(NEW YORK) Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garçons' media-shy founder, is joining forces with Hermès. The avatar of avant-garde has whipped up two limited-edition collections of silk scarves entitled "Comme des Carrés". First up? “Noir et Blanc," a line of five abstract-patterned black and white scarves sold exclusively in the Comme des Garçons stores in New York, Paris, and Tokyo’s Aoyama neighborhood for €380 ($493). “Couleur,” a zesty line of six hot-toned carrés, will follow; those will be stocked at Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market stores in London and Tokyo and retail between €380 and €1,600 ($2,076). Both collections will bow in stores in early February.
Kawakubo has a number of collabs already under her belt, namely Azzedine Alaïa, Louis Vuitton, H&M, Fred Perry, Moncler, Paco Rabanne, Stephen Jones, Peggy Moffitt, and Speedo.
