Last week Comme des Garçons opened their first Pocket shop in the US, located on 10th Avenue in New York, just off the High Line. The Japanese brand has been rolling out these small shops since 2007, offering a mix of wallets, perfume and items from the Play line in a more intimate neighbourhood retail environment.

Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Wide Collar Cotton Shirt

01. Made in Japan.
02. Collar detail.

Words

While I might admittedly prefer collars more prevalent in the 1940s and 1970s, you can't ignore the '80s forever. This shirt from Comme des Garçons Homme Plus looks like it was ripped straight out of the 1989 film Slaves of New York, with its classic silhouette and larger than life flourishes. It also doesn't hurt that the price seems to be from a bygone era as well.

Ganryu Nylon Bomber

01. Polyester padding.

Words

This season is the first time that the Ganryu line from Comme des Garçons has been made available via Dover Street Market's E-Shop. The collection always features an interesting mix of fabrics and textures, while achieving a nice balance between challenging silhouettes and easy to wear pieces. This nylon bomber falls into the latter category, making it one of my top choices from the brand's latest offering.

Comme des Garçons SHIRT Poplin Zip Shirt Jacket

01. Made in France.

Words

While Comme des Garçons is often associated with idiosyncrasy, rule-breaking and the avant-garde, the brand is also extremely good when it comes to simplicity. This piece from their SHIRT line is a prime example, striking a perfect balance between basic wearability and modernity. The classic one-pocket styling juxtaposed with a YKK-zipped front suggests forward-thinking design through a straightforward utilization of materials.

Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Spring-Summer '16

01. SS16 presentation.

Words

Of the three collections presented in Paris last week by Comme des Garçons, Homme Plus was a definite standout. From the intimate setting within an old, derelict apartment to the wonderful music, interesting pace, and subtle interaction of the models, it evoked a certain intrigue, drawing you into the clothing further. With a theme of "broken tailoring," Rei Kawakubo aimed to break down classic shapes and functionality, and through superior finishing and subtle detail, was able to create something that felt quite fresh.

Comme des Garçons Homme Dyed Cotton Canvas Sneaker

01

Image

01. Black.

Words

This season Comme des Garçons Homme have taken the classic All-Star silhouette and dyed the entire shoe in a selection of different colours. The black version looks best in my opinion, but it's an easy to wear summer sneaker no matter which option you prefer.
