When Comme des Garçons teamed up with The Beatles trademark on co-branded merch in late 2009, it was something of a magical mystery, minus the tour. Would it be a bunch of overpriced concert tees? Would any remaining Beatles be involved? And what's the connection anyway between an iconic English band and an iconic Japanese juggernaut? The answers: no, no, and we're still not sure. But we do know the collaboration was met with universal nods of approval.
Now, on February 17, Comme des Garçons will release more styles from The Beatles Comme des Garçons collection. They include rucksacks ($680-860) in tartan prints or all black, both with that curious green apple and The Beatles logo, in addition to two new tartan shirts ($395) in red or blue check.
Available at Dover Street Market and Comme stores in Paris and New York, until the worldwide launch in April.
