COMME DES GARÇONS - CONCRETE
In a world where concrete is ubiquitous, the
mundane fabric of urban cityscapes, now it
is given disparate context: the uniquely refined
realm of perfumery. Here, the prosaic is
treated as precious; stereotypes subverted.
A versatile material finds an unpredictable
form. An exploration of destruct ion,
construction and creation, CONCRETE is a
fragrance where material preconceptions
are deftly demolished, paving the way for
something new.


DESTRUCTION,CONSTRUCTION,
CREATION
Destruction: The richness of Sandalwood is
shattered to reveal its very essence, a
radically new scent emerging from its
fractured form.
Construction: New contrasts are created
through familiar fabrics. Industrial synthetics
pierce natural familiarity; artificial rose
oxide distorts an opulent woody overdose.
Creation: Layers of resinous warmth are
lacquered with metallic seams, built upon a
foundation of Comme des Garçons’ spice
signature.


DESIGN
The juice is contained within a shell of
concrete and glass, hand-finished and held
within a pocket of bubble-wrap. No longer
does concrete create hegemony: here, each
vessel is uniquely formed. Irregularity is
celebrated. Abstracted from its monolithic
framework, this material has a startling
impact; it commands fresh interpretation,
invites new impressions. An investigation into
subjectivity and context, here archetypes of
beauty and conventions of luxury are wholly
dissembled by Comme des Garçons.


An exceptional scent created from fragments
of familiarity, CONCRETE is Comme des
Garçons disruptive approach to design distilled
into scent.

Comme Des Garçons
The fashion house Comme des Garçons was established in 1973 by Rei Kawakubo, who has become the avant-garde ""anti-fashion"" queen. She challenged the accepted norm with the belief that weird can be beautiful-and triumphed. Her fragrance line also pushes the envelope; Comme des Garçons's individualistic, masculine-leaning numbered fragrances marry the synthetic scents of real-life to the machine world (dust on hot light bulb! Flaming rock! Ink! Bamboo!), while the predominantly unisex ""Series"" scents follow a theme. Finally, a majority of the Comme des Garçons line is all under one roof: ours. Robots in bamboo hats are dancing with joy.
