ABOUT COMME DES GARÇONS
Comme des Garçons, translated as “like the boys” in French, brings avant-garde fashion into the mainstream with deconstructed looks, gender-bending styles, and asymmetrical cuts. Founded by Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo in 1969 in Tokyo, the brand debuted internationally with a subversive, monochromatic collection at Paris Fashion Week in the 1980s. Well-regarded for their highly conceptual collections in all-black, unfinished seams, and distressed fabrics, the brand has maintained its punk image throughout the decades.
Today, Kawakubo continues to redefine fashion through sister collections Comme des Garçons Comme des Garçons, which elevates the everyday capsule wardrobe, and Comme des Garçons Play, the bestselling signature streetwear line known for its heart-eyes graphic logos emblazoned on t-shirts, Converse sneakers, sweaters and more. Nonconformist collections like Comme des Garçons Homme Deux and Homme Plus continue to defy expectations, highlighting dualisms in each innovative piece, while Comme des Garçons Shirt takes everyday wardrobe staples and reinvents them with an irreverent edge. Explore tailored blazers, deconstructed shirts, pants, and skirts designed in Aoyama, Tokyo, as well as surprising knitwear, ruffled pieces, and unconventional silhouettes that are sure to stand out in your wardrobe.
Worn by celebrities including Björk, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Tilda Swinton, and more, Comme des Garçons is embraced worldwide for pushing boundaries in fashion.
