The Comme Des Garçons brand was founded in 1969 by the eclectic Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo. One of the great innovative spirits of those times, the designer ushered in an absolutely unique style in which she managed to bring together the Japanese approach of her origins and the allure of Paris, her adoptive homeland. The great success of the brand led her to expand to other projects too, such as Comme Des Garçons Parfumes and Comme Des Garçons wallet.
