Hermès International has revealed a glimpse of its collaboration with creative legend Rei Kawakubo on limited-edition silk carré scarves.
Announced late last year, the first collection features five scarves and is called “Black & White”. Comme des Garçons has removed the color from the patterns, allowing the prints to drift towards the abstract.
The second collection, Couleur, features six colorful scarves also including geometric elements like giant patchwork, gingham and shirt stripes.
Available exclusively from February 6 in Comme des Garçons shops (Aoyama-Tokyo, New York, Paris), from April 1 the Black and White collection will also go on sale online at www.doverstreetmarket.com
The “Noir et Blanc” editions will be priced at 380 euros, while the “Couleur” iterations will go for as much as 1600 euros.
Kawakubo has previously collaborated with Azzedine Alaïa, Louis Vuitton, and Speedo. Comme des Garçons also released a collection with H&M back in 2008.
