Comme des Garcons Commes to H&M…and it Ain’t Cheap!

September 26, 2008 • Fashion

According to NYMag, the new Comme des Garcons H&M collection has women in a fit. Why? Because a dress from the mass retailer is selling for a whopping $350! That isn’t much for a Comme des Garçons, but for one made for H&M? It’s out of control. Apparently these dresses are different than the Karl, Stella and Viktor & Rolf garments of collections past. Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo told BlackBook these are all Comme, from the construction to the details :

The collection is constructed around Comme des Garçons’ style. Rather than aiming to make clothes that no one has ever seen before, it is very much Comme des Garçons to its roots. My priority has always been creativity, which was not the least bit compromised with this collection. That was the last thing H&M wanted us to do. Otherwise they wouldn’€™t have asked us.

So will you line up for this collection? What are your thoughts?
