Comme des Garçons x Mikimoto
These Comme des Garçons x Mikimoto necklaces are the stunning result of two luxury Japanese designers - one with a knack for classic beauty and another with an itch for the Avant Garde - coming together for the ultimate capsule collection. At Paris Couture Week in January, legendary designer Rei Kawakubo, founder and creative director of Comme Des Garçon, presented her first ever fine jewellery collaboration. Consisting of 7 pearl necklaces, the collection highlights both Mikimoto’s unparalleled quality and expert craftsmanship, in tandem with Kawakubo’s rebellious design aesthetic.
Each of the seven unisex necklaces are rooted in the unexpected marriage of pearls and metal. Beyond this, the choice is in the hands of the buyer. Pieces range from chunky chains and a bold CdG pendant, to a complete pearls-on-pearls look. In this way, the collaboration successfully brings together not only its designers but its wearers, as well. So whether you’re a Breakfast at Tiffany’s kind of girl, or prefer lunch at Dover Street Market’s Rose Bakery, look out for this collection expected to drop in-stores this month.
