Rei Kawakubo, the founder of fashion label Comme des Garçons, has teamed up with Hermès to design two collections of silk scarves.
Rei Kawakubo, the publicity-shy founder of avant-garde label Comme des Garçons, has teamed up with Hermès to create two limited-edition collections of the French brand's iconic silk scarves, or carrés, as they are better known.
Named Comme des Carrés, the collaboration will hit stores in February. The first collection, "Noir et Blanc", will feature five scarves in various black-and-white designs and be sold exclusively in Comme des Garçons stores in Tokyo's Aoyama neighbourhood, New York and Paris. The second, "Couleur", will be more colourful and stocked at both the London and Tokyo branches of Dover Street Market.
