40 years Comme des Garçons


Luxury Japanese label Comme des Garçons is marking its 40th anniversary. The company is launching a temporary, guerrilla-style collection called Black, "harnessing the style, edge and the originality of its founder", said the Herald Tribune's Suzy Menkes.

CdG's founder and creative director Rei Kawakubo (aged 66) created Black as the colour of fashion’s rebel yell.

“It is true to say that I ‘design’ the company, not just clothes,” Ms. Kawakubo told the Herald Tribune. “Creation does not end with just the clothes. New interesting business ideas, revolutionary retail strategies, unexpected collaborations, nurturing of in-house talent, all are examples of Comme des Garçon’s creation.”

Inspiring.

That's the way to do it! And she is not only doing it herself, but offering all her wisdom to us. Inspiring.

Too bad the Black Collection will be nowhere to be seen here in Greece. Not that I blame her...

Reading your post I had a flashback and suddenly I started singing Nikos Karvelas' song : "Τα θέλω όλα όλα όλα ή τίποταααα!!"
