A blast of green energy. An evocation of the lush exuberance of nature. A fusion of green notes and gunpowder. Top notes of verdant, natural wild leaves, settle with an elemental heart of flint and coriander to finish with a smoky explosion of gunpowder and white musk.
Comme Des Garcons is the exalted Japanese label headed up by designer Rei Kawakubo, - Kawakubo is regarded by many in the fashion industry as a genius. Trading since 1969, the label is respected internationally as an avant-garde tour de force and creative empire which sprawls far further than the mainline collections.
Comme Des Garcons is French for ‘like the boys’, a name that reflects the design aesthetic of mixed masculine and feminine motifs, as well as the often playful overtones.
Rei’s modus operandi is to always try to create something new; to make clothes which have never been made before. Comme Des Garcons pieces are often deconstructed and ‘distressed’ or left ‘unfinished’.
Today the Comme Des Garcons brand encompasses both fashion and fragrances with a host of sub brands including PLAY, an irreverent and fun collection of street style garments, and SHIRT which is dominated with tailored items. These sit alongside the mainline collections and fragrance line. Comme Des Garcons is worn by men and women with an eclectic style stance.
The Comme Des Garcons Fragrance Collection, much like the rest of the brand, is avant-garde and unexpected. A collection of fragrances known for their innovation, quality and divergence from the norm.
