Play, the much loved range from Commes des Garcons shows the fun side of the major fashion house with quirky t-shirts that everyone wants their hands on.
Founded by Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garcons is a renowned fashion house known for its avant-garde Japanese style. With numerous different lines and ranges including Play, Comme des Garcons has collaborated with different designers such as Tao Kurihara and Junya Watanabe across the years to build up its credible yet fun reputation.
Comme des Garcons Play is a line that embraces fun and adds mischief to the brand. It combines the originality and exploration as the rest of Comme des Garcons with the sense of amusement that has made it just as popular as the day the brand was released. Designed by Rei Kawakuba herself, the line is instantly recognized by its logo created by Filip Pagowski, graphic artist. The bug-eyed heart logo is seen across the brand that is made up of t-shirts, knitwear and accessories to name a few. Whether positioned in a patch on one side of the t-shirt or cleverly developed into a collage, the logo gives the brand the element of fun that was craved.
The line of t-shirts has particularly caught our eyes here at Inhale Fashion. With graphic prints popular across all seasons this year, Play is bang on trend. By using simple block colours and that famous logo, these t-shirts can be easily worn and worked into your casual wardrobe. The black and white style t-shirts that play with the bug eyed element of the logo keep to the urban cool trend; match with a pair of coloured chinos and knitted cardigan and your look is complete. Play’s long sleeved striped t-shirt is perfect for the coming winter months. With the red heart logo placed at the side, the tee can be effortless worn to make you part of the CdG club.
The polo necks that Play has to offer are definitely not to be missed. Undoubtedly simple, the polo’s which come in black, white or grey are the best way to slip Comme des Garcons into your wardrobe and go well with your favourite pair of jeans.
