In 2009 when Rei Kawakubo introduced Comme Des Garcons Black to the world in a effort to combat the economic recession it became an instant hit as the diffusion line married classic Rei aesthetics with interesting and boldly refreshing patterns, treatments, and textures. The line has continues to blossom and recently have release a staple piece they have showcased in the collection for sometime now, the dip dyed shirt. By taking gingham checked and tartam patterned shirt and overdying the top portion, we are given a new look at timeless classics. The docile nature of such traditional looks become aggressive as the dye treatment battles with the peeking underlying base pattern. They are currently available through RSVP Gallery and Comme Des Garcons Black retailers.
