A Japanese brand breaking the normal fashion codes.
The Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo is one of the most influential people in the world of contemporary fashion, bringing her own unique style to her collections. It was in 1969 that she decided to found the brand Comme Des Garçons. The innovative style, far removed from all the well-known codes of Western fashion in force at the time make this brand something of an oddball. Notions of beauty, silhouette and clothes are comprehensively called into question. The idea, here, is unlike all other brands, to steer clear of current trends and create a distinctive style. Quickly, the brand made a foray into jewellery and into menswear collections. Success came to the label almost immediately.
Collections of sweaters, cardigans and sweatshirts to modernise men's wardrobes.
Since 1978, Comme des Garçons has also been designing for the guys out there. As is the case for the brand overall, the sweaters, cardigans and sweatshirts are marked by abundant use of the colour black, asymmetry and the deliberately worn look of certain pieces. There are cardigans with a plain background and asymmetric motifs and pairings of colours and prints that do not necessarily go together. Men who dress at Comme des Garçons have to be very comfortable with the off-kilter style and happy to cultivate their difference for the chemistry to take effect. For anyone a little less extrovert, there are also more classic, mono colour designs.
