The fashion house Comme des Garçons was established in 1973 by Rei Kawakubo,
who has become the avant-garde ""anti-fashion"" queen. She challenged the accepted norm with the belief that weird can be beautiful-and triumphed.
Her fragrance line also pushes the envelope; CdG's individualistic,
masculine-leaning numbered fragrances marry the synthetic scents of
real-life to the machine world (dust on hot light bulb! Flaming rock! Ink!
Bamboo!), while the predominantly unisex ""Series"" scents follow a theme.
Finally, a majority of the CdG line is all under one roof: ours. Robots in
bamboo hats are dancing with joy.
