Gucci x Commes des Garçons' shopper tote bag
1/1

Commes des Garçons’ founder, Rei Kawakubo, is easily a cornerstone of the fashion landscape we see today. The 76-year-old visionary of the Japanese cult label redefined the meaning of fashion and the urban creative, pioneering a new generation of fashion-designers-cum-thought-leaders such as Gucci’s Alessandro Michele that has led to countless inspiring works. Now, everything has finally come full circle, with Michele teaming up with the queen herself for an ongoing collaboration with CDG. After launching their first shopper-style tote last December, the two fashion house giants are now unveiling the latest offering – a revamped shopper tote iteration that is probably the best arm candy you’ve ever shouldered. Featuring the Commes des Garçons logo, with Gucci’s signature stripe running down the transparent shell of a brown paper inner, this year’s iteration champions a floral-embellished print over the shell that pays homage to the Tokyo-born icon as well as that fall floral flair your weekend shopping demands. The bag will be available in all the Comme Des Garçons and Dover Street Market stores from the beginning of September. There will be also 100 special edition pieces, each with an individually numbered label, which will be sold exclusively on Gucci’s website.
