Comme des Garçons Homme Plus AW1988 Floral Sweater

Comme des Garçons Homme Plus AW1988 Floral Sweater


It is difficult to distill the empire that is Comme Des Garçons into one cohesive summary. Launched in 1973, CDG initially caught attention for its brash rejections of what a women ought to look like. Rei Kawakubo’s work was characterized by drapey black clothing, often harshly distressed. However, like many one-time punks, age has tempered its fury, and CDG has developed into a cultural powerhouse, with tendrils burrowed into every aspect of fashion and design. In 2017, Rei became to first living designer to receive an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art since Yves Saint Laurent in 1983.

This floral print served as the visual centerpiece for CDG’s fall 1988 collection, appearing in several different manifestations on sweaters, blazers, and other garments. It similarly purveyed the public zeitgeist, showing up in numerous contemporary editorials and on the backs of fashion-forward celebrities, including actor John Malkovich.
