CDG Joins Alpha Industries for Two '70s Military Staples
The fishtail parka and the liner jacket.
COMME des GARÇONS diffusion line CDG is joining Alpha Industries for a military outwear capsule. Releasing is the FISHTAIL PARKA and the LINER JACKET, and while the liner has been present in the CDG range, this joint offering sees the expertise of Alpha Industries shine through via fit, construction, and small details — think of it as more of a more rugged version of the past releases.
The parka is a reproduction of a US military parka from the Alpha archives. This model was found in the ’70s – ’80s and has been updated with ribbed cuffs, front pockets, buttons, and sees a faux-fur hood. Those interested can find both launching on CDG’s online store on December 16 for a price of ¥86,500 JPY ($630 USD) and ¥29,700 JPY ($215 USD) for the FISHTAIL PARKA and LINER JACKET, respectively.
