Comme des Garçons taps nine designers for holiday collection

Just like every year, Comme des Garçons has launched its Happy Holidays capsule to celebrate the holidays and the New Year. This time round, the brand's founder Rei Kawakubo has tapped nine of the most sought-after designers on the fashion scene at the moment: Alessandro Michele for Gucci, Riccardo Tisci for Burberry, Maison Margiela, Jean Paul Gaultier, Walter Van Beirendonck, Simone Rocha, Craig Green, Marine Serre and Stüssy.

Each one has come up with an iconic product reinterpreted through the prism of the Japanese brand. Although most of the designers have opted for a t-shirt, including Jean Paul Gaultier, who has revisited his breton striped top with red dots, the capsule also offers a tartan Burberry scarf and a Gucci shopper bag in plastic-coated brown paper featuring the brand's famous green and red stripes. 

For the creative partnership,  Maison Margiela has contributed a new version of the white t-shirt that the OTB-owned label has released every year since Autumn/Winter 1994 to support the fight against AIDS.
