Hermès and Comme des Garçons collaborate for a scarf collection

Nov 27, 2012

Bali Barret, artistic director for women’s wear at Hermès has invited Rei Kawakubo to collaborate with the fashion house to create two capsule scarf collections. According to official descriptions, one series will be based on the theme of deconstruction, while the other will focus of the use of geometry. However, no design will be made public until the release of the scarfs say Hermès bosses. The collaboration, ‘Comme des Carrés’, will be available in Comme stores in February 2013.

"I have always had an immense respect for Hermès tradition and artisanal know-how," Rei Kawakubo declared to the press. “During this joint project, rather than being guided by the idea of the scarf as it is worn, I became interested instead in the beautiful ‘artworks’ that the designs on Hermès carrés represent, and I sought to change them by adding elements.éBy combining them with abstract images, we have transformed the carré and created a unique object,” added the 70 year-old designer.
