COMME des GARÇONS

Comme des Garcons

COMME des GARÇONS, meaning “like boys” in French, is a Japanese fashion label founded by Rei Kawakubo. Renowned for its avant garde aesthetic and unconventional silhouettes, Kawakubo transformed the brand into a successful fashion label. CDG is headquartered in Tokyo’s Aoyama district, with a strong worldwide presence. COMME des GARÇONS also includes many diffusion lines, such as PLAY, Noir, Homme Plus, Homme Plus Sport, SHIRT, Tricot and more. Later in 2004, CDG developed a market-based department store Dover Street Market, which stocks its main collections as well as its diffusion lines, among a variety of other designers and labels. The store also features art installations and interior designs by Kawakubo herself, among numerous other designers and artists.
