About COMME des GARÇONS HOMME
Born out of a successful women's collection in 1973, Rei Kawakubo's fashion house, Comme des Garçons, first became popular in Japan and soon established itself on the world stage. Today, the Paris-based COMME des GARÇONS is acclaimed for creating innovative styles, brands, and products. In 1987, Japanese designer Junya Watanabe, a disciple of Kawakubo and a COMME des GARÇONS pattern maker, took charge of the COMME des GARÇONS tricot line before switching to designing the COMME des GARÇONS HOMME line alongside Rei Kawakubo herself. Embodying the artistic legacy of their creators, they fuse Watanabe's techno-couture perspective with Kawakubo's unstructured, gender-defying designs to create utilitarian, timeless pieces that exude a unique spirit.
