Comme des Garcon + Beatles

Rei Kawakubo, so much more than a bag designer

Rei Kawakubo founded Comme des Garcon, the anti-fashion, austere, sometimes deconstructed garments fashion line. You know, the heart cardigan that Kanye and Drizzy rock. She did a H&M collabo back in 2008. Remember?

For Rei Kawakubo’s hotly anticipated collaboration with The Beatles, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree… Yes please 🙂 I love bags that are interesting because they are great conversation starters. BUT I’m just wondering if everything slides to the slant when you carry this bag. Ummm. I am all about optical illusions but I wouldn’t want to be a banana squished at the bottom of this apple bag.

Kawakubo respected Sir Paul McCartney’s request that none of the bags be made of leather, so all pieces feature printed PVC or embossed polyurethane. Items in the line will sell for $115 (for a t-shirt) to $860 (for a higher-end bag), and they’ll start selling at the Trading Museum in Tokyo on Nov. 20.  You want one?
