Comme Des Garcons x Côte&Ciel Collection
Pioneered through London’s off-beat Dover Street Market, Comme Des Garcons have partnered with Parisian bag designers Côte&Ciel to create a collection of vividly coloured and spotted sleeves for the Macbook and iPad.
Gadget fashion has become more and more focused on gentrifying one’s electronics, with numerous covers and cases constructed from natural fabrics or styled to resemble books. However, Comme Des Garcons x Côte&Ciel have pushed this firmly to one side to instead focus on creating bold, synthetic, futuristic looking neoprene sleeves.
Working off Côte&Ciel’s signature ‘diver’ sleeves, Comme Des Garcons’ patterning sees asymmetric blobs applied to the covers, oddly combining a sense of randomness and order to give a disjointed and eye-catching pop to the sleeve. Add to this a vivid palette and these pieces can’t help but get noticed, whilst providing something different to the increasingly common neon coloured leather cases that have infiltrated street style lookbooks from London to Tokyo.
Providing their own take on the trend for gadget covers as stand out accessories, Comme Des Garcon x Côte&Ciel offer a welcome twist to a trend that is still in the realms of the fashionista, making you more then just that everyday fashionable chap.
You can get your hands on one of these striking accessories over at Dover Street Market now.
