Louis Vuitton x Comme des Garcons


Louis Vuitton and Comme des Garcons are to open a joint store in Tokyo. From September, the two big fashion labels will be co-habiting the same store for a three-month period.

The move will see Comme des Garcons founder Rei Kawakubo design six one-off bags in Vuitton's famous monogram pattern.

Vuitton's creative director Marc Jacobs said:

"It is impossible to overstate Rei Kawakubo's influence on modern fashion....I find it wonderful to think that 30 years ago, this immense talent, someone who has inspired so many others, was inspired by Louis Vuitton."

Kawakubo, who is also designing a one-off line for high street chain H&M this winter (Yay!), has designed the space, which will sit within the Comme des Garcons shop off Omotesando, but Vuitton is investing in it financially and all profits will be divided.
