Apr 26, 2017
Farfetch has teamed up with Melbourne-based boutique Dot Comme to pay homage to Rei Kawakubo and Comme des Garçons, the subjects of this year’s Met Gala and spring fashion exhibition.
Ahead of the opening of ‘Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between’ on 4 May, Farfetch has released an interview and editorial shoot with Dot Comme’s founder, Octavius la Rosa, who owns one of the most highly regarded collections of archive Comme des Garçons pieces in the world.
As part of the partnership, a number of Dot Comme’s archival pieces are now available on Farfetch, including a padded checked blouson poncho and skirt set from the Spring Summer 1997 collection, a 2D paper doll jacket from Autumn Winter 2012 and a love heart cut out dress from the Autumn Winter 2008 collection.
Another standout piece is a yellow and black wool fringed tartan jacket and mini skirt set from Comme des Garçons’ 2000 AW collection.
"I am very pleased that we can provide a platform that allows us to share with everyone in the world the collection I have collected through partnership with Farfetch,” said Octavius la Rosa.
