1990s Comme des Garcons Knit Shawl Poncho Jacket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a fabulous and versatile piece by cult label Comme des Garcon. It is cut almost as if it was turned upside down before the label was placed into it to denote which side should go up. This "upside down" feel results in a huge collar that drapes down as you see here or could be worn more up and around the shoulders and head for a more avant garde feel. I suspect that this is a piece that you could wear almost anyway that you could think up on how to style it. The fabrication is incredible, made up of hundreds of little knit flowers all pieces together side by side like a blanket. Their signature, silver huge safety pin sits at the front.

Unlined with padding circling the arms for slight shape and support there once on. 100% wool and I see no size tag - this would fit a variety of sizes.

Length: 33" from top to bottom (16" from inner tag to bottom) x 23" wide

Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-MED

This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
