rei kawakubo x hermes comme des carres collection teaser 1

Commes des Garçons’ lead designer and founder Rei Kawakubo has partnered with Hermès on two limited-edition collections of silk scarves, which the pair will launch under the Comme des Carrés label. While Kawakubo may be shy herself, you can be sure that these scarves will be anything but reserved. The first half of the Collection is the “Noir et Blanc” line, which includes five abstract-patterned black and white scarves that will be sold exclusively through Comme des Garçons stores in New York, Paris, and Tokyo. The second half of the collaborative release will be dubbed “Couleur” and will feature six scarves filled with hot color tones and designs; these will be sold only through Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market stores in London and Tokyo. The entire Comme des Carrés Collection will arrive in stores in early February for $493 and $2,076, respectively, from each collection. While we don’t have any preview shots of the collection (it is a teaser, after all), you can still get your hands on a TASCHEN published book honoring her work or the Stool 60 she co-designed with Artek.rei kawakubo x hermes comme des carres collection teaser 11
