Comme des Carrés – another superb match

Comme des Garçons , Rei Kawakubo, is no stranger to collaborations, had teamed up with Azzedine Alaïa, Louis Vuitton, H&M, etc.Next February, she will be joining forces with Hermès on two luxe scarf lines. The limited-edition creations will be part of the French house’s Carré scarf collection and will be appropriately titled Comme des Carrés

Noir et Blanc, features five scarves with abstract black-and-white prints ($493 ) and will be available only at Comme des Garçons stores in Tokyo’s Aoyama neighborhood, New York, and Paris. The other, Couleur, contains six colorful scarves ($493–$2,076 ) and will be offered at Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market stores in London and Tokyo.

“During this joint project, rather than being guided by the idea of the scarf as it is worn, I became interested instead in the beautiful ‘artworks’ that the designs on Hermès carrés represent, and I sought to change them by adding elements,” Kawakubo told WWD. “By combining them with abstract images, we have transformed the carré and created a unique object.” The collection will “rewrite the traditional narratives of the carré,” said Hermès
