COMME DES GARCONS IN PRINT: Comme des Garçons is taking a look back over its diverse visual campaigns at the label’s Dover Street Market store in London. The fashion house has plastered images of its past campaigns, taken from as far back as 1969, when Rei Kawakubo founded the label, on a series of cubes and tunnels that have been placed throughout the artsy retail emporium. The exhibition, called “Printed Matter,” includes photographs by Peter Lindbergh, a work by artists Gilbert and George and images by the Argentinian artists’ collective Mondongo, which makes painterly collages from materials such as cookies and Plasticine, and have worked with Comme des Garçons on their most recent visual campaigns. The exhibition, which runs through Nov. 22, also includes images taken from Six magazine, which Comme des Garçons produced in the late Eighties and early Nineties.
