Comme des Garcons Patch Shirt
Using a blue pinstripe shirt as the base, Comme des Garcons have created the Patch Shirt – a long sleeved shirt which features a variety of raw cut patterned materials stitched together to create a ‘patchwork effect’ front panel.
Other key features include: single button cuffs, 100% cotton construction, a curved hem and pleated rear yoke.
The Comme des Garcons shirt is fashion Marmite at its best. In principle it shouldn’t work due to the clashing of different patterns, but with the rough edges juxtaposing the pastel colour palette, the contrast balances the two elements. The end result being a garment that works extremely well. For those of you who aren’t afraid of adding prints and patterns to your outfit – both of which are THE major trends this season – this shirt could be the perfect statement piece for your wardrobe.
The key to integrating an item like the Comme des Garcons shirt into your outfit is to keep the surrounding pieces simple and stripped back, allowing the shirt to become the single focal point. Try pairing it with straight leg jeans, a timeless trench and neutral coloured footwear for an effortless spring statement.
The Comme des Garcons Patch Shirt is available at Coggles.
