Life must be amazing for Tavi Gevinson at the moment. The 13-year-old blogger du jour, who has captivated the world with her daily blog entitled Style Rookie, was featured inPop magazine earlier this year and also bagged front-row seats at New York Fashion Week (and even missed school to be there). As if that wasn't enough, WWD has now reported that the kooky (mini) fashionista will be venturing to Tokyo to attend the Comme de Garcons holiday party on 27 November at the 10 Corso Como store, as the guest of honour. and her quirky dress sense, not only landed the cover of
Tavi must feel as though she is the luckiest girl in the world right now, especially given that she has previously blogged about her love of Rei Kawakubo and how she "scatters black petals her doorsteps and serenades her in rap". We can only imagine how jealous her school friends will be on her return.
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?
Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garcons designer will collaborate with Vogue Japan on a pop up show. The project will resemble a "magazine you can walk into" and will run from the end of May until the end of the year.
Each month will see a new theme and will showcase the works of the likes of Takashi Murakami, Chanel and Martin Margiela.
