Here's the Story
You may be excused to think that Comme des Garcons is a French fashion label. Well, not everything that sounds French, is French. Comme des Garçons was born in Tokyo and is the brainchild of Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo. Kawakubo started designing in the late 1960s and took her fashion to the French catwalks in the early 80s. Never-before-seen cuts, impossible designs and heretofore unused for couture materials made sure that the collection received media attention - and accolades from fashion connoisseurs. Thirty years on, Comme des Garçons is still as fresh as in their early days. Although celebrating huge commercial success, Comme des Garcons prides itself on their trailblazing fashion and sales strategies. Rather than selling from a fashion headquarter in Paris, the label relies on guerilla stores that open in special venues. Luckily you can also shop for Comme des Garcons here on Shopstyle. Avantgarde Comme des Garçons sees fashion as art, and reinvents style every season. New and unprecedented designs break with the previous seasons - Comme des Garcons never stands still. As such, it is a label that embodies progressive thinking. It is the style of the avantgarde, fashion for free-thinking individualists who are a step ahead of the rest.
