Also known as Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo’s brainchild, Comme des Garçons is one of the most influential brands to ever emerge in the fashion world, even having its own MET Gala theme back in 2017. ‘CDG,’ under Comme des Garçons recently unveiled a new line called ‘Breaking News,’ an explosion of logomania and colorful graphic tees. And the best thing about it is, you can get your hands on it cause it’s available here in Manila!
In honor of their 5th year here in the Philippines, Comme des Garçons houses its capsule collection in One Rockwell, Makati and here are our top picks:
1. THE GRAPHIC TEES FROM ‘BREAKING NEWS’
Upgrade your regular style staple, the white shirt by opting for these bright and colorful tees in collaboration with contemporary artist Adam Lucas, and cult streetwear brand Anti-Social Social Club.
2. THE PVC PLASTIC PAPER TOTE BAG
Another street style favorite, CDG’s PVC plastic paper tote bag has been on the ‘gram for several months now. It’s material is versatile enough to brave Manila’s bipolar weather, rain or shine.
3. THE TRIPLE LOGO COACH JACKET
A classic piece from CDG, the coach jacket is the brand’s take on logo mania and has two color ways-in white and in pink.
4. THE PEAKING HEART EYES
The most well-known signature from the label, it’s CDG’s cartoonish heart eyes emblazoned on shirts, shoes and even their own fragrance broke barriers and catapulted the brand into mainstream consciousness.
5. THE CLEAR VINYL SHOPPING BAG
This one’s a risky trend to pull off since Manila isn’t exactly the safest place to wear a clear see-through bag. But its futuristic feel and material makes it practical for those quick shopping run-ins.
Comme des Garçons is available in One Rockwell, Makati.
