Rei Kawakubo Teams With Hermès for Scarves
Here is a fascinating project between renowned Comme des Garcons designer Rei Kawakubo and French fashion house Hermès that is certain to be one of the most highly anticipated releases to come in the near future. The “Noir et Blanc” and “Couleur” collections will feature special patterns by Kawakubo, who chose an artisanal focus to add to the Hermes legacy. The “Noir et Blanc” collection consists of five scarves, highlighted by black and white abstract patterns while the “Couleur” collection features six colorful designs, each of which interprets traditional patterns, emphasising the idea of history woven strongly into each Hermes piece. The “Couleur” collection will be exclusively available at Dover Street Market stores in London and Tokyo, while the “Noir et Blanc” will be available in London, Paris, and New York locations.
