While many of us patiently (or impatiently) await the opening of Rei Kawakubo’s retrospective show that’s happening next month at the Met, fans of her COMME des GARÇONS fashion label can rest a little easier with the recent unveiling of its latest collaboration with NYC skate imprint Supreme. The two brands are no strangers to working together, so it comes as no surprise that the collaboration’s eclectic range come with much attention to detail, and a tonne of fucking awesome. And thanks to photographer and stylist duo Hanna and Danny Moon, we get a glimpse at what’s in store, modeled by a couple of notables.
The range itself consists of t-shirts and hoodies complete with the iconic box logo, a lightweight polyurethane-coated fishtail parka, a cotton gabardine suit, a rayon shirt, coin pouches, wallets and the pièce de résistance: the Nike Air Force 1 Low. The designs for the pieces pull inspiration from Stephen J Shanabrook‘s set of ads for COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT’s 2010 spring/summer campaign, which saw a series of crumpled images taken from Shanabrook’s personal work titled Paper Surgery. The most obvious design however is clearly the all-over eye print, which you’ll find throughout the collection. For those looking to cop, the pieces will be available at Supreme online, and at its New York, Los Angeles, London, and Paris locations come April 13, and at Supreme’s Japan stores on April 15, as well as over at Dover Street Market New York, London, Ginza, Singapore and I.T Beijing Market.
