COMME des GARÇONS and Vans are no strangers to collaborative kicks, having offered up various iterations of the Vans Authentic over the years. Now, the youthful CDG sub-label is getting in on the auction, launching a different sneaker model alongside a set of timely graphic layering pieces.
For the first time, a COMME des GARÇONS sub-label is remixing the Vans Lampin, serving up a monotone shoe emblazoned with the familiar all-over CDG branding. Black leather graces the upper in the familiar Lampin shape, with a plush lining and silver eyelets underlining the premium motif. Accompanying the new shoe is a set of black-and-white (naturally) hoodies and sweaters ringing in the new year. The stacked “CDG” text appears on each item, accented by a metallic gold “2020” for an extra hit of visual interest.
Meanwhile, Dover Street Market celebrated its 15th anniversary with plentiful “MONOCHROMARKET” exclusives.
