Fall 1995

 

Comme des Garçons has always been more than a clothing brand. Designer Rei Kawakubo likes to oversee everything about the company and that includes their advertisments. Under creative directors like Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and Stephen Wolstenholme, the ads usually constist of ready made imagery or an artist collaboration (or both), forgoing the usual phographer and models. Because of this, they speak more about the spirit and humour of the company than the actual clothes and retain a timelessness that can be enjoyed throughout the years. Here is a great collection of ads from the past 2o years.
