Following the off-kilter Nike Presto Foot Tent, COMME des GARÇONS HOMME Plus with its debut Jordan Brand collaboration, centering around what appears to be a remastered Air Jordan 1. Though the all-black sneaker, with its shin-high tongue and new chain-link strap, is impressive, its a mere footnote (pun not intended) in one of designer Rei Kawakubo‘s strongest recent menswear collections.

Clearly inspired by the moodiness of ’70s and ’80s goth culture, the models sported heavy black eye makeup and heavily-shaped hair, with plenty of all-black, harness-heavy looks appearing throughout. Tailored blazers and coats were cut from velvet, nibbled by moths or styled over dresses emblazoned with chaotic monochrome illustrations. Leather chaps and fishnet base layers drew influence from the androgynous bent of musicians like Siouxsie Sioux, Robert Smith, Sid Vicious and Marc Almond, with fringe and barbed wire-print underlining the nods to glam and punk alike.

Check out the collection above.

Elsewhere, BLACK COMME des GARÇONS debuted its collaborative Nike Footscape Motion.
