About

Extremely rare COMME des GARCONS oversized knitted sweater decorated with randomly placed holes, circa 1982.

This sweater was made under the 'HOMME COMME des GARCONS' label which was the first ever menswear Rei Kawakubo designed for her brand, in 1984 it would become the more well known 'COMME des GARCONS HOMME PLUS' label.
