With a collection of vintage and archive pieces that will blow your mind. The URL couldn’t be more on point. The packaging is everything, in my case a sheet of paper folded into a large envelope and sealed with a beautiful cutout image of what could be a Comme des Garcons glove. Dot Comme might just be the coolest place to shop on the internet.

Two years ago Holly-Rose and Octavius launched an online store showcasing their collections of archival Comme des Garçons, Junya Watanabe, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Walter Van Beirendonck and Bernhard Willhelm (yes they sell exclusively these labels). All pieces in their store are researched thoroughly and include info from which season they are; think 1985 but also more recent pieces from the early 2000’s.

I was super impressed by the nineties Walter van Beirendonck pieces they have in store. Holly-Rose told me this fantastic story about Walter himself being a great supporter. When they arrived in New York for a collaboration with Opening Ceremony, they heard that it was Walter who recommended them. “When we met him Octavius was so trilled and just burst out with “I love you Walter” ha! Such a humble, kind man and we are very lucky to have acquired W&LT runway samples that are in storage and too special to sell.”

Alright I could go on typing a lot of mushy stuff about them but I won’t keep you here any longer, go look already!
