H&M announced that the fall line-up this year is COMME DES GARÇONS.
(I was so hoping Marc Jacobs...to me Karl Lagerfeld had the best stuff, nothing ever compared)

COMME DES GARÇONS IN COLLABORATION WITH H&M THIS AUTUMN


Comme des Garçons’ founder and head designer Rei Kawakubo will create this autumn’s guest designer collection at H&M. Rei Kawakubo, famous and admired for her creativity and artistry, will design a women’s and a men’s collection, with some pieces for children too. Accessories and an exclusive unisex fragrancewill also be included in the collection.


"I have always been interested in the balance between creation and business. It is a dilemma, although for me creation has always been the first priority. It is a fascinating challenge to work with H&M since it is a chance to take the dilemma to its extreme, and try to solve it", says Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garçons.
“Rei Kawakubo has been at the top of our wish list for a long time and we are thrilled that she has chosen to collaborate with us. We have tremendous respect for Kawakubo’s fashion philosophy of questioning fashion’s ingrained patterns, and admire her artistic approach to design. We are particularly excited that the collection will be launched in Japan, Kawakubo’s native country, at the same time as the launch of our new store there", explains Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor, H&M.
The world launch of the collection will be at the opening of H&M’s second store in Tokyo, Japan, in the beginning of November. Launch date for other H&M markets will be a few days later.
Comme des Garçons Ltd was established in 1973 as a company based on creativity and originality. Always pushing the frontiers of design and never accepting the status quo, Comme des Garcons now produces 14 different brands and employs nearly 700 people, with shops in over 25 countries.

i'm really happy about this! i'm happy it's NOT marc jacobs, he's diluted his brand enough as it is, i haven't been excited by anything he's made in a long time.. cdg is much more interesting to me.

the best h&m designer collaboration was definitely stella mccartney, i still wear those shirts.

i love marc jacobs but i wouldnt want him just because i feel like that would take away from his actual brand.
