Gucci x Comme des Garcons Scarves

Gucci x Comme des Garcons Scarves

A silk scarf in itself is a lavish accessory; ostentatious and elegant. In fact French parfumeur Blaise Mautin used silk scarves as a tool to further augment the fragrant reach of the bespoke scents he created for his clients; as the scarf blows in the air, so the fragrance is further wafted amongst those lucky enough to be within close proximity. But in this particular instance, the sole function of the scarves are purely aesthetic – and they do that job well.

A somewhat unlikely collaboration between Rei Kawakubo’s Japanese Comme des Garcons and staple fashion house Gucci, the collaboration shows the progression in creative strategy since Alessandro Michele’s appointment as Creative Director of Gucci in January 2015.



The designs are more Gucci than Comme des Garçons it has to be said, with the floral designs taking precedence in an overriding classic design. Comme des Garcon’s signature moniker in red marks the collaboration as official, in a style typical of the Japanese fashion house.

The scarves are now available from Dover Street Market stores globally and from Gucci’s flagship store in Via Montenapoleone, recently remodeled by Alessandro Michele to showcase his first collection for the house.
