Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Mastermind

Launched in 1981, Comme des Garçons Homme Plus is the Japanese brand Comme Des Garçons’ menswear line. Rei Kawakubo pursues the work she started in 1969: a perpetual search for a divergent, unpredictable beauty, based on a monochromatic palette, deconstruction and asymmetry. Reinventing the everyday suit, she stretches jackets down to knee-lengths, adds polka dots to her derbies, and even takes on military uniforms, with ripped pants and wide shorts, all impeded in a formal and sophisticated esthetic.
