BLACK COMME des GARÇONS has officially dropped online for the first time at Dover Street Market. The esteemed Rei Kawakubo-designed subdivision was originally created in 2008 in response to the global financial crisis, offering CDG garments at a more affordable price point.
For the first time ever, the entire BLACK line is available to shop online. This means that alongside its Nike collaborations — comprised of a Waffle Racer, Footscape, Blazer High and Low, as well as garments such as T-shirts — customers can now pick up avant-garde pieces ranging from minimalistic outerwear to interpretive tailoring staples and more.
Some of the standout pieces in the BLACK COMME des GARÇONS collection include a variety of harness and buckle-equipped shirts, the pair of heavy-twill balloon trousers, a bag that’s made from vintage T-shirts — making each piece unique — and its range of treated denim options.
Elsewhere we see a range of graphic T-shirts, with some sporting a design inspired by roads and road signs, as well as others featuring a large print of raised “resistance fists.”
Take a look at the entire BLACK COMME des GARÇONS collection in the gallery above, and shop everything online now on Dover Street Market’s website.
