comme des garcons

The Comme Des Garcons ‘Peace’ t-shirt:


$195 CAD ($155.79) from SSense.

Your girlfriend always wants to get you something really awesome for your birthday.  She pays attention to everything you say, so she knows what you’re into… military stuff, camouflage, that olive color etc.  You’re a nice boy, but like to think you’re edgy.  She saw this shirt on SSense and saw it had so many things you like, including that non threatening yet potentially edgy “Soldier of Peace” painted lettering along with the bonus flipped “Strong lover” just to let em know.  *clicked, CC info type in… shipped… wrapped*.  Flash forward two weeks to your annual special day… the celebration of your birth.  You tear the thoughtful camouflage pattern paper off the glossy white SSense box and take a deep breath while you raise the lid.  Instantly your brain says “OH SHIT”, but your smiling cheek to cheek and you give her a huge hug and a kiss, and say thanks.  You instantly feel like a piece of trash, because you’re already scheming and plotting on ways you’ll have an unfortunate accident, rendering the shirt unwearable.  The look in the picture is the exact look you see in the mirror when you’re alone and try it on for the first time.


Polkadotted Digital Camouflage


Supreme x Comme Des Garcons… wow this is hard on the eyes:






I just posted a few of the pieces, but they are all equally as hideous.  You can check out all 29 pages worth of pictures in the lookbook over at Supreme.  I feel that the two solid color dress shirts with the sleeve accents are the most wearable, but you wouldn’t catch me spending Supreme capsule collection money on those.

I’m not the biggest fan of digital camouflages on streetwear in the first place, then they go and put contrast polkadots on it?  *Pusha-T Yeeeeechhhh*

In my opinion Supreme is really coming across as a “Tryhard” brand lately.
