H&M Comme des Garçons Sneak Peek

By Butterboom Writers  /  August 14, 2008

A brief glimpse into H&M’s upcoming collection.


As we posted back in April, H&M and Comme des Garçons are working on a special line together to be launched at H&M stores around the world this Fall. And above you are getting your first look at the collection:

The H&M collection includes a range of tailored jackets, many deconstructed, along with cropped pants, baggy shorts and a variety of skirts in stretch wool. On the perkier side are polkadot knits in jersey or merino wool, colorful shirts—some with dots—and a “showpiece” coat dress decorated here and there with dense Victorian ruffles. There are also accessories and a unisex perfume with notes of cedar and patchouli but, alas, no children’s wear, which H&M had promised when it announced the partnership this past April.

Look for this innovative collection at Hong Kong H&M stores in November. Read more about Rei Kawakubo’s design process on this collection here.
