French for “like boys”, Comme des Garçons of Rei Kawakubo is willing to “Comme” on to any hookup.

The Japanese fashion label famous for oppressive use of monochrome distressed fabrics that were asymmetrical. Tears, holes and frayed edges were Comme des Garçons’ main fashion feature—not exactly what Louis Vuitton brand brings to mind. This should be a fun pair up.

One thought on “Louis cum Garçon”

  1. I purchased a way-too-tiny LV tote and discovered that it was nonetheless too small for me and it was constantly falling off my shoulder. Made a decision to try the real USPO Mail Carrier Bag and I really like it! Just the right dimension with much more compartments than the Vera brand. And it doesn’t fall off my shoulder as the strap is adjustable. Just an all around fantastic bag. Advocate it highly for a person who doesn’t want to have a ton of problems with excess compartmental areas.
