Fans of avant-garde visionary Rei Kawakubo can now score archival Comme des Garçons pieces on luxury retailer Farfetch
Farfetch celebrates the opening of Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between Costume Institute Exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art with a throwback tribute to the renowned clothing brand. Partnering with Comme des Garçons archive boutique Dot Comme, Farfetch has shot a visually arresting editorial spread that you can check out on the retailer's platform here. The shoot highlights both current and archival pieces that you can buy from Farfetch—including an AW12 red 2D felt ensemble, a SS14 futuristic calico loop dress; and for men's, a skull-print jacket from SS11 and checkerboard suit from SS01.
Melbourne-based founder of Dot Comme, Octavius La Rosa's collection of vintage Comme des Garçons is truly an impressive feat to behold. He has been sourcing the brand's archival pieces from across the globe for over a decade now—fueled by his obsession with Comme des Garçons that started when he was 18. "I’ve got many pieces from the very beginning – around 1975. Also an extensive archive [from the] eighties. The most famous are some padded pieces from SS97, and a number of the 2D show pieces from AW12."
