauty and fashion.
