We are excited to now be carrying a beautiful selection of Comme des Garcons wallets! After lusting over CdG leather goods for years, we finally pulled the trigger and brought them into the Johan family.
Unfamiliar with this renowned brand? Well then! A little history for you:
Comme des Garçons is a prestigious fashion label founded by Rei Kawakubo in Japan in 1973. Kawakubo attended Keio University for art and literature, but it was her job at a textile factory that changed her career path. In 1967 she became a freelance stylist and two years later started to design clothes under Comme des Garçons which is French for “like boys.”
Kawakubo has always had a unique vision, a very solidified idea of what her brand would become. Based on the unexpected, her pieces tend to push boundaries. We can see it in her first collections and it’s also evident now. Kawakubo once said “You can tell it's a good collection if people are afraid of it. In ten years, everyone will love it.”
Comme des Garçons Luxury Leather line are wallets made in Spain with 100% cowhide leather. Beautiful and meticulously made pieces that stand apart from other luxury items, Comme des Garcons wallets ooze simplicity and subtle functionality. Wallets are something you use, touch, and look at multiple times a day. In a way they represent you without you even realizing it. A good wallet should last many, many years and become somewhat of a staple in your wardrobe. With a variety of sizes and styles, there is a Comme des Garcons wallet for everyone.
Our full range of Come des Garcons wallets are available at the Johan #shhhshop in Portland, Oregon as well in our online store.
