Converse in collaboration with Japanese fashion house Comme Des Garcons released new special edition of All Star Chuck ‘70 sneakers with “peeking” heart logos. For this summer, Converse and COMME des GARÇONS have created exclusive four pairs of premium All Star Chuck 70 sneakers in high-top and ox silhouettes. The black and white designs are accented with the red heart logo which was created by New York-based graphic artist, Filip Pagowski, peeking out from behind the midsoles. Sneaker collection will be available for purchase starting Thursday, May 14 exclusively at Dover Street Market stores in both London and New York, COMME des GARÇONS New York and online at doverstreetmarket.com.
This collection reminds me of A Sleepy Hollow. Indeed, there is something mysterious in the latest Comme des Garçons secondary line, named Comme des Garçons Comme des Garçons. On a basic level, what we saw this season was the experimentation with layers, shapes and lengths. I would like to make a detailed review on the showcased hybrid outerwear, I like that idea of layering each body in luxe fabrics like wool and velvet. My personal favorites from the show are unstructured jackets, signature droppy pants, rumpled serge-stripe jackets. There is kind of retro functional dressing vibe, which makes these pieces standout. All in all, it's comfy, yet conceptual.
That's what I call elegant retro look: A velvet tailored jacket worn over ruched white blouse and relaxed skirt. The outfit is decorated with a nice bowl hat.
What's the fundamental part of a man's wardrobe? Rei Kawakubo behind Comme des Garçons Shirt says that it's a white shirt. The next Fall-Winter season comes with fundamental basics like shirts, jackets and pants. The next cold season features twisted classic styles, comfort and practicality. I personally find these options very fundamental and some of the showcased looks are quite uniform like to me. Look at those rolled and cropped shirts, that were printed with Disney characters and drawings of Mickey and his friends. This entire collections was made in collaboration with a French designer living in Tokyo. Love those double plackets, patchworking and ruffles.
Please welcome new Comme des Garçons Spring collection's menswear runway show. Creative director Rei Kawakubo showcased punk-inspired collection, which is full of trends and experiments. I personally like Kawakubo's experiments with tailored pieces, as she offers shirts with noisy cartoons, floral prints, tubular trousers, Bermuda shorts, ruched trousers, tailored jackets, tartan blazers, skirts, cutaway jackets, unique elongated shirts, skinny ribbed pants, punk suits, offset clean shirts, frock coats. There is something sophisticated in the way of how models are dressed in this particular collection, as they are clad in various dark dresses with elongated layers, somehow it reminds me of Gothic style or vampire and zombie touch.
Fairytale Rabbits and Mickeys. It feels like the Wonderland in the latest Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Autumn-Winter men's collection. Rei Kawakubo was inspired by iconic tale Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, as she sent male models down the runway in candy-hued pastels and rabbit/mickey mouse ears. Here you will see relaxed trousers, hooded tees, baggy shorts, casual tops and textured suiting.
Fluorescent Accessories. Japanese fashion label Comme des Garçons presents its women's wallet Spring-Summer collection, which is entitled "Fluo". I think this titled has risen because of its color. Here you will find purses, wallets, business card holders in different rich shades of blue, red, green and orange hues. I think it's the right way to overcome this cold winter season, as these accessories make you feel gaily.
Military Punk Style. Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Spring-Summer menswear collection consists of bold camouflage prints, metallic accents and uniform silhouettes. Label's designer Rei Kawakubo showcased full-length coats, gold pants and shirts, uniform shirts and trousers, finished with fluid coats, patched with leather, studs. Overall, collection reminded me punk style, as models appeared with bright orange hair and rock attitude.
