COMME des GARçONS - Official Web Site Launch


Despite a dreary, wet Friday, Freshness' office is abuzz with excitement when a few us received a mysterious email this morning. Sent from a generic email address, the email was a simple announcement that COMME des GARÇONS just created its official website. Indeed, the message was true after a few verification and confirmation, the venerable fashion label join the fray, finally. Loop in a continuously, the site is like a online viewing gallery, with collaborative works by artist Mondongo (2008), Quay Brothers (2009), and Ai Weiwei (of the Beijing Olympics Bird Nest Stadium fame) this year. Though thoroughly modern in their designs, it was said that Rei Kawakubo, Junya Watanabe and the rest of the CDG gang shun the Internet because of its irrepressible nature. Maybe that is about to change?
