The first images are coming out for Rei Kawakubo's design collaboration (for Comme des Garcons) with The Beatles, and so far the reactions haven't been as stellar as you'd imagine with such a powerhouse link-up. The collection features items including this bag, which mixes the CdG signature polka dots and the Apple Corps Ltd logo.
Kawakubo respected Sir Paul McCartney's request that none of the bags be made of leather, so all pieces feature printed PVC or embossed polyurethane. Items in the line will sell for $115 (for a t-shirt) to $860 (for a higher-end bag), and they'll start selling at the Trading Museum in Tokyo on Nov. 20. Adrian Joffe, Comme des Garcons CEO, said to WWD that the line will branch out slowly to other international stores, with new styles added gradually.
So what about you: Is this what you'd expect from a Beatles bag? Will you buy from the line when it's in stores near you?
