COMME des GARÇONS taps French glass artisans Baccarat for a special collaborative event. To welcome summer, the duo are launching a pop-up with a special edition piece of stemware.

Having recently dipped into the world of Japanese fashion courtesy of fragment design, Baccarat is no stranger to inventive creations. This collaboration, however, isn’t a new shape — instead, COMME des GARÇONS tweaks one of the classic Baccarat creations.

The Harcourt wine glass has remained a staple of Baccarat’s line-up since the brand was founded in 1841, simultaneously highlighting the house’s knack for elegant design and its equisite attention to detail. Sleek lines inform the glass, arcing down onto a brilliantly simple hexagonal base. COMME des GARÇONS’s collaborative edition places branding on the base and CdG’s preferred polka dots across the bowl, yielding a glass that is equal parts progressive and classic.

Joining the ¥46,000 JPY (approximately $415 USD) Harcourt glass, commemorative T-shirts will drop at the special event hosted inside COMME des GARÇONS Aoyama, which begins May 31.

In the meantime, read up on Honey Dijon’s forthcoming COMME des GARÇONS collaboration.
