Supreme x Comme des Garcons SHIRT Collection

Once in a while, there will be a project that presents a paradigm shift for the industry as a whole. For Spring 2012, this collaboration between Supreme and COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT will be that project for the so-called street wear genre. Established back in 1973 by Japanese designerRei Kawakubo, COMME des GARÇONS (“Like Boys” in French) and its various subsidiaries have redefine fashion with its penchant for avant-garde silhouettes and styling found on the streets of Tokyo.

In its continue pursue of this hodgepodge concept of low-brow styles and couture designs, COMME des GARÇONS opened London’s highly successful Dover Street Market in 1988. It became the first few retail locations in Europe to offer Supreme products as well. In honoring this decades long partnership, both designed an exclusive capsule collection for the soon to open Dover Street Market Ginza. Comprised of button-down shirts, camp cap, VANS SK8-Hi, and VANS Era, all made to COMME des GARÇONS’ specifications. In addition, the collection includes hooded sweatshirts and tees in CDG’s signature polka-dot graphics via all-over print pattern.

All, except for the VANS editions, will be available at Dover Street Market Ginza during its opening this Friday, March 16th. The collection will also be available at Supreme retail locations in New York, Los Angeles, London, Japan, and its online store on the same day. Check out some of the collection below

DSM A Bathing Ape x Comme des Garcon PLAY Preview

Given the huge overlap in their consumer base and their similarly bold graphics, the only question at this point may be how did it take so long for this collaboration to happen? As soon as the news hit the internet of the A Bathing Ape x COMME des GARÇONS team up, a frenzied release was almost guaranteed. And while we don’t have word of a release date yet, we do have a preview of the upcoming collection to give you a feel for what to expect. Much like the ominous image accompanying the initial announcement, the t-shirts from the collaboration feature the respective logos of the two entities smashed together, like the infamous ape head above repping the wide eyed COMME des GARÇONS look.
