yes, it’s happening. hermes and creative director/genius rei kawakubo of comme des garçons are collaborating. two lines of the capsule collection for hermes, will be a range of collectible silk scarves.
“I have always had an immense respect for Hermès tradition and artisanal know-how,” she said, adding “During this joint project, rather than being guided by the idea of the scarf as it is worn, I became interested instead in the beautiful artworks that the designs on Hermès represent – and I sought to change them by adding elements. By combining them with abstract images, we have transformed the carrés and created a unique object.”
