Recognised as an internationally successful fashion label which was founded in 1969 by Japanese designer Kawakubo, the Comme des Garcons name stands for sensational pret-a-porter collections with exclusive style. The black colour, with the fashion empire’s name, broke the taboo and was declared a colour suitable for every day. Since then “Comme des Garçons” has grown into an internationally-renowned multi-label business, offering more than just copied fashion. Clothes are a form of art. As well as various fashion collections, designer Kawakubo began in 1994 to concentrate on a range of fragrance which are defined by their unusual ingredients.
