Comme des Garçons

Comme des Garçons brought Japanese avant-garde to the West in 1981 with its groundbreaking Paris début, introducing deconstruction, asymmetry, and monochromatic color schemes as a new paradigm for conceptual fashion. Head designer Rei Kawakubo’s creations have since maintained a reputation for their radical 'anti-fashion' aesthetic and frequent forays into gender fluidity--their penchant for challenging and redefining the boundaries of beauty and fashionability.
