Bought in the 1990s and worn only a few times, this exquisite Comme Des Garcons skirt has been in storage for many years, is still in very good condition and is, indeed, a rare find. Made in France from a coarsely woven 100% woollen fabric, it features a sumptuous velvet yoke made from a silk blend material which has a luxurious sheen. Typical of this now famous fashion design empire, the skirt front features raw, deliberately fraying seams and fabric "flowers" which give it the distressed/ deconstructed look which originally garnered both acclaim and controversy back in the 1980s.
It typifies the label's spirit of offbeat decadence. Labelled a size S, the skirt would fit most sizes as it is a wrap-around. It is shown on a UK 12/14 mannequin.The item "Rare Vintage Comme Des Garcons Wrap-Around Woollen Skirt With Velvet Yoke Size S" is in sale since Wednesday, September 19, 2018.
