Comme des Garçons AW2002 Cuba Trucker Jacket

400.00

It’s 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.

These jeans employ a tropical color scheme and vintage comic book-style Cuban iconography to depict various interactions revolving around cigars. Cuban cigars were a symbol of quasi-illicit luxury during the embargo (U.S. president John F. Kennedy purchased 1,200 before sealing off the country), and remain one of their largest exports. This jacket was among the heavier pieces produced in a set that included a button down, t-shirt, sneakers, and jeans. Each piece was made with a vintage Americana-style cut.
