COMME des GARÇONS CDG Drops 1986 Staff Coat Crafted From Wool & Nylon
The signature “Printemps-Été 1986 COMME des GARÇONS” text graces the rear.
Comme’s now-signature Staff Coat originated in the 1980s when its founder, Rei Kawakubo, took the idea of an atelier’s lab coat and transformed it into a runway piece for off-duty models and staff to wear, sporting the show date and house logo on the rear. Today, CDG presents the 1986 Staff Coat, which combines a long-line woolen construction with nylon sleeves.
There is no branding on the front, just a simple row of black buttons running down the middle from the neck to the hem. On the reverse you’ll find the iconic “Printemps-Été 1986 COMME des GARÇONS” stamp in white. Previous editions offered striped sleeves and a more breathable body, making this version ideal for cooler temperatures.
