COMME des GARÇONS has released a limited-edition collection titled “EMERGENCY Special,” which is set to release inline with the re-opening of retail stores in France and alongside a reservation program in Japanese outposts.
Each COMME des GARÇONS store in Japan will allow customers to shop via appointment only and in limited numbers. However, to celebrate the re-openings, the Rei Kawakubo-helmed label has worked on a collection that centers around positive phrases, reminding us of the good causes behind staying at home and taking mass social action to combat the coronavirus crisis.
As a result, T-shirts, windbreaker jackets and tote bags have been emblazoned with the phrases “believe in a better tomorrow,” “thinking and doing will result in the future,” and “on to the future, with good energy.” The text is presented in a hand-applied look, looking as if it could be found on a homemade sign.
The collection ranges from approximately $47 USD to $130 USD, and can be ordered exclusively through the COMME des GARÇONS stores detailed below.
In other news, END. and NEEDLES have teamed up for a paisley-themed capsule.
