Where the runway meets the street

For this Summer 2012, Comme des Garcons worked with outerwear specialists Mackintosh on 3 new jackets. Two for women and 1 for men have just been released in the Basement at Dover Street Market. These have all been made using the same procedure that developed in the 19th century to make classic Mackintosh pieces. Backing tapes on all seams, lining, and pockets are glue fixed to fully waterproof the garments, all of which are handmade in Britain.
