This November, Comme Des Garcons is set to design a line for chain retailer H&M. Headed by Rei Kawakubo, they are expected to design womenswear, menswear, childrenswear, accessories, and a new frangrance. Kawakubo spoke about the line with British Vogue,
"I have always been interested in the balance between creation and business," says Kawakubo of the collaboration. "It is a dilemma, although for me creation has always been the first priority. It is a fascinating challenge to work with H&M since it is a chance to take the dilemma to its extreme, and try to solve it."
