SALOMON is honored to announce the unveiling of the first instalment of its collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS at the occasion of the Spring 2021 presentation of their collection in Tokyo.
Under the theme of DISSONANCE, COMME des GARÇONS paired their collection with two footwear styles created collaboratively with Salomon. The first style is a platform shoe (Sense Feel) inspired by the silhouette of a Spring 2013 style from COMME des GARÇONS and hybridized with the sporty lines of Salomon. The second style is an homage to the Mary Jane, an iconic reference of COMME des GARÇONS footwear, merged with the technical features of the RX 3.0 from Salomon. Both styles are exclusive to COMME des GARÇONS and will be available as of March 2021 from their own brand stores and Dover Street Market.
“I was very happy to work with Salomon having worn their shoes for many years, but I was especially impressed by their openness in developing the designs which I wanted to do, and which, although based on their iconic shapes, were things that they have never done before technically. It is rare to find such passion for creation and the good will to invest the time and huge eort needed to achieve it.” Rei Kawakubo
