Rei Kawakubo teams up with Hermès to design two limited edition scarf,out in February.
‘I have always had an immense respect for Hermès’ tradition and artisanal know-how,’ Kawakubo told WWD. ‘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 carrés represent, and I sought to change them by adding elements. By combining them with abstract images, we have transformed the carré and created a unique object.’
The Comme des Carrés collections will also be available online from February 6 for the Colour range and April 1 for the Black and White line.
