Guerrilla Store +1 213 proprietor Artist, Brett Westfall, and Comme des Garcons founder, Rei Kawakubo, recently got together for a collaborative venture for the Comme des Garcons Comme des Garcons collection for women. This extremely limited release is out now and is available at all Comme des Garcons’ stores worldwide, with the pieces making their way to Guerrilla Store +1 213 this month.
The inspiration for this joint venture comes from Brett Westfall’s ‘Sherf’ installation exhibition that was held at Kazuo HQ in Downtown Los Angeles in June 2007. Men’s versions of the shirts will be produced through Westfall’s Unholy Matrimony label and the release of these will coincide with the arrival of the women’s versions by Kawakubo and Westfall.
The Comme des Garcons Guerrilla Store +1 213 has put on some amazing functions since its occupation began back in February in Downtown Los Angeles, and another one will be held to celebrate the release of this particular collection. The original ‘Sherf/Fresh’ paintings will be exhibited at the release party and anyone is welcome to join. Details about this event will be released later on in the month.
