A Rei Kawakubo x Comme des Garçons Retail Collection Is Heading to the Met Store
The first Monday in May is upon us, and we’re ready to withstand a TON of Instagram envy later tonight—but why let it end there? Once the 2017 Met Gala becomes a thing of the past and we’ve pored over the "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between" exhibit a billion times, we’ll still have a lot of sartorial-inspo to fuel us through the coming months. Enter: the Met Store.
As a complement to the Costume Institute’s spring exhibit (running from May 4 through Sept. 4, 2017), the Metropolitan Museum of Art will launch an exclusive retail collection of Kawakubo-inspired Comme des Garçons products.
According to a Met Store press release, the pocket shop will offer 11 exclusive items, including: “a new style of the iconic lace sweater from the fall 1982 collection, a Nikelab Air Pegasus 83 for Comme des Garçons, three unisex exhibition T-shirts, a staff coat, two tote bags, a set of enamel pins, and two wallets.”
We have a feeling the Met Store is about to see some serious foot traffic. Game ON.
