About this CDG x SNS garment
Our original FISHERMAN sweater - with a short zipper - was the starting point for the collaboration with COMME des GARCONS.
We believe that the original creative spark came from the idea to reduce the functional stripe of bubbles on the sleeve - to a purely aesthetic trait.
It seems like the yellow stripe was designed to mimick the original width of the bubbles on the lower sleeve - thereby referencing the interplay between function & aesthetics. This idea was then applied across the 4 (12) original designs.
Rei Kawakubo added a precisely designated yellow stripe - only on the sleeves, adding a newfound finesse to an otherwise very understated design.
Features a RIRI zipper.
Notice that this product was knitted in Herning, Denmark 2007/2008 as a collaboration with COMME des GARCONS.
Back then, we made a small run of extra garments - and these have been kept securely in our archives since then. Now we decided to sell a few of them - we were very honoured to make them back then, and wanted to share.
Sweater with zipper closure knitted in a firm fabric with our iconic "bubbles" - made with an 8GG machine, knitted in 100% pure, new virgin wool.
Wash your knitted wool garment by hand or dry clean. Remember always to use lukewarm water and mild, wool-safe detergent. Never rub, scrub or wring and always dry flat.
This sweater was made in 2007/2008. We changed the fit for the FISHERMAN sweaters in winter 2018, returning to the original fit which was more generous in the body.
This means: if you already have a FISHERMAN from before 2018, you can use same size - if you have one after winter 2018, you can consider sizing up for this CDG x SNS piece.
