Treasure Hunting With ‘dot.COMME’


I live for anything vintage, no matter where it comes from.  Sometimes, it might come from a junky flea market, a stoop sale in the hood, a garage sale during a random intentional visit to the suburbs or simply, a vintage shop.  And although I might not always be successful in finding a treasure amidst tons of crap, the ‘thrill of the hunt’ is what it’s all about.  Now tasteful curation doesn’t really come to mind but after a while, it does help, especially when you have a huge appetite for avant-garde designers, specifically COMME des GARÇONS.  Luckily, now there’s ‘dot.COMME‘ here to help.

The name ‘dot.COMME’ is a nod to their mode of trade (the internet) +  Rei Kawakubo’s COMME des GARÇONS.  Owners Octavius La Rosa + Holly-Rose Butler focused on the intersection of fashion + art, which is exactly what COMME is all about.  To many admirers, COMME des GARÇONS is considered wearable art.  Among archival + past-season pieces from COMME, you will also find Kawakubo’s protégé label Junya Watanabe, Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake + Belgian, Walter Van Beirendonck.  To further illustrate the genius of ‘dot.COMME’, stylist Mark Vassallo + photograph Gadir Rajab pulled some rare COMME pieces to create this genius story for Oyster magazine.  Love, love, love the graffiti on the hair – unique break from chalky hair!

Happy hunting!
