A far cry from their overtly conceptual collections from their mainline, Comme des Garçons Shirt collection fixates on the practical (or perhaps mundane, from their perspective?) side of the overtly maximalist Japanese label. Does mundane have to mean boring? Not with Comme des Garçons – not ever.
For Spring/Summer 17′ we were presented with a selection of printed shirts, t-shirts, sweaters and a small brigade of the currently favoured satin souvenir jacket. In typical fashion, the label shared only a modicum of somewhat ‘vanilla’ pieces with their primary focus on print, slogans, panelling and details in a wide array of forms.
Seen somewhat as the wearable sideshow to it’s bigger, bolder brother Comme des Garçons Homme Plus; the collection did an exceptional job of watering down the conceptual, couture-ish (and borderline garish) prints and patterns seen at its sister label’s show. Similar patterns and prints transcended the collections, albeit in a far more wearable selection seen at CdGS than the alternative. Well… there always is the louder sibling, isn’t there?
