L’homme qui a inventé l’odeur du linge qui sèche au soleil, l’odeur de la photocopieuse en surchauffe ou d’une voiture laissée dans un garage, le voilà : Christian Astuguevieille, 62 ans depuis peu, promène des airs de dandy anglo-saxon et rien, en apparence, de révolutionnaire. C’est pourtant lui, depuis 1994, qui imprime à la marque japonaise Comme des garçons un univers olfactif aussi avant-gardiste que les propositions vestimentaires de sa créatrice Rei Kawakubo.

Outside of the more graphic oriented COMME des GARÇONS PLAY, the Japanese label has a huge range of grown up pieces that focus a bit more on the art of constructing fine garments in the form of the COMME des GARÇONS MAN range. In that vein, Junya Watanabe has been a proponent of the patchwork look for a minute now, approaching everything from denim to button-ups with the extended cut and sew styling. The latest piece to get the treatment is this crewneck sweater, coming in a simple heather grey that boasts a warm fuzzy lining on the inside. As always, the Japanese made piece from COMME des GARÇONS MAN opts for the finest of materials. Stick with us after the jump for the full look at the Junya Watanabe COMME des GARÇONS MAN patchwork crew sweat, which can be had now at NORSE STORE online.
Chris: That was a really special moment. And Dover Street Market, when they first bought us. Rei Kawakubo’s husband Adrien Joffe came in and bought the collection. I’m not really daunted by people, but we had just started and that was intense. I had a little panic attack!

DJs Andy Butler and Whitney Fierce planned to spin tunes at the after party at the Social Club — provided Butler keeps track of his personal effects. “I lose everything,” he moaned, pulling out a gold wallet. “I bought this Comme des Garçons wallet because I know that if I leave it in the taxi, I will see it.” Butler blamed his absentmindedness on a slew of projects: He is producing tracks for British singer Little Boots, in addition to EPs for Hercules & Love Affair, featuring Fierce as guest singer.

In Milan last week the autumn/winter men’s wear shows delivered the kind of high luxury that theoretically appeals to wealthy consumers from the Bric countries.

Then there was Dries Van Noten, where the eponymous designer dubbed his collection of colourful patterned suits, inspired by the Dutch artist Gijs Frieling, “psychedelic elegance”, with more extreme challenges to convention taking the form of tights with kilts at Givenchy and schoolgirl’s skirts under posh public school punk blazers at Comme des Garçons.
Faux-Nazi red drapes, rave scene smiles and metal dinosaurs; the Chapman Brothers have taken over the windows at daring Mayfair fashion store, Dover Street Market.
In Paris, the most engaging shows asked simple questions: How can high fashion seem dynamic? How can a sense of masculine grace that doesn’t feel retro be created?
Filmmaker John Waters and an entourage of friends spent Saturday afternoon gallery hopping in the Lower East Side and Chelsea.
No costumes or copies -- but items from the past like evening tail coats and narrow pants are enriching the men's wear future.

it was about edgy sihouettes. The kind made famous by Japanese designers like Issey Miyake and Rei Kawakubo, who also show in Paris.

3. Praise the Lord. While attending Christmas church service at the Kanehoe Bay Marine Base in Hawaii, onlookers noticed that Michelle Obama was wearing a designer Sophie Theallet dress – that would’ve cost $2,000 in 2009 when she purchased it. She was also seen in a $950 Comme des Garcons skirt during an informal and low-key gathering. While admired by most, those who do not care for the first lady are quick to call her out for having expensive taste. Never mind that previous first ladies also dressed in designer originals as well. But, hey, it’s a recession.
No sólo se encuentran ejemplos de matrimonios de éxito en marcas comerciales. También hay casos de uniones muy rentables en el caso de firmas con un público mucho más selecto, como es el caso de Comme des Garçons. Su fundadora y alma mater, Rei Kawakubo, encontró en su marido, Adrian Joffe, al perfecto relaciones públicas.
Kawakubo creó en 1969, en Tokio, Comme des Garçons, una firma de ropa femenina para mujeres que piensan como los chicos. Con la igualdad de género por bandera, Kawakubo ha conseguido contar con una tribu de seguidores fieles a su firma. Para ella, la elección de su ropa es un acto conceptual: una mujer elige vestir su firma.
Y fue precisamente dentro de su propia firma donde encontró al que hoy es su marido, Adrian Joffe. Joffe trabajó para ella desde 1987 hasta 1991. Un año después se casaron y comenzó a trabajar con ella. Actualmente Joffe es presidente y administrador de la empresa. Además, es el único portavoz de la marca. Joffe es la voz de Kawakubo frente a los medios de comunicación. Ella crea y él gestiona.
The critics weigh in on Friday's shows in Paris.

“A whimsical show of dark androgyny: all wild black hair weeping under black hats and tailored clothes that gave an elegant edge to the dark side.” (International Herald Tribune)“This time, she went for old-time pink roses on gray suiting, sweet polka dots and boxy shorts or culottes with jackets that evoked the classic Chanel cardigan. … All these elements felt warmly and securely Comme des Garcons.” (On The Runway)“In the shadow land between the New York Dolls and the girls of St. Trinian’s, Rei Kawakubo had nailed the theme of her new collection: Neither Man Nor Woman.” (Style.com)“Rei Kawakubo continues to prophesize the gender gap.” (SHOWstudio.com)
Last season, Rei Kawakubo used bridal lace in her men's collection; this time, she went for old-time pink roses on gray suiting, sweet polka dots and boxy shorts.
