Comme des Garcons x Matt Groening: Why the Simpsons' Creator Trusted Rei Kawakubo '100%' With the Collaboration
In today's collab-happy times, joint ventures (particularly on the high street) are a dime a dozen. But when we learned that legendary animator Matt Groening, the man behind both The Simpsons and the late-70s comic strip Life in Hell, was launching a capsule line with Comme des Garçons, we were intrigued. While the fashion flock boasts some interesting characters, to be sure, cartoons and couture have seemingly little in common. Turns out, however, that Groening was quite familiar with Rei Kawakubo's avant-garde designs long before the pair partnered up.
