Comme des Garçons AW2006 Deconstructed Glitter Blazer

250.00

It’s difficult to pinpoint how to surmise Comme Des Garçons. Launching in 1973, CDG initially caught attention for its bold rejections of what a women ought to look like. Rei Kawakubo’s work was characterized by draping 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 blazer features the best traits Comme des Garçons has grown to be lauded for. Brilliant tailoring, deconstruction, wild luxury - it holds a perfect balance. The distinguishing aspect of this piece is obviously its pattern: a grey houndstooth with a tasteful glimmer to it. In the right lighting, the glittered texture gives off a gorgeous sheen, one that stands out no matter the setting. It features the sort of unspoken flair that Rei Kawakubo has so gracefully perfected. Combined with the peak lapels and the frontal, curved slits that expose the underlying construction, this blazer is certainly not one to be ignored.
