Stephen Jones + Comme des Garcons to launch scent
The brilliant british creator of hats Stephen Jones has teamed up with Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawabuko to create his first fragrance. This interesting cross over is expected to be launched some time in July to September 2008.
You can actually find Stephen Jones’ hats right now at Comme des Garçons botiques. Stephen believes that hats and fragrance are very similar in the sense that they both bring a romantic touch. Stephen Jones has been friends with Rei Kawabuko since 2005 when he installed an exhibition at the designer’s concept store. So he did a number of sketches and Rei approved them and provided some input as well.
The bottle is inspired by a late 19th century inkwell. You can see how ribbon, the netting, and the hat box reminds you of Stephen Jones’ brilliance in his hat creations. It brings a unique mixures of both tradition and modernity. It will retail for 75 pounds in 55 ml bottles.
