comme des garcons shirt

Keeping the scrapbook spirit of Rei Kawakubo’s old magazine Six alive, print advertisements for Comme des Garçons Shirt have featured cave paintings, comics, birds, trucks, Pet Shop Boys lyrics, 1970s porn, 16th century Flemish painting – seemingly anything but shirts. The current campaign presents specially commissioned disco canine sculpture by Simen Johan (above), while last year it was a series of Stephen Shanabrook and Veronika Georgieva’s paper surgeries (below), disfiguring and reconfiguring faces in much the same way that Kawakubo’s fashion has disfigured and reconfigured bodies.
