Comme des Garçons x Hermès

07.02.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

What do you get when you combine one of the most influential designers from the East with one of the most prestigious luxury brands of the West? A limited edition line of silk scarves entitled Comme des Carrés to be exact.

Fusing together Rei Kawakubo’s eye for the all things off-kilter with Hermès’ reputation for craftsmanship and quality, the capsule collection is  comprised of five Black and White styles in everyone’s favourite non-colours, plus six Colour scarves printed with geometric patterns such as gingham and stripes. The former will be exclusive to Comme des Garçons stores in Paris, New-York and Aoyama-Tokyo, whilst the latter will be launched at the Dover Street Market retail venues in London and Tokyo.

“In our project together, rather than wanting to wear the scarves, I was looking forward to the change that would happen when I added something to the beautiful ‘paintings’ of Hermès scarf designs. I think through the addition of abstract images, we have transformed the scarf and created something new,” explains Kawakubo.

Mission most definitely accomplished.

French Windows

Making our way down one of London’s most beautiful shopping routes – Old Bond Street – this Hermès window stopped us in our tracks.

Photographed by Andrew Meredith and styled by Laura Kay – the pair have created a lovely lo-fi 3D effect with the covetable, colourful and classic Hermès scarves, incorporating them cleverly into the image itself. Twin says trés chic.
