Pre-dates his stardom, cartoonist Matt Groening‘s earlier work, Life in Hell, was the archetype to his later success, The Simpsons. A disturbed yet familiarly real of life, Life in Hell centered around Binky, a rabbit with an inclination of depressing thoughts, and his girlfriend Sheba. Filled with profanities, lewd acts, and sexual remarks, it was classic Groening before mainstream media got wind of his works. In an interesting turn of events, luxe clothing label COMME des GARçONS PLAY took in Groening’s original work as its inspiration for this season. The result, a limited collaborative series with the 2 caricatures at its focus. After a brief glimpse last year, COMME des GARçONS is set to make the collection available worldwide this week, starting with the City of Lights, Paris. The collection will be for sale tomorrow at the COMME des GARçONS Parisian flagship on 54 rue Fbg St. Honore before moving on to Dover Street Market the next day. Accompany each locations will also be a store installation to mark the launch. Like any CDG products, supplies are limited so be sure to get yours before they are gone.
