COMME des GARçONS BLACK   Holiday 2009

Rei Kawakubo is never quite one to shy away from the element of surprise, in fact, COMME des GARÇONS as an entirety thrives on being the odd one out and celebrates creativity with bravado. For the temporary and wallet friendly diffusion line, COMME des GARÇONS BLACK which was launched earlier this year, COMME des GARÇONS takes the most interesting plays on the classic non-color, black, and puts an incredible spin on basics. For Holiday 2009, COMME des GARÇONS takes some of this year’s favorite items such as the plaid button down and nautical striped tees, and re-brands them in black. Unlike your usual fades and color blocks, the items look like it has been defaced deliberately in black, but without success as the plaid and stripes are still visible through a wash of black. Striped tees have a translucent overlay of black, and the bottom part of the tees remain untouched to reveal what the original pattern looks like. The same goes for plaid button downs that come in a variety of shades. Count on Rei Kawakubo to put the simplest touches on items but turn out something unexpected– put a spin on your usual basic tops and pick up a conversation worthy piece this holiday. via: ArtSchoolVets
