Commes des Garcons is to collaborate with The Beatles and Apple Corps Ltd.
Kawakubo’s Japanese fashion house, Commes des Garcons, has teamed up with the London-based company that represents the iconic band’s legacy and musical catalogue.
The new collection is due to launch mid-November under the Beatles and Commes des Garcons label.
According to WWD, the new designs will debut at Dover Street market, Kawakubo’s multi-brand emporium in London and Gyre in Tokyo, with additional distribution to follow.
The precise details of the collaboration are currently under-wraps; however the deal between Kawakubo and Apple Corps is said to be a long-term one.
If we’re lucky, this could lead to future collaborations with it being rumoured that Kawakubo is lining up a collection of Beatles-themed T shirts.
